    I bought a house a couple of years ago with a wood furnace in the garage. I have used it once and probably won't use it again. What would it be worth?

    At that age, maybe not much more than scrap steel value

    It doesn't look like it was used much it is probably worth a few hundred. By the way there is not much of anything that meets minimum code about that install

    Yes, the pictures help. If the firebox inside is in as good shape then it may make someone a decent shop heater, so I would say $250-350 is fair.

    Yeah that's probably about it though...would be worth that much to me to leave it installed as a heater in its existing shop...with some clearance/install tweaks as needed...some insulation in the building would make the furnace a lot more effective too...

    Installed in a garage like that it would not have passed inspection on sale here.
