That is one "nostalgic" looking stove Chief. I like it. My Surdiac doesn't have that "flair" I wish it had, to fit my old farmhouse. (To me, mine looks modern or even oriental). But when I bought it 20 yrs ago, I wasn't into the nostalgic theme, like I am these days. How many bags does your stove use a day?
I got coal in my Christmas stocking. (Yey!)

My Godin is an 1840's design, but the stove itself may be only twelve years old. So this is only an antique design. Here are the pics I've already posted up here. Hope the links work.
These Godin are very nice stoves. Nice set up.

I like the expression little chalet from Steve. The stove has lot of character :!:
Did you ask: how many bags....a day :?: In my case I should answer to you :lol:
Here are my loading buckets. The bigger one is full at 12 pounds and for the Vigll, very rare to put 12* for a 12 Hrs period. The smaller one is for the Golden Bride and the mak on the side is for 4 pounds and is about what the stove needs for a 12 hrs period.

Thanks A Ton for the compliments and help guys!!!!

Man there sure are a lot of beautiful stoves posted up here. I have a feeling the ceiling vents won't go through this season although I'm so tempted. Mainly due to the sno-board season with my kids right now, then the warmer weather leading to a host of other things, compounded by my inherent laziness :D Anyway the vents will surely be up before next season starts. I'm thinking one or 2 vents near the stove up into the main living area. the house is a typical bi-level with a vaulted ceiling in the front room and dining room. I also knocked out the walls of the kitchen a few years back, so the half of the house that doesn't have bedrooms upstairs is entirely open. from there the cooling air should hopefully move across this area and fall back down the steps to the lower level and stove. That's what it does now anyway :) It will be heating about 550 square ft X 2 levels. Honestly I'm so curious and hopeful as far as the improvement it could make, I may still do it this year, I'm just running out of time.

It's rated at 38,000 BTU's. Burning at 600 degrees. It uses about 25 lb of nut per day. It's going to warm up this week into the 50's. I've experimented using pea. Pea alone just won't draft enough to be practical, couldn't get the heat I needed out of it. Once I used the pea however, I couldn't resist experimenting with its effects and started mixing it in with nut to smooth things out. (Another great idea I got here) Seems to be working well but I need that draft knob out a lot more.

On a side note, Mrs C really surprised me. I'd call home, ask her the temp on the stove and have her adjust accordingly. Now when I ask about the stove she just texts back the stove temp and what adjustment she made on the draft. Hell she even shook it down a few times without me ever mentioning it. Life Is Good!!!!!!!!!!!! LOL

Other than having to get up 10 minutes earlier on workdays to 'tend stove', this has been such a great experience, You Gotta Love It.

Maybe I'll have a Bin in the yard for next year, otherwise I'll just have it dumped on a tarp. I used bags this year.

Ha. Yeah I think that's fairly common. As far as I know I'm the only one in my house that ever turns the Thermostats down. :)

Liner for what? need a stove model please (if its an antique, you will be making it yourself)... easy peasy mac N cheezy and their are many threads about how to make your own refractory and many other threads about how to make a mold for a newly cast iron firepot or use your existing one as a template for the foundry.

So far I am loving the Kineo antique BB. I bought it last April and so far this year I have just been idling along at around 150°-200°. I have not had the opportunity to see how it does at really cranking out the heat in the dead of winter but I see no reason that it won't be totally awesome. The stove has a suspended firepot so it burns the coal completely with no clinkers to speak of. As William has said many times these stove just keep burning as long as there is fuel in it. I have been waiting for a cold snap to really get a good fire in it to take some new photos. I also wanted to re-work the hearth area but it looks like that project will be put off for another year. The only drawback I can see to this stove is the loading door is only 8" square and is pretty high up the stove. You really need to use a flashlight to see anything in the stove to clean out but other than that, I have not found anything about the stove I don't like.

The inside dimensions of the firebrick is just over 12". It is a small fire pot but my house really isn't that big (1100 sq. feet)

Just saw this direct vent stove on CL and looks to be in good condition and the price looks in-line with condition.

That stove looks very good from that photo. If complete and in good condition it's a deal for an easy restoration.
