I bought a Taylor Waterstove eight years ago and would recommend it, heats my house, 1764square ft, and my domestic hot water with enough supply to heat a house twice the size of mine

Yes, you can heat both. I have a Hardy and my in-laws all have Heatmores. Both brands have been great. I think the Heatmores are much easier to clean out.

I own a Woodmaster, and it has been a great OWB. But a friend of mine recently bought a Hoss, and I was pretty darn impressed with it. It has a unique design for unloading the ashes, and double welded like the Portage and Main. Very nice stoves.

I would recommend a Central Boiler, very happy with mine over 5 seasons. I heat my home and water with it for about 6 months a year here in central Wisconsin. You can for sure heat your home and an out building with one along with your water. Being in southern Illinois your heating season will be a lot shorter than where I live. Talk to your dealer, he will look at the square footage you are trying to heat and size it for you. My advise is that if you are on the line between furnace size, go with the larger.

Buy any reputable brand you like just make sure Its big enough.My 1st stove held 150 gallons. After 16 years I bought a new one it holds 400 gallons And It uses roughly the same amount of wood that extra capacity in liquid made all the difference.

I have the smallest size Central boiler makes and I can run 2 pumps (buildings) off of it, the bigger ones a guy can run 3 pumps I believe off of them.
I ran wall heat exchange panels and put shutoff valves so I can run up to 3 when it's cold or just 1 or 2 and bypass the rest when it's warmer!

If you have the room in the shed I would recommend putting it inside to capture the radiant heat a boiler will give off. I have a Royall boiler made by Horstmann Ind. right here in Wisconsin in my garage. In fall I stack about 4 cord inside at start of winter and replenish as needed. My wife and daughter fire when I am not home, doubt they would do that if they had to go outside. Radiant heat keeps the 24x30 garage about 35 or warmer with an auxiliary heater I can turn on if really cold.

Here is how it looks:

Look for a used stove. There are mid range central boilers for sale on craigslist for 3-4K
I had 10 grand or so in mine new. Been going strong for 6 or 7 years. Burns 10 cord or so of wood

lookin at 8 to$ 10,000, that's why I bought a FIRECHIEF outside stove it is a forced air unit I haD $3700 in it 2 years ago, the way I look at I still save a boat load of money and don't worry about water pumps , water levels , boilovers , I just filler up and have warm air through my regular duct work.
