Rated 4 out of 5Â by MountainMan Good stove kit
First time using wood stove for heat, decided to get this kit. I installed everything burned off the paint from the barrel then repainted using Rustoleum high heat black paint. Turned out nice. I use this to heat my cabin 270sqft with 13ft high ceilings. Does excellent job at heating. Had a little bit of a learning curve to use this set up. I had to build everything on a small budget to get away from propane and electric space heaters which were killing my wallet. I spent roughly $250 completely installed and heating the cabin. I had same little troubles with drafting that others have mentioned, but, I added another 24inch section of pipe to the top of my stack and bam this thing is perfect now. So if you have issues with it not drafting good try that.

Good overall product. Makes a good amount of heat. I'd recommend getting stove pipe caulking for all flanges and joints to keep smoke from coming out.
The air vents on the door are a little small so I end up cracking the door a little to feed the flame.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by Nick Works but drafting issues like others
Had no issues with the little wood burner I had with draft. Upgraded with this kit and the double barrel adapter cause last year my small stove barley kept my workshop warm. Barrel stove heats great but I too like others have mentioned have to keep the door partially opened to get a good draft. If I close the door the fire burns to a crawl and puts out quite a bit of creosote in my pipes. I extended my pipe up another 60 inches to make sure it wasn't the problem and no results. I am not sure if it's because of having the double barrel that makes a difference or not. Have yet to try it without the top barrel so the top barrel might be causing it also. Besides the drafting issue it is a good little kit.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by mwmurray This product was okay.
This product was okay for the price. This fireplace needs a better dampening system to it, the air flow is not quite sufficient. Does put out good heat for a small shop.
