Thanks. I know what you mean. :) Its the stone fireplace. I usually crop the pictures close like that because there are always things laying around. Such as tools. This house is an ongoing project, we started renovating 4 years ago and are slowly completing things but the projects are never done. I still had my hammer drill, vise and a bunch of other tools laying to the right of the DS when I took that pic.

I'll try and get a new pic with the area cleaned up a bit better showing the entire fireplace behind it.

Finally got my Russo CW1 installed on my cabin porch..
This was a $30 stove from craigslist.
I have a wood burner in the living room but it never kept the main area of our kitchen and other rooms on opposite side of the cabin warm.
So we closed in the porch area and made it a 4 season room, open the doors and let in the heat.
Now we are getting 73* on the cold side of our cabin, no more propane furnace running while burning the Russo..

This is my latest ALMOST completed project. I still have to add the tempering valve. This is a Montgomery Ward & Company No. 20 boiler paired with a Peerless Partner indirect hot water heater, Model 51195 which has a 77 gallon capacity. I piped it so I can tie the Tarm into the indirect when I get going on that project. That way the Tarm can heat the house and domestic hot water during the heating season and the Monkey Ward can do the hot water in the warm months. I'll still keep the Warm Morning 617-A hooked up for power outages. My oil burner is in the back yard!!!!! I've been using it for over a month now. I wanted to post the pictures way back but I have been working 80 to 90 hour weeks for the last month. I finally got 2 days off!

Boy, you've been busy. How many BTUs do you think you'll get out of the stove? How much coal can it hold? It certainly looks like it will do the job for you. Lisa

BTU's? Not a clue. More than four adults and one tween need for showers, dishes, and laundry (on warm). It takes a long time to heat up 77 gallons but I have to let it go out now and then so it doesn't overheat. No one match club for me. I have streamlined the relight. I don't empty it. I shake it down till I get to the partially burned coal that is alway on top of the ash. It is a lot harder to break up through the rocking grates so you can tell by the feel it is time to stop. I put it about 4 to 5 sheets of newspaper on top of what is leftover, kindling, a few chunks of hardwood. I light that off with a propane torch. Once I'm sure it is going to go I put about 3 or 4 hand fulls of coal on, before the newspaper is even fully burning. Careful not to put on too much because I want it to roar. Leave it alone for at least 15 minutes. I almost alway have dancing ladies. Then I will layer coal in to build up the fire. Once I get it where I want it depending on the water temp, whether I'm going to be home, going to bed whatever, I close the manual damper and air and it will run low for many hours. I try to keep it between 110 and 140 but I don't have it down to a science yet. More like guestimating. I think it starts easier leaving the partially burned coal in place.

I think it will hold about twenty pounds but I never put that much in at once.

The mini boiler was a yard sale leftover I picked up about 5 years ago. When I inquired about it it's owner told to just take it away. Free is good. The indirect was $275 used on Craigslist and it came with controls, brass fittings and a 60 watt circulator. I had to drive 4 hours round trip to get it. Many of the parts and pieces where salvaged off old oil boilers but I had to buy a few bits here and there to get it all together. I don't keep good records. If you figure in gasoline and assorted parts I might have another $200 invested in the project.
