We built a tiny house in the back yard that my wife uses as an art studio. It has thermost controlled electric heat so I thought it would be nice to have a wood stove. Seeing as the tiny house is a 10' by 12' two story loft, space is at a premium, I searched for the very smallest full featured efficient clean burning wood stove made and bought a Dwarf.
We love this dinky stove. It heats up the studio toasty warm with just a few chunks of wood. While the footprint is only 10 inches by 12 inches, it weighs a hefty 85 pounds with long cast iron legs and an outside air kit. It's rated to burn both coal and wood because the internal parts are are all cast iron and firebrick. Where we live, wood is a waste product someone is always trying to get rid of. So now we get to use free wood to heat the tiny house as well as our main house.
I will suppress my every urge. But not this shameless plug:
