Anybody using a lil house heater?
« on: August 30, 2010, 07:23:40 AM »
  I have a neighbor who purchased and installed a lil house heater.  Built in Missouri, it is an outside wood burner, just an air unit.  No boiler.  Looked at the website, says it will heat up to 2400sf.  Neighbor uses it to heat his shop.  Any comments?  I was looking at some way to heat my woodshop without causing a fire.
My name's Jim, I like wood.

I've looked at them before, seems to be nothing more than a 55 gallon metal drum inside a metal box, with a blower to circulate air. The price is reasonable, but I would be concerned about how many seasons you could get out of it before you had to replace the drum.

Scott Bradley is the dealer for those.  He is a good friend of mine.  I think the barrel lasts quite a while, and is easy to replace.  For the cost of these stoves, I dont think you could build it and run to lowes fifty times getting different parts if you know what I mean.  Call Scott or look at his website.  He is a good ol boy.
