We live in a straw bale house in Eastern Ontario. We use a mansonary stove to heat the two story house. We have a few too many windows and go through about 3 cords of hardwood a year. I have my Studio/bunkie about 1/2 done. As in the roof and slab floor. Next summer let it be done!! I will be putting in a rocket stove. It is a round structure and will also be strawbale. I am so looking forward to burning less than 1/2 a cord! I was going to put some tubing through the floor, not sure if it is going to be radient hot water/glycol or just hot air. Still thinking.
