Comments: I have had it running now for a couple of weeks. It seems to be just right for my house.
The house is well insulated and temps are steady between 21C-23C with the draft closed,
except during start of each cycle (when it is wide open until new load is charred aproximately 30min).
The temps outside so far have been between +5C to -5C.
Burn times 9-10hrs stove surface temps at end of cycle are between 150 and 200 Celsius.
It will hold coals for long time and I have started a cycle after 14hrs, without adding kindling,
but the stove surface was just warm at that point.
