Kimberly has kept our house toasty warm and its been down to 21 degrees the coldest so far, but we have a large house and so far so good, we have not even had to run it on high unless we are first starting a fire from a cold stove. We are thinking on getting the Katydid too and using Katydid in the house and moving the Kimberly to the garage as at this time we also have a oil stove in the garage to heat it. I cannot even tell you how much fuel oil we have saved already using Kimberly and the fire is so nice and warm and dry. If you do have a video of Kimberly inside and out we would love to see it. And thank you for everything, we are satisfied customers. And the peace of mind having the Kimberly to keep us warm and to cook on if the grid goes down is very important to us. Kimberly does a wonderful job for us and made us happy happy happy!

For now we live in a modestly sized home (about 1200-1500 sq. ft.) and have been interested in getting a wood stove to provide some additional heat.
In our tiny house research we came across the Kimberly stove and noticed that she had a bigger sister that would fill the need for our home – a lot of heat from a little box.
Well, we were planning to wait a little while to buy, but after talking to Vanessa, we were hooked. The idea that we could install it ourselves with a little help from Roger and Vanessa was very exciting.
Unfortunately (tee hee), when the stove arrived, it was clear that this piece of engineering was more than just that it was art. What this meant was that we were no longer satisfied with where we decided to place it initially. It took us a little longer to get in place, but only because we wanted to give it a setting to match its magnificence…
Since installation, we have had the Katydid running nonstop. The temperature has been consistently well below freezing and primarily between 10 above and 10 below zero. Typically in those situations, our normal furnace cannot keep up and is constantly trying. Not only has this been changed by having our Katydid, but sometimes the furnace has been able to stand down since the Katydid was doing all the heavy lifting. We have had several instances of being almost too warm!
The stove is absolutely perfect. It is gorgeous and well-made. We love it and we love Roger and Vanessa also as they were always available and consistently responsive.

To be quite honest, I had some moments of worry when I fired up the stove for the first time with all my buddies, and my wife present. As you know it was hard to get going, and at first put out very little heat, sort of embarrassing, even my wife was asking why I had spent the money for this unit. However one phone call to you, and the simple fix you suggested brought the stoves performance directly to what you had said it would do.
You may remember that I was using a very inefficient propane heater which was very expensive to run in my man cave, the Kimberly runs forever on a small amount of fuel, and belts out the heat. I also took notice of the dry heat compared to propane, I could not imagine how much moisture would accumulate on a boat with the propane, but the Kimberly dries out the air quite nicely, important in our wet and cold winters here in Seattle.
Thank you once again for your excellent product and customer support, that also is uncommon in today’s business world.
