    I need some help... I am a 23 year old guy who is in the process of clearing my own land and building a log cabin, I am looking for places to buy wood burning stoves and cast iron products to furnish the inside of my cozy home when im complete. Any help is appreciated.

    :) I've used these for more than 30 years - Love 'um!

    (Look on E-Bay, and Amazon.com)

    The only woodstove I've had experience with is the Jotul. They're very frugal with wood and produce a lot of heat. (Expensive too)

    Here's a large American manufacturer I found on-line for ya:

    You posted that in the last few days. I checked it out and quickly left before I "needed" one of everything :)

    There are two sides to a tortilla. No one has figured out which is right.

    TOO COOL!

    I used to buy a lot of cast iron stuff online - ebay and what-not but the shipping is killer. That said you can get some deals. Check out junk stores, garage sales, antique stores, and thrift stores for used stuff, and Lodge for new stuff.

    Are you looking for a wood burning cookstove or wood burning heating stove.

    Do you have any pics of where you are building yoru cabin? Ar you using a kit, or using logs from your own property, your own design, or someone elses? I have always wanted to build my own log cabin; but am thrilled to live in an old log cabin built with trees from the property many decades before I was born.

    I dont have pictures of the property yet, but there is a lake and my only neighbor is my uncle who is about 500 yds away from my property line, I have to log out the property so I will be using the logs right off of my property. It will be about a 2-3 year project depending on finances. As for the stove, I was thinking about a heating stove. I am not too sure how I want to furnish the inside, I really dont want to hook up to gas and want to be somewhat self sufficient. Any Ideas will be helpful

    Check out garage sales and estate sales. Can be lots of great cast iron ware at them.
