This handmade wood burning stove/furnace came from my cottage in Canada. It was designed and built by a welding engineer who used it for his primary source of heat in his home (subsequently my cottage). Essentially it is a box inside a box, made of 1/4" plate steel that is firebrick lined in the heat chamber (inside box); has an externally mounted thermostat that signals an electric fan that blows ambient air into the area between both boxes and out the rear of the unit, which then can be pumped into ductwork to any desired location. The fan has a temperature range setting of 100 to 160 degrees. The door of this unit, although not depicted in these photos (removed for travel), has a slotted back side that contains a heat-resistant graphite rope gasket that seals the door when in the closed position. The fan and misc connecting duct pieces are also not shown in the photos. Further, there is a heavy duty gate valve welded to the bottom floor of the heat chamber that allows outside fresh air into it.
Although somewhat crude in appearance, there was a lot of thought and skill put into the design and construction of this furnace and it works "like a dream". From my estimation, it will heat "comfortably" an area of 1000 sq. ft. The firebox chamber takes 18" long logs and it can be jam-packed full to last 7-8 hours without a re-fill of additional wood. It was built to last (probably weighs 350-500 lbs) and measures approx 30" high, 20" wide and 24" deep. The ultimate buyer won't be disappointed.
