Does anyone know where I can get an antique wood cook stove - 6 burner, double ovens, converted to either gas or electric? Locale is Greenville, North Carolina

I too am having a wood cookstove as my centerpiece in my new home. I found a guy in New Hampshire who does this for a living. I have no idea if he is willing to ship to you as it is drivable for us in Connecticut. If you are interested let me know.

I am afraid the shipping would be more than the actual conversion. I'll keep looking for someone in my area. I would like to continue to use the stove but new house is 1/3 size of current and this stove is huge. Currently we're using it in our guest house. Downsizing is such a chore sometimes.

Thanks for all your help.

** I am afraid the shipping would be more than the actual conversion. **

I doubt it. A totally upgraded older stove can run $3,000-$5,000 (see the following link). Shipping by a cartage company might be several hundred dollars, surely less than $1,000.

I do not know of anyone in North Carolina that provides such a service. Many of the companies I know of that offer such a service are in California.

Thanks DanO - I'll look into it. It really is a beautiful stove. Would look great in the bungalow's kitchen. Would leave it as wood burning but can't hardly cook on electric and have real trouble with gas. Wood would be totally out of my realm! Thanks again.

I am interested in the contact information for the person that you found in New Hampshire that converts wood cook stoves to electric or gas. Thank you for your help.
