My name is David,wife Naomi ,we live just west of Jonestown,Pa.17038 on 4.2 acres we call Windy Hill .Our business - Windy Hill Enterprises -lawn & garden equipment service & repair is a mostly block building 30x40 located between 2 mobile homes,inlaws live in a 1987 14x70 that is decent to heat,we live in a 1972 12x60 with additions making it look like a 24x60 rancher,crappy vinyl windows,little to no insulation = hard to heat,shop has good insulation in the ceiling.September 2006 we fired up an outdoor wood eating monster made by mennonites in Danville,Pa.--Oaktree 600,000 btu.,we have been burning about 4 triaxle boom truck loads per year,heating the 3 buildings & hot water for the 2 houses all year. We did enjoy working with wood somewhere in the past 15 yrs we have burnt wood,we are TIRED !!!! off the work just to stay warm,talked to matt/leisurline about the outdoor coal boiler they are working on,We want 1 badly,bank will not finance,sorry matt. I have been reading cooking with coal,wife wants coal cook stove,looked at a columbian today,was a little better than junk,seemed very cheaply made.We would like some input on good brands of coal cook stoves,also might just go with a handfed stove that could ? be used for some cooking,is the Gibralter SCR a good stove,assuming these questions will end up on another thread.Have been following forum several months,lots of good !! info,thanks for your help,i'm not very fast at typing as my keyboard has the alphabet all mixed up.
