Outdoor wood furnace (do you have one)?

Anyone using an outdoor wood furnace for their primary heat source?

I have been researching this option, and want to know if anyone else is is using one. Our current heat source is a 90+ propane furnace. Outside of the initial cost of the wood furnace I feel I can reduce our heating bill significantly. Not to mention also getting free water.

Since moving in to our new house I have cut about 3 and a half rick of wood already, and have another 2 rick available to be cut from my neighbor. Cutting wood is not a problem, as I have access to 190 acres. Of the 3 and a half rick I cut I had to split about 2 rick of it. All by hand. A wood splitter would be nice, but that's another topic.

As for furnace brand, I am leaning towards a Hardy Heater.

Outdoor Furance

I have an outdoor furance and heat my house with it. Before we used strictly propane. This will be my third season. I have a Central Boiler unit and love it. They make different sizes for the square footage of a home or shop. I have relatives who have used the hardy heater for years; but I went with the Central Boiler; because of the sizes, looks and easier to clean the ashes out. Check them out on Centralboiler.com
Good luck on a decision. They also have several colors of metal to choose from and CAMO is one of them.
