    We're setting up a cabin on our property and I plan on installing a wood stove to heat it with. The stove will be a small one with a through-the-wall chimney setup. The property is covered in mostly planted pines, with a few hardwoods. I'd rather not deplete the hardwoods, and the pines are...

    I just finished installing my very first wood stove that I bought from Tractor Supply! I absolutely love it! I cant believe my house was as warm as the hottest day in summer.
