      You'll get all sorts of opinions here. I grew up with open WB fireplaces and a pellet stove. Right now I own a WB and gas fireplaces.

      Fiberglass batts are a lifetime product that will not compress etc, but there is diminishing return when the compare the cost of blown-in vs. batts. Also more labor of cutting to shape.

      I like the floorplan. Not what I would have picked myself, but it works good. I just don't like the garage being so far away from the kitchen.

      That's what it looked like, and the few times I've seen them it looked like the guy was pushing around a broom (effort-wise).

      Probably 40% of my neighbors just use old-fashioned shovels over here...

      WI resident here.

      I almost never see single stage blowers over here. There are a few you can find at big-box stores though.

      Our main reason is we get a lot of slush and heavy snow. Single stage...

      ^ Yes, but it depends what you're really using it for.

      I posted above with that oil-less 15gal 5.4scfm Dewalt compressor that I have in my garage. Yes, it's pretty damn loud. But I don't mind it...
