I grew up with a wood stove in the basement. It was a homemade monster made from 1/4" plate. I would put out a ton of heat and did just fine heatingthe house. But the temperature swings were annoying it used a lot of wood and it was our primary heat source. After that I said I would never rely on wood heat again. 25 years later and I have my own place and it came with a hearthstone soapstone stove. After a season of using it I was amazed. The heat was even no crazy temp swings and it is effecient. I can fill it every 10 hours and it's good to go. It has been our primary heat source for the last 6 winters. I would highly recommend one.
