Yes, central wood heat is a thing of beauty. I never believed I would light so many fires in my lifetime, nor stack so much wood but when the house is cozy and the oil tank is full because we're not using oil, well, it gives me a similar feeling to having a lower deductible health insurance. Lovely, peaceful, warm, good for everyone and not so darn expensive too.
