We are building a mass heater in the corner of a lean to keep newborn lambs and pigs warm.

Installing the flue on an angle across a corner of the shelter will give us a triangle between 3 and 4 feet on each side, 27 to 64 sq in.

Has anyone had any experience making >wide< mass heaters on a single horizontal duct?
If so how far, each side, of the duct were you able to go. 

Thanks for helping
 
The harder you work, the luckier you get. This tiny ad brings luck - just not good luck or bad luck.
