Small Wood Stove

    I am looking to purchase a small wood stove. Hoping perhaps someone would have suggestions on what might be the best choice. I would like something that could be installed and used on an as needed basis, and then taken down and stored or moved until needed again later. I am thinking of primarily using it in a small 200 -300 sq.ft. area of a partially finished basement. I have the idea of venting it out through an existing basement window location. Think this will work? I included a simple illustration to help visualize the application. Thanks.

    Absolutely work. Tractor supply sells a small one. Don’t recall the name. It’s like $240

      Thank you for the reply. I have one on my list from Tractor Supply called an Alpine cylinder stove for $259. Do you think a separate fresh air inlet is needed for a basement install? I may be over thinking it? One other one I was looking at from called the Dwarf has an option for a fresh air inlet (and it got wondering). I like the price of the Tractor Supply one better for sure.

        The only thing I would caution you about would be using enough outside flue to get you to a height for proper draw/ventilation.

    I need to check Tractor Supply more often. I’ve recently found some things I’ve been looking to get that’re much less expensive than anywhere else. I’ve had these on my scamazon list for a while, especially after Texageddon 2021. That was not the time to learn of certain “holes” in the preps, but was one heck of a good lesson.
