Hi Jason, my advice would be to post a few more details about your cabin. This will give the other members of the forum a better frame of reference for giving advice. I see that you are in BC, but details like your climate, elevation, and orientation of your cabin to the sun, number of windows etc. all come into account when working out how to best heat any building. Also how is your cabin constructed? is it insulated? If your goal is to heat the building more efficiently then there are many other options to consider that are less complicated than the one you are proposing. However if you are determined to stick to your plan, I would start with providing more information about your building, good luck!
