I like that stove. It's well thought out, useful, and good looking. I don't know how much efficiency I will need in TX, but it never hurts.

For those of us in the Hot Climates, thermal mass can go the opposite way also. Chill the mass down to create the "Thermal Flywheel" for cooling in the heat of the summer.

Thats really a nice setup, If I ever find myself in a cold climate, I know who to look up for "Know How" and information.

That's a good point. When I build my "retirement" home. I'm going to have to use every trick in the book to minimize air conditioning usage. My wife gets migraines when she gets hot.
