I just found this forum and have enjoyed all the great reading. I am building a new house and outbuilding and will be installing an owb. I have read everything I can on as many models as I can find. Close to me there is a central boiler, heatmor and hardy dealer. It seems driving around that I see more hardy heaters than any other brand. I would like to hear peoples opinions on all the brands and hear the good and the bad about them. We are building in the country, and I will not have to worry about smoking out my neighbor's. Also would like a owb that is capable of burning coal as well. Any help would be greatly appreciate. Thanks Mark.
