Just doing some longer term planning of when I get a gassifier (heavily leaning towards a Garn). I have 3 ideas on where to place the shed. Any ideas and comments appreciated. 1. In the garage. I don't know if I have enough space in the garage for it (would 100sf for boiler and small amount of wood be enough?) but I do have a 8" concrete wall between the garage and main house. The house and garage are all ICF's so very well insulated. Garage is on the SOUTH side of house. Primary winds out of NW. The advantages of this setup; easiest to fire/load, easiest for wife, would give off heat to room, easiest to pipe into the house (no undergound pex). The disadvantages; would use VERY precious limited space in garage(esp in summer), would make wood mess in garage, Smoke stack would be vented near our HRVs (2) air intakes. 2. In a shed on the NORTH end of house in the walk out area off the basement. Our house faces directly west with a slope to the north. This allows a small walkout on the north side of the house. We will have retaining walls on both sides to hold back the dirt. I could build a small concrete "shed" partially submerged into the earth on the NE side of the walkout to contain the boiler and wood. The advantages; Everything outside, close to walkout, easy pex piping to utility room on inside, would be well insulated being partially underground, and this would NOT obstruct anyview or be an eyesore in the back yard of our farm. The disadvantages; NE side placement prone to snow drifting, hardest to get wood to if need more/run out (not near driveway on south side), coldest place in winter to have to go out and load, hardest place to access to daily fire, smoke stack may be too low for good draft? 3. In a shed in back yard on east side of house. Standard 2x6 stick built shed on concrete slab. The advantages; fairly easy to load wood into, fairly easy to fire on a daily basis, best placement for smokestack The disadvantages; eyesore to view to rest of farm, longest underground piping, cold/windy place to daily fire, not real easy to reload/supply, least insulated. Does anyone elst have similar issues? Would love to hear comments and suggestions and other trials and tribulations with your setups.
