Small stoves = constant loading.
I have lived with wood heat most of my life. If your serious about using wood heat, buy as big of stove as will fit, and build smaller fires in it if you need to.
A small stove will only take small wood. Small wood burns up quick. You will hate getting up 3 or 4 times in the night to reload the stove.
Also cutting wood into tiny pieces gets old real fast.
A large stove can take large pieces of wood. Large wood burns longer, and takes less time and resources to cut. Large stoves can still have small fires built in them.
I need to start a wood stove thread.
