    Hi All,

    Just wanted to say thanks and I am glad I found this site. Been lurking and I have already gotten a lot a good info that helped me build my hearth and wall protector. I had a pro come and run the ss chimney out through the wall and up the side of the house. I figured it was worth it for the peace of mind knowing it was done right, especially since my old farmhouse is essentially a tinderbox.

    The stove does a great job, although it does eat through some wood. But it should be far cheaper than what I have been spending on propane heat (especially since I have several cords of free oak firewood thanks to hurricane Irene last year.

    I would like to hook a blower to the stove. Does anyone have a recommendation?

    I was looking at something like this:

    Thanks and happy burning,

    -B

    Either of those blowers will work. Do you have the piping that runs from the blower to the inlet on the stove? It's about a 3 foot long piece of flex steel.

    I have an Allnighter in my basement that heats roughly 4000 sq ft pretty well. They throw a ton of heat and have an enormous firebox.

    thanks Geoxman, I just ordered that blower.

    Hi Snotrocket, I do not have the hose, but I read on the site somewhere that flexible exhaust hose from the autoparts store would work. I guess I will find out. As for the stove, you are right, it does put off some heat. I am heating a 2400sqft farmhouse with very little insulation. With propane we could only afford to keep the house at 52 degree. With the stove it is well into the 60s and 70s.
