The open concept design of the Backwoods small log cabin is perfect for using a wood stove for heat. Using a good quality wood stove as a space heater can go a long way to help heat log home floor plans directly. Wood stoves unlike a central heating furnace, which supplies heat to the log house through a system of ducts in the house. Using a quality wood stove to heat an efficiently built small log cabin or large log home floor plan is a good way to heat an average-size log home with a single space heater, provided the wood stove is located in the main living area of the space. If you want to heat most or all of your log home floor plan with a good quality wood stove, the wood stove should first be located in the area in which the family spends most of its time. And secondly, there should be ways for the heat to travel and flow to other parts of the house. These are easy conditions to meet and only take a bit of simple planning. You want to put your quality wood stove in the area you spend most of your time. Choosing the right spot for your wood stove may be the most important decision you make. The wood stove should be located in the part of the log home floor plan that you want to be the warmest and the coziest. This is usually in the main floor area or open concept area where the kitchen, living and dining rooms are located and where the family usually spends most of their time. By locating the wood stove in this area, you will be warm and comfortable while you relax and eat meals. If you want to heat the upstairs, you don't want to put the wood stove in the basement. To keep the main living area or open concept area of a log cabin floor plan comfortably warm, the basement would be overheated, and this, in turn, will waste fuel, and the frequent high firing can damage the wood stove. Unfinished basements are typically bad locations for wood stoves because too much of the heat is absorbed into the walls and lost to the outside.
