    Hi folks -- I have a nice old Earth Stove 100 series and would like to build a small pine cabin on some rural property my father owns. The cabin will only be about 10' x 10', and I know this Earth Stove will be overkill for such a structure, but with an outside air inlet, running it at low temperature, would this be safe (if properly installed)? Any thoughts? This'll be a rustic cabin w/o electricity or water, so the only other reasonable heat source might be a kerosene heater or similar. I'd sure love to stick with curing hardwood, though, and the stove is in nice shape overall. Hate to let it just sit...

    Any thoughts would be very much appreciated. I suppose if it's safe but just a bit on the "hot" side, I could always sleep with a window cracked. 8^)

    Many thanks!

    I can't see how you will be able to get the clearances to combustibles and still fit anything else in the cabin!

    Too big, IMHO.
