    Heat rises. I'm concocting a plan to duct the heat from the ridge pole area back down to the 1st floor bathroom.

    How many sf is your stove rated for?

    I'm curious if I should plan for a smaller stove due to the efficiency og these cabins.

    You beat me to it Thoner!

    . If a wood stove on the first floor of a home can roast you out then wouldn't it be reasonable to heating both floors with a wood stove in the garage?

    we're planning a Blaze King princess model for our 35x35 cabin
    I'd rather have to open a window or two than wish we'd gone bigger

    Blaze King Princess - rated for 1200 to 2500 sq ft
    YMMV - I think Blaze King stoves are the best made.

    It would heat both floors of a garage easily.

    Exactly. My thoughts to a tee.

    Ok so you went pretty big.

    I just picked up a nice Vermont castings catalytic stove on the side of the road the other day. Rated for 1400 sf. Not sure if it will work for my 40x40. I also got a nice soap Stone stove for free a few years ago when I remodeled a House, that's rated for 1200 sf tho

    Has anyone used pex radiant in both the basement floor and main floor??? Is that over kill??? Also in NC........would I really need to radiant heat the basement floor?? I don't believe the frost ever goes deeper than a foot. Just wondering.

    With the use of a wood fired boiler or furnace with a water jacket (http://www.atmos.eu/en/combi-boilers...r-heating-oil/) to be used for radiant floor heating and DHW. How many zones and size of the zones can determine the boiler or hot water heater size?And temperature requirements? Water tank is required for these systems? Can antifreeze mix be used so that the system could be shut off?

    My understanding is that it is a bad idea due to condensation. Below air temp liquid running though the floor causes condensation.
    Another option: http://www.mb-soft.com/solar/intake.html
    I know nothing about it just came across it sometime and saved it
