Spruce bunny.
We are putting an indoor boiler in our new cabin we are building.
It is a thermo-control. They are out of New York.
Check them out.
They have a large water jacket in them also.
Might be of interest to you.

Thanks, Stoneyacres. Those look good. Price is good, too.

 Spruce bunny,
Did you ever end up buying a boiler?
If so what kind.
I haven't bought mine yet either.
Still in the works.
Money tree hasn't bloomed yet.  :D

I haven't bought one either. It's a lot of money to save a little labor and a little wood. I could buy several seasons of fuel oil for that money and run the radiant system that's already in place.

sprucebunny, If you have grates just below an outside window, Up against the wall. The cold air will sink down to the stove and hot air will go up in the house. I have one big grate in the middle of the house.  If you want to pull hot air around the house, put grates under the windows where you want heat. No fans.
As long as the lower level is somewhat open.
But with a [woodstove room] This might not work.

I see a lot of used Therm-control boilers for sale on CL.I don't know the reason they are for for sale,but it would make me wary.Perhaps ,as was mentioned earlier,they are creosote factories.I know you are thinking boiler,but I have a Hearthstone Mansfield stove that heats our house very evenly.I picked ours up for $1500.00,used of course.It's a good time of year to be looking.
