    WTF (Way of The Future).

    I guess I won't be going into mass production of the barrel furnace kit I just put together for test cabin #1. Maybe I could scale-down the design to double-barrel soup-can sized furnaces hooked in series.

    That is very cool.

    Our sheep, rabbits, chickens and dog survived shut up in the barn over the last few days--but only due to our constant attention during the sub-zero temps here. Anyone got any old-school (or new-school) ideas on how to keep a barn above 32 degrees so water doesn't freeze? With hay in the loft, I'm uncomfortable with every form of heating device I've come across--and the florescent light we have in there even makes me uncomfortable. If I was at this farming thing full time, I'd try a trench right through the middle of the barn with 50' of concrete blocks buried side-by-side (holes facing each other) about a foot deep and have a fire going on one end of the blocks (20' away from the barn) during these below zero days--the gasifier concept. But no time for breaking the code on stuff like this, though. Ideas?

    Either air-to-air or fluid-to-air heat exchanger. Plenty of options, where you could remotely have a boiler outside or in a secure room, or a sealed gas/oil fired exchanger heater. (gas style is usually exhausted through pvc pipe, to give you some idea how cool the exhaust temps are)

    I forgot a few parameters: cheap, easy to maintain, low tech, easy to install...cheap...

    I think you're asking for the impossible, but Google 'hazardous location heater' and 'explosion proof heater' and see if you can find something to fit your bill.
