    I built this indoor updraft boiler 3 years ago been working fine, An thinking about moveing to FL. do to major back problems and on disablity and to sell I may have to move boiler. In maine it is ok now to have two boilers but my homemade is not ul listed. Will give boiler to get it moved,it does come apart and the storage tanks are 4 seperte tanks. I use 4-41/2 cord per year house and basement house is 1000 sq, feet. It is hooked up see it run before take apart.
    Like I said i am just thinking about this now but will be this spring when I list house and wanted to know what kind of feed back I may get by doing it this way? Have photos and more info, put in my user name and i think my post will pop up with photos,
    If buyer would want to keep it that only way would not do this he would have to understand everything,about it.

I did have some numbers on that let me look them up, I clean dust out of it once a year it burns clean,ashs once a week depends on burn time, People that do but my house could make it right running another chimney or direct vent oil boiler [new also] this would be a good deal for someone just some work moveing

    couple more photo of unit with no insulation yet,
    I thought of doing this cause it would cost me about same if I tried seell it and/or move it so seems like a way to get it done. I in process of checking prices and lineing up what I neeed to do to sell and move,would be couple months if anyone is interested,lot more building photos too.

    Thanks for pics. Great looking build.

    Good deal for someone that already has underground lines and outbuilding for existing (old boiler).
