You might research TENT STOVES online...

There's a 3 dog stove from that's pretty appealing. Read the specs here... They're talking about heating a tent at negative 30°

You'll see a lot of tent stoves for extreme cold climates.

Just figured out how to get more residual heat....

Was compelled to live just outside Portland, ME when I was a teen. Once I graduated high school I went back home to the south. Shoveling snow bites. Dues paid in full.

Besides moving south to avoid the frozen tundra, my folks used a Fuego stove. I know they're built in different sizes. From what I remember, the Fuego was one of the most efficient wood burning stoves on the market back then. Hope this helps.

Hello there Alexamae!

I saw your reply on the 'HGTV' thread and thought I'd pop over to say Hi. I am currently looking to move from my community college to a four year school to finish up a degree in Asian History/Culture and Art History so that I can eventually teach at a college level. I'm happy to see a fellow potentially bus-dwelling Academic!
