Default wood stove

I have heated entire house with a Fisher Papa Bear for 35 years. It is a lot of work but a "warmer heat" than I can get from anything else.

I put a Summers Heat pellet stove in my detached garge/workshop about 2 years ago. LOVE the heat it puts out. Buying pellets can be a pita sometimes - and a little pricey - but it's incredibly efficient. A 50lb bag produces a small scoop of ash. About $5 per bag.

Although rather pricey "in season", places like Lowes and HD sell them at the end of the season for 50% off (about $650 vs. 1,200 - 1,300 normally).....
