Thread: "WANTED" SMALL Wood stove, Very small woodstove, SMALL

    Default "WANTED" SMALL Wood stove, Very small woodstove, SMALL

    I am looking for a small woodstove for a very small building (7'X10')........I would like something more solid than a wall tent stove. Most tent stoves are made to be lightweight. I want something about that size but heavier duty for a fixed installation.


    Ideas.....suggestions.....?????????

    The Vermont Castings 'Aspen' model is that size. I had one for a number of years and found it to be a very good stove.

    Cast iron wood stove for boats might be about right. http://www.marinestove.com/sardineinfo.htm
    Also the little stove made by Jotul could work.

    Build a rocket stove from a five gallon bucket and some concrete. Plans are on youtube.

    I wonder if there is a market in Alaska for someone to produce on a small scale (say 10 units at a time) for a small stove like I am wanting. I am thinking maybe it could be based around 10" well casing, maybe 16" long.

    I would suggest a small gas DV stove, the wood stove chimney will cost more than the stove does.

    They sell a nice small cast iron wood stove for wall tents. I use one in an 8' X 10' wall tent. Ak Tent and Tarp or Sportsman might have one. They are cylindrical with removable legs....

    I was going to suggest something like this http://tallpinesfarm.com/wood/f602cb.html Yotul F 602.
    But I like the looks of the marine stoves for a small space. Although, considering the temps in Ak. I would
    rather have a stove that is a little too big and put in less wood than have a stove that is smaller and
    not be able to add more wood. I guess it also depends on how well the building is insulated and when
    you will be using the stove.

    Here is one I got off of Amazon I paid a total of 53 bucks total to my door step. It works very well and heats up my 10x10 nice in minus temps. Good luck on your search.

    Your wood storage under the stove looks a little out of place????

    I used a piece of steel exhaust flex pipe. Worked really good and needed a kink in stove pipe going up. As for the wood under the stove it is just stored there for now I don't use it in the summer time. It will be moved before I start to use it. I also put some heavy tin foil on the pipe because I thought it might leak but the pipe does not leak.

    The stove would cost more than the cabin!
    Those that are successful in Alaska are those who are flexible, and allow the reality of life in Alaska to shape their dreams, vs. trying to force their dreams on the reality of Alaska.

    If you have a tenuous grasp of reality, Alaska is not for you.

    Yes, that is the problem. The cabin is an emergency shelter. Not intended for regular use.

    I would have AKMud make one for you. Years ago the guys at S&S muffler up in Mountain View used to weld up some small ones that were about a foot square, put out decent heat.
