Welded this up & we've been using this one a few years now. Furnace stores wanted like $7000 for everything and i couldn't get the right size, so i made this boiler for about $1000. The sides & back are surrounded by water, (door is port for incoming air so no real heat loss there) and the thing heats about 15 rooms in cold central Mn. I mostly borrowed ideas from the big kids, let me know if you want details. :)

Saw an article in some back to nature magazine about twenty years ago about something used in scandanavia to heat water to heat houses. The description was sketchy and its been awile, but it was something like this. A masonry fire box and chimney was constructed below ground or in the side of a hill. log walls surrounded a perimeter about three feet from the firebox and a roof was built over everything but the chimney. the the structure was then filled with sand. pipes were run through the sand to carry water. the firebax heated the sand and the sand heateed the water, which was in turn used to heat the house. the whole thing was sunk in the ground and insulated. Now, all things considered, it may be easier to get one of those outdoor furnaces. But if your the sort who has more time than money and scrounging skills, you might be in business.
