    Listed our small soapstone stove FS here.

    Forgot to sell it last year. Definitely selling it so someone will get a good deal.

    I have thought about getting a stove put in on the first floor. Only reason I haven't done it is because I would need to put a liner in my chimney in the living room which is $$$. Right now I spend under $1k on oil every year including heating for most of the year and hot water. I supplement with the stove when the temperature dips down. Therefore the justification drags out over multiple years. The problem I have with my current stove is that it won't last for a long time. Therefore it will be out by the time I get home from work. Leave at 4:30am for the gym and won't get home from work until 6ish.

    I have registers in both bedrooms which are located at one end of the house right above the stove. The registers have variable speed fans on them on the basement side and area between the register and fan has been sealed with foil tape. I also leave the basement door open which allows a return for the cold air back down to the basement.

    I do not have forced air ductwork. This stove originally had forced air through the inside of the stove, but my cousin cut that system out and welded the holes shut in order to increase capacity of the stove for a longer burn time.

    Re: Wood stove

    New stove ordered. Should be here in a week and a half.

    Harman offered a $1428 credit towards the purchase of a new Harman pellet or gas stove (they don't make wood stoves anymore), or that much towards a brand new leftover TL-300 (at $3200), or that much towards any Vermont Castings stove. So much for their lifetime warranty (which they define as 10 years). They prorated it and came up with that figure. More than I thought I'd end up, but not even 1/3 the cost of a new replacement stove.

    My local wood stove shop who I bought it from thought this was bullshit so they offered to just write a check to me for the credit amount if I let them take the old stove. They are coming to pick it up in the next week.

    Looking forward to the new stove.

    I've been running the fan kit on the Harman this whole time. It sure does throw heat, but it's an old tech hamster wheel style fan. Loud as hell. Hoping this new one will be a bit more living space friendly.

    Ours vibrates sometimes which is usually fixed easily enough. I usually bring in the little compressor a few times throughout the season and blow all the dust & shit out of it. Pretty much keeps it quiet enough.

    BTW - that Blaze King King Ultra is something I may look into. Looks like a helluva stove. Not that I'm disappointed with my Lopi. The King Ultra just seems a bit more...up to the task.

    When I ran a coal stove in the basement I cut some vents in the floor One above the stove and 2 at the extreme distance
    This provided good circulation. The other consideration was putting the stove under the real living areas where you spend
    most of your time

    Re: Wood stove

    Old stove is now gone. Now is the waiting game for the new one to come in. Hopefully by the weekend.

    In other news, picked up a cheap wood moisture meter to get a baseline on my wood before the new stove arrived. New stove calls for wood with 15-20% moisture content. Tested some of the wood we have waiting and it was right in that range (or below).

    I'll be setting up a solar kiln next summer to season new wood in 60 days to proper moisture content vs the two years it would take to get it there passively. I even found plenty of plastic sheeting in the basement I had bought for other projects way back when, so total cost will be just my time.

    Re: Wood stove

    I've been burning the bricks for a few years now. I think I've used the bio-brick brand brick as well as a few alternatives.

    I've bought them from a local sporting goods & marine store that used to run bulk orders. I can't even remember how I got in on that deal. Maybe craigs-list?!
    I've bought from the interwebs (woodpellets.com, Manchester NH). They seemed like they had a pretty good coverage area and might deliver to you?
    I've bought from tractor-supply. They put the bricks on sale periodically. Just show up with a truck and they usually have a pallet or two in the yard. Inspect the pallet before you buy though as they seem like they hire the blind to handle those pallets. The sawdust doesn't burn once exposed to moisture.

    I'd like to see the process involved when you're constructing that.

    We get a few packages here & there whenever we stop into Tractor Supply. They always seem to have plenty of them. Neat little idea. They light quickly, but leave *US* with little coals. I like keeping them around for Big Shirl. She's not patient enough to micro-manage the fire if it needs a restart. These things fire right up for her.

    There's no need to do anything crazy to help dry the wood. Cut it, split it, stack it, and cover it before the first day of summer, and start burning it in the fall of the same year. I burn mostly red oak and it's always less than 20% in 4-5 months. Simply keeping rainwater off it is the key to drying wood

    That's pretty much how we roll. Although this year it's mostly beech & birch, so only a few months works for us. I'm still curious to see how he slaps it together.

    I disagree with covering during spring/summer/fall though. I feel leaving it exposed actually helps it dry. I believe when the rain etc. evaporates, it helps draw moisture out of the wood as well. I'm an uneducated man and I have no scientific evidence, and I did NOT stay at a Holiday Inn Express last night. But for the last "x" amount of years I've been doing that, and it seems to help. All other factors being equal, of course.

    Re: Wood stove

    Solar kilns are super easy. I normally stack on pallets, so instead of covering with a tarp on the top, you just cover the the whole thing with clear plastic sheeting, tent it up in the center, and cut a couple holes in the ends to allow the heat/moisture to escape.

    Re: Wood stove

    I want to change up my wood storage method a bit as well. Currently I have a large second floor deck off of my barn, I've put some pallets under there and stack it out on those. Works alright but I'm going to have to rebuild that deck at some point and I'm thinking of closing it in to gain some more sq footage for the barn. I'm thinking something like this:
    Wood stove-firewoodshedplans17-jpg

    Anyone have any experience with these? I don't burn a ton of wood, seems like 1-1.5 cords a year. I like to run the stove on the weekends while we're at home all day and then whenever it drops below 20 degrees I keep it going 24/7. So my woodshed needs are really less geared towards getting a ton of wood seasoned in the spring, and more long term storage.

    Getting wood (heh...) is mixed. Sometimes I have a tree to drop that's good firewood, sometimes I'll get a cord delivered. I prefer the former as I get better control over the size of the splits but sometimes I don't have the time or opportunity to do it. I think 2 cords of storage is plenty, if I built it at 12x6x6 it would give me bit over 3 cords if I stacked it to the ceiling.
