Several years ago I picked-up a close-out model Vermont Casting Pinnacle gas stove on Ebay for about half of list price. It sat in a corner of my city home awaiting the cabin build and the first winter heating season. It's a Direct Vent type, using 4" by 6-5/8" concentric duct pipe for both exhaust and combustion air. So no interior fumes, or cabin air consumption. I decided on a wall flue exit, more simple and I always avoid roof breaches when ever practical. Since I have my own supply of natural gas from wells on the property, I'm using this no-cost fuel, but it came with an LP conversion kit also. I believe it's rated at 35,000 btu's on full blast, but after it rather quickly heats-up the cabin, I switch it to the remote control and auto mode which allows it to be set at a lower flame and nearly silent fan level. The remote also controls the thermostat which throttles the flame on & off according to the user set temperature, where ever you move the remote. So far I'm super-pleased with the quality, features and cabin application. Attached are a couple of photos, the ecco-fan is mostly for visual effect, the stove doesn't really need help dissapating the heat.
