Dickinson Marine Newport Stove for Sale

Sold

I’ve been keeping up to date on the world of small homes on your blog for a couple of years. My girlfriend and i moved into our tiny home that we designed and built a year and a half ago in western North Carolina. We used a Dickinson Marine Newport p12000 heater for the beginning of this winter, but I was able to get a great deal on a tiny wood stove and now I am selling my year old Dickinson, flue, rain cap and flue extension.

I am listing it on Ebay, but I know it was hard for me to find the heater at a good deal, so I wanted the readers of your blog to know about it if they were interested. I’ve attached some lousy pictures taken with my computer as i don’t have a digital camera. Thanks for keeping up the great blog.

Here is the Ebay Listing http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=261170014241 Starting price is $450. Thanks for checking out!

    I’ve always liked the look and style of the little heater but from the reviews I’ve read, it’s a mix bag. It seems to work fine with temps consistently above 30 degrees but will struggle mightily in temps below this mark. So I guess it depends on the size of the home but I wonder how much money is spent on an entire winter season on say 150 sq. ft. of space.

    Great-looking green-trim! $450 is a steal for a Dickinson too…..as for wood- it works great as heat too (its how I heat my home) but its messy, a LOT more work (cutting, storing, hauling), and requires frequent tending (ie- middle of the night trips to re-fire). That said, I actually love all these chores as it brings me closer to the process of heating my own dwelling- and for me, the wood (save for chainsaw gas and labor) is free. Good luck with all!

      I’m with you on the wood heating chores. Try using a hand-powered log saw–it adds time to the chore, but it is manageable with a small or tiny house. It is also quiet, does not use gas, is good exercise, and it turns less of the wood into saw dust. I enjoy it, but my not using a chain saw seems to bother some neighbors.

      Woods efficiency is not completely understood until you take into account how many times it heats you up.

      once, while cutting down the tree,
      again, while you cut up the tree,
      again,when you split it,
      again while you stack it
      again when you carry it inside’
      and finally when you burn it.

      How can any other fuel compete with that?

      Yes, Iron Maiden’s Bruce Dickinson quit touring the world and realized the big bucks are really in micro-heating units…lol….

    I don’t need the heater, but I wanted to say how adorable your tiny house is! I wish you would send more shots of the inside and outside for us to see. Love the green accent.

    Thanks for the complements Deek and Marsha. We love living in our tiny home and I will send some more pictures to tinyhouseblog soon.

    Freth, we have the Morso 1410 wood stove. It is certainly more heat than we need, but in the past few weeks since it has been installed (during which we’ve had 15 degree nights) we’ve had great success burning for a an hour here and there and keeping the house very comfortable. The morso was much easier to get our hands on, and it has fire bricks on the sides and top which improve efficiency and retain heat for hours after firing. Luckily we had a extra corner (sometimes occupied by a table) in which the stove fits according to all recommended clearances.

    Urei, we liked, but not loved the Newport. It is very good looking and fuel efficient. It does seem to lose a decent amount of BTU’s through the flue and in our house (18×8 with a loft, single pane windows, situated in the windy mountains) it had trouble keeping us warm below 30 degrees. I think this could be accommodated for with better windows, and better location (ours was positioned in a way which heated the loft very well, but left some corners cold.)

    I’ve been looking for a P12000 and bid on yours. My small one room home is ~500 ft2, and I think it’d work fine here in Florida. I’ve used a old pot bellied wood stove for heat the past two winters and it’s not efficient, but sure is nostalgic! Perhaps a new wood stove would be more efficient, but I’m getting older and a bit lazy about finding and chopping wood…the P12000 would be perfect. And as a fan of tiny homes, I’m looking forward to another article with interior photos …

    I would love to have that stove in my boat and maybe our cabin. Our current stove takes up lots of room. How many sf is it rated to?

    Anything marine is good in my book. Better to buy once than replacing cheap things all the time!

    Fulton, I’ll likely be moving to Raleigh in the near future. How feasible is placing a tiny house in NC? It’s tricky out in CO…you can store them in the backyard in a city but can’t “camp” in them.
