This is Chuck's widow, Jenny. He died suddenly last fall, and now I am responsible for getting in all the firewood. Is a rocket stove something I should consider, and if so, which one? We started building a log cabin -- one story 24 ft x 36 ft (864 sq. ft.), but it isn't finished yet. Working on that this summer. My sons and I live here on our remote Alaskan homestead year round, and have to charter a plane to get in materials. Would a rocket stove be something I could do without spending a fortune? If I used a regular wood stove such as a Blaze King, I'd have to purchase it and fly it out anyway, so just wondering if this would cost any more, and if a rocket stove will keep us warm in this climate using less wood. (Less Wood is the key for me) Winter temperatures are often 40 below zero for a few weeks at the time, but average lows are usually around zero. Long winters --- Oct. to April. I have lots of spruce and birch trees. I know I can't get as much wood as my late husband could, so I need to find a way to use as little wood as possible.
Thank you for any advice you can give,
