Here we go again for another 7 months or so
Nothing pretty, but it burns just about anything and heats a drafty ~5000 sq ft building.
It's a piece of pipe from the TAPS. About 4ftx7ft, almost 5/8" thick, weighs about 2000 lbs.
Can't seem to edit, but I wanted to add that I have no idea how the dog can like laying there. The night I took that pic it was -15 outside and the stove was going full bore.
ha! Nice home made "barrel" stove!
My two have gravitated to the stove as well. The little one will lay half on the hearth right in front of the glass. when she gets up, her skin is hot to the touch, but she seems to like it!
I loved watching my cats vary their positions when I had a freestanding burner.
Before the days of flat computer monitors my calico cat would spend her winter roosted on the back of my 19" monitor. That thing threw out a lot of heat.
Daaaa-um! Those Jotul's are so beautiful.
She is burning now and it is just a mesmerizing appliance. I could sit in front of it all day watching the flames dance.

This was an evening fire the other night just to take the chill out of the house. I love watching that fire swirl.
What kind of stove is that again? I really like it.
It's a Pacific Energy Fusion. We have been very happy with it. When the cold sets in the stove is hot until spring. Depending on the species of wood in the piles and the temps outside we burn 5-7 cords.
Looks like the one I built
Got a bit warm tonight. I've been burning up junk wood lately but it was getting late so I loaded it up with birch this time. Big difference in heating speed!
280*?! No idea how, I'm dripping sweat at 1/3 of that temp.
Honestly that's a bit warm for me. 240, sure but 280 is kind of crazy. I held the door open for a while before I went in.
Dunno, I'm plenty happy at temps around 65-70* I don't like sweating.
Just guessing here but it's probably a sauna.
You must have young kids with that fence around the stove. We had the same thing for a while. I couldn't stand it but it served it's purpose.
I do, 9 months and 3yrs old. Need the gate around the stove.
