apologies if this makes you swirl your eyes skywards but I am overwhelmed with all the info here!

I am after your thoughts on the type of wood burning device, stove/rmh etc, that would suit my situation:

It is for inside a 8'x15' wooden cabin (glorified shed made from pallets, lined) with a corrugated bitumen roof (onduline) yet to be lined or insulated in some way.
So flue necessary and fuel input space safe
I grow plenty of stick size wood - willow & hazel mostly
I would like it to heat the cabin quite quickly, staying warm overnight not essential.
A hot plate would be useful
Small - the cabin is a workspace too.
I have a stash of 2" thick storage heater bricks?


I appreciate there is going to be an element of personal preference
thank you for your patience!

If you desire building it yourself, a standard 6" J-tube RMH would do the trick. The footprint is kind of large for that small of space, but the heated bench (could be left off if desired, for a more compact stove) has lots of different uses. And the barrel's top serves as a hot plate, but is kind of high off the floor for most folks -- unless the stove's foundation is sunk into the floor, easily done for suspended wooden floors that are a foot or two off the ground.
 
Ever since I found this suit I've felt strange new needs. And a tiny ad:
