I've seen at least one high-end cooking stove with a back boiler on it. I don't recall the brand, but do remember it being pricey.

Cornishman, years ago we had many options for stoves and thermosyphen water heaters were common usally behind a kitchen cook stove. Cheap oil changed all that and almost drove wood and coal burning out of existence. Back when fuel oil was 16 cents a gallon there wasen't even much incentive to insulate a house. Frank C.

I think you have explained it Frank. Our oil prices went higher before yours. There is a lot of people here now burning wood. Big choice in stoves now so the competition must be driving prices down. A small good quality villager wood stove with a back boiler is less than 700 here. Interesting you mention a kitchen cooking stove heating water. Many  years ago I grew up in an old farmhouse with a solid fuel Rayburn which did most of the cooking and water heating in the winter. For convenience my parents converted it to oil but now I have the same Rayburn in my house running on wood again. Gone full circle. The Rayburn is a bit like me though, in need of refurbishing.

I have an older Fisher Papa Bear wood stove in the basement. The stove has a hood hanging over it, which has a thermostat and is plumbed into the return line to my air handler. Once the air temp reaches 100 degrees, the thermostat turns on the low speed fan in the air handler and puts a light trickle of warm air out of the vents in the house.
The house is 2800 s.f. and I can heat the house, without the heat pump coming on until it gets down into the 20's at night. Of course alot depends on daytime temp, amount of sunlight during the day and if I have been burning around the clock.

scleigh,one of my friends have kinda the same thing. No controls with it. I think he has an All Nighter? He put a hood over the stove and has legs on the hood to hold it over the stove. His is only about a foot above the stove. Than just 6 inch stove pipe to 3-4 6X12 vents in the floor. House is nice and warm.

That looks great scleigh. Unfortunately I have no where near the headroom you have in my crawlspace.

If I had that little bit of headroom, I'd be doing some digging.  ;D

Outside entry to bring wood in, and decent area to store some dry wood ahead.

Ray, I bet your friend captures a lot more  heat than I do, with the hood being so close to the stove. I would hit my head on the hood every time I loaded the stove if mine were any lower.
That being said, I still get the radiant effect from the stove being below the living room, the wood floor is always warm.

Neat to see a Fisher Papa Bear in North Carolina.  Those originated just out of town from here - The Fisher's up Camp Creek Rd.  Maybe they had production facility's on that side of the country?  They were very popular before deq regs.

Brad, I've got a baby bear also for my shop that I have not gotten around to installing yet. Bought both used from a man that had bought them new from a dealer in hickory, nc.
