Amen brother! Nothing like having too small a woodstove and having to constantly add more loggs to keep her making heat.
Just for reference...we burn charcoal in the stove, and fully stoked it burns for 4.5 - 5 hours, which indeed means a midnight re-stoking (which is not fun). We've burned wood in it, but it is entirely too small and wasn't really made for burning wood. It is a marine coal & charcoal stove.
(Un?)fortunately we insulated so well that a bigger stove would absolutely roast us out.
(FYI we've seen overnight lows of 12*F.)
Whatever you choose, I use and recommend the Atwood CO alarm, which runs on 2xAA batteries for a year. Shows current CO levels and will store the peak CO level.
Hope this helps--
