I bought a stove! After your guys input I wanted something smaller.
Here it is: GreenThunder Conversion by mccolgan4731 | Photobucket
Got it for 80 bucks on CL. As you can see from the pictures (tell me if the link doesnt work this is my first time using photobucket) the main cylindrical burner section of it is about 9.5" in diameter and 7.5" tall it then has a shallow area above the main cylinder part that is an additional 3-4" above the cylinder part.
I am still not that close to installing it.. I need to finish my floor. Plan on having the floor finished next weekend Oct 21-23. I might have my cousin who helped me weld new sheet metal on the floor build me a steel stand for this stove.
Here are some concerns I have..
1) Do you guys think this stove will be warm enough? Cant wait for the temps to drop to fire it up.
2) If I take the legs off this stove and mount it roughly 2 feet in the air will just the top half of the bus get warm or will the heat disperse to the floor nicely?
3) I picked up a DuraVent DuraPlus triple walled chimney pipe 36" long on CL brand new in the box for $30!! (usually about $130 at home depot) This pipe has a 6inch inner diameter. Will I be able to use 6" stove pipe with this stove or is that too wide? I know nothing about how chimney pipe diameter would effect the draw on a small stove like this.
