I'd recommend fire bricks to line the bottom.

when I was young (hey, it's not THAT long ago) we had this exact stove in the basement...worked well. Not sure what square footage it's rated for, but something is better than nothing!

I'm working up to going off grid so this little one is a supplement to the other one I have. I have a small home but I want heat in the area where my pressure tank, water heater and most of my water pipes are. I am also planning some other ways to retain heat. Having a warm husband means I'll never be cold but don't want the pipes to freeze.

The Rona in Turner Valley used to have a great selection of really nice wood burning stoves, modern art and utilitarian at the same time. I can't find a good link on their website unfortunately.

Zana you may want to consider this one, I am hesitant to suggest something I havnt used myself, but a near by neighbour just bought one last week. They have lived out here since the late 70s/early 80s so have decades of experience heating with wood. Its from Canadian tire, lists for 1000.00 but is on sale for 500.00 (price they paid). They love it.. She tells me she can load in wood up to 24 inches in length, tells me that it burns overnight so she doesn't have to relight in the morning, just reloads the stove. Said its butt ugly but works perfect in this -25c weather we are having, heating her whole home.
It has a thermostat control so it burns the load of wood slowly, and has shields all around it so you cant burn yourself.
That thermostat control feature is usually only found on stoves in the 2000 plus range.

For 500 bucks with the temperature control feature....sounds like a good deal to me.
It is ugly.....but the price is right, not all stores stock them, if interested I could ask them what store they bought it from, they said the price of 500 was a in store price not the price on the Canadian tire web site

When heating with wood stove it is very very important the location of the wood stove and air distribution. Also is super important where you bring fresh
air for the stove air intake. For last 50 years where ever I lived I was heating with wood. Even with small stove you can heat fairly big area if properly installed. The beauty also is that you can cook basic food also on the stove.
