Well the process of selecting a heating system for the cabin was "thoughtful" to say the least. First it was decided that we did not want to burn wood in "her" cabin #6. Burning wood would be left to "my" original cabin. The source of heat for #6 would be a choice between propane and natural gas. The cost to run in the natural gas line was going to be $1200 plus there would be a meter service charge of $14 per month. Propane would be the fuel and for $200 I could buy a 100 gallon tank. Filling it would cost around $150. I figured that this amount of propane would be fine for the time being spent in the winter.
Looked at some prebuilt cast iron Vermont style stoves with doors and propane ceramic logs. Nice looking but not impressed with heat output and the cost was going to be over $2,000 ! Lowes was the only place that I could find that sold low end stoves (sheetmetal boxes) with log sets. They were nothing to look at and they still wanted over $500. They did also sell ventless fireplace log sets for around $250. These are for people that have a wood fireplace and want to replace burning wood with propane or natural gas.
This would be the route I took. Now all I had to do was build some sort of surround to make it look cool and fit the cabin.
