It is mostly sage tied together, and when lit it creates a good amount of smoke, which in turn will cleanse the house of any negative energy. Talk to the house while doing the smudging, forming a spiritual bond between the family & all the natural materials used to build same. Wave your hand over the smudge stick in, as cracker said,order to get all the nooks & cranny's.

The generation & locaal would boil down to the 1700's--1800---to modern times. The locall would be wherever a Native American might call home. Google it bk, it might enlighten you some.

It's just a very old, very spiritual concept passed down from generation to generation. And yes, I've learned things on the FORUM that I have found real interesting & worth looking into. Later my friend. Aho---that would be Algonquin ;)

bksaun, I would give some serious consideration to either one of the homesteader or portage and main outdoor stoker boilers that can burn you local coal with feed and ash auger or less expensive option is an underfeed will-burt bit stoker installed in a good used EFM 700. There's nothing better than good KY stoker coal.


Berlin, thats exactly what I am looking into for next year, I need to do a lot of reading and learning, I thought the EFM 700 would burn either type of coal.

I would love to have a boiler in an outside building, I just need a little help planning all this and do it right the first time.

The coalman boiler is over $10,000.00 :shock: but I really like the rotating pot. I have thought about pex under the floor for the main floor and a heat exchanger for the second floor, maybe a modine for the basement and garage.

I have a local Hardy boiler dealer that is very nice and offered to custom cut a inlet for a stoker to be added like the homesteader, but that would void the warrenty, he suggested finding a used one.

Are the Homesteader and coalman as efficient as an EFM?

Great looking place BK. I enjoyed a dollop of 12 yr old Pappy and a smidgen of 15 yr old Pappy thursday night. Then something that was distilled from rice that BT is trialing. Note I didn't refer to it as bourbon. Kentucky Sake I guess. Pretty bad offering overall.

MAN OOOH MAN that is my dream place right there!!! ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL property there BK!!! You are a blessed man!! WOWOWOWOW!!! That garage is HUUUUUGE!!!! Could put another house in there! :D

For the same price you could've had a 3,000 sq.ft. house on .00003 acres in Worcester though. :woot: toothy :nana:

MAN!! If that was mine, first thing I'd do is take my ATV across that full bore .... then look into building the biggest still the world has ever seen. That whole building would be my dedicated moonshine operation. I'll dream about this tonight ....

I don't know that the coalman and homesteader are as efficient as the EFM, but I do know that unless you have pea stoker available, you should be looking at the coalman and homesteader - with the 3" auger tube the efm 700 will only handle "pea stoker" coal and not the widely available stoker size. Having said that, if you're purchasing a truckload at a time, a coalyard usually won't have a problem screening out the smaller sizes for you provided they have the screens for a few extra $$. It's really too bad EFM doesn't get off their ass and modify their current 520's to handle larger sizes of coal and add a rotating ring like a 700. There's a hell of a market out there for the business that does it right (and keeps their prices down, mid 5k's max) for a small bit stoker boiler. Anthracite's great, but outside of NEPA there's something to be said for bit stoker/pea stoker that can be supplied for half of what anthracite rice/buck is going for.
