Install stove with back boiler

    Looking for advice, recently purchased a property in need of renovations. Approx 170 Sq/M Bungalow.

    I plan on removing the fireplace and replacing with a Stove and back boiler and looking for advise on the plumbing of the stove. The house has approx 13 radiators and has oil fired central heating. I plan on converting the attic next year so will need approx 4 more radiators to heat another 80 Sq/M.

    What KW Stove would be suitable for this? Also the plumbing of the stove, should there be 2 copper pipes running to it or 4? I ask this as I will be renovating the Room before Stove is installed and will like to run the copper pipes under the floor and into the hall before fitting a new floor. Would anyone have advice on this?

    I will be getting a plumber to install the Stove, but just to have the pipe in place before that stage would be helpful.

    Running the pipes before you have the stove measurements is a bad idea. 4 pipes is fine. 2 must be gravity circuit and 2 pumped. But a site visit by a plumber is the only way to know if this is suitable to be honest
