    54 feet long @ 4.5 foot high @ 18" wide ? would be 364.50 cubic feet or 2.84 cords Nice wood pile . looks like you like to " Get-er-done " . Nice stove set up you have . New , new to you , had it awhile ? hows it work for you ? I also noticed you said you used about 1 cord last year . Do you use the stove for some "added heat" to the house or just a few rooms . Be proud of the stove and be proud of your pile .

    Roo - Thanks for the math, I bought the stove new last year we had a pretty mild winter last year (western new york area) My house is very well insulated, and holds the heat very well from the stove, it was are primary heat source with the the gas Furness as a backup when the stove died down towards morning. My house is a ranch style about 1,200 sq feet. I'm sure if we have a colder winter this year I will use allot of the 2.84 cord.

    The stove is great and you are right about the dancing flames it's nice to watch. I considered the 1400 model, but two much heat for the area I'm heating.

    Nice looking stack there Greg. Don't worry,winters in W. NY (and N.W. PA) are going to return to normal soon and you'll really be nice and warm - and saving a bundle on gas/oil.

    You know Jerry I have always liked Winter (I think all wood burners do) and now with the wood stove I love winters. I have been disappointed with our last two winters being mild for this area. I hope your right and winter comes back and makes up for the last two.

    I miss snow days at work :)

    What I really missed was snow tubing at Peek'N'Peak ski resort, just a few miles from here. Great fun for an 'older' man who's afraid to try the skis.

    I remember going to Peek’N’Peak along time ago, it was allot of fun, we try and get out to a place closer to us called Chestnut ridge park once a year.

    Of course last year they closed it for awhile because of the Erie County budget mess. :smirk:
