Remember, money is no object
In that case...does multiple "likes" get me multiple stoves?...
Yup, would probably still burn wood just as much. Haven't yet found a way to stare mesmerized into the flames of the propane furnace or its predecessor, oil furnace. Would not install a gas fireplace just for ambiance, either- waste of energy. So it's wood. Studying flame keeps me a little less insane.
Do they have woodstoves on cruise ships ?.
l "liked" and will be waiting expectantly for a new stove . Of course, with me, I will never, ever, have that much money and I never buy lottery tickets. I could hold out for a rich woman to adopt me, but I'm married already and I'm an old fart (ugly as hell), so I sincerely doubt that would ever happen either.
But if I ever could be independently wealthy, then I probably would move to a warmer clime. Of course, I would still have some sort of wood burning stove, but I would build my new "expensive" house with wood burning in mind. A fairly small house (maybe 1200-1500 sf), open floor plan with bedrooms in upper lofts? I would also have all the wood gathering gadgets and a nice wood shed to put said gadgets in, as well as wood of course. Which I would have several years supply in advance, all oak of course.
I think winter actually wouldn't be half bad if a person didn't have somewhere they "had" to go. I hate getting up in the dark, blowing out the lane, scraping the car off, starting it (if it will start) and allowing it to warm up, then driving in to town with all the other nuts on the road. All just to get to work. Much better to get the fire up and sit by it with a hot cup of coffee and the smell of bacon, eggs, and home-fries wafting in and dreaming where I would spend more unlimited money that day........ Great, now I'm getting hungry.
You might be able to smuggle one of those Marine "Sardine" stoves in, and vent it out the port hole.

If money were no object, I wouldn't need Randy to buy me a new stove!
Yes...but still as a secondary heat source. I'd rip out the heat pump and install radiant floor heating. I had it for 2 years after we bought the house. Man o' man is that the most comfortable heat.
Now if we're dreaming, I'd sell my house. Design and build a small house around the concept of wood heat in the central living space with an open floor plan. I'd still have radiant floor heat. Of course this house would come with land and woods.
If money were no object, I'm sure most of us would still burn wood. Many might even continue processing there own wood. But I guarantee they would do it differently. Maybe a little something like this?
I would still have stove(s), but life would be easier.
NICE= I am with you Bro---- in Islip here
Howdy! Grew up in East Islip, lived in Islip for about 10 years, 15 years ago, now further out east. ;-
If money becomes no object for you, then you can buy Randy a new stove.
My kids are grown now and working with wood with my grandkids is one of our favorite things to do. The 10-year-old and the eight-year-old both have been doing it for a while and love putting on the big gloves and tending the fire. Two of the little ones three and four just like helping Papa carry wood into the house.
We get to spend time together and it sure beats teaching them how to turn the thermostat up. Don't think money would change that.
Great thread. I'd still burn wood. I mainly burn now to save money, but have really fallen in love with burning wood. I'd have acreage and a much better house.
I'd still have fires burning, but I'd hire a wood handling crew.
They'd all look like Anna Kournikova and clothes would be prohibited.
Or tropical islands?
I would still have a woodstove and burn wood. I'd have a better stove in a cooler house, but I'd still enjoy processing my own firewood. I can imagine it now..."Geeves, the chain is a tad dull"
Jeeze, I hope you don't burn birch.
more fire place less wood stove, but still burn'en.
Ok -I need help with that one...
Every time I ever burned birch, it popped and snapped, sounded like little explosions, sending sparks all over the place. Kind of tough on exposed skin, especially if there was a lot of it.
