I have a two story 16x24 cabin which is roughly 750 sq feet. I have two stoves and need to decide which one to place in. The first is a the small stove a Timberline about 16" wide and 26" height (outside measurements) with some nice brick in it. The second is a a larger Earth stove, I don't have exact measurements but I'm guessing the box is twice the size, probably 28" wide and although the same height as the other stove there is more room in the fire box. I like the looks of the Timberline better as it looks like a better built (real heavy) stove but I wonder if I should install the larger stove. I will mostly use the cabin in the warmer months but I would like the option of using it some in the winter and the stove is the only source of heat in the cabin. Any thoughts would be appreciated, as has been the continued advise on the stove pipe on this thread.
Cabin near Sterling so Alaska mild weather.
