My name is Ian Mansfield and I live in Australian in the southern state of Tasmania.

I created this site to display the wood fired boiler I built based on the design of Professor Richard C. Hill.
His paper can be obtained here:  http://www.vtwoodsmoke.org/pdf/hill-79.pdf

The storage tank holds 1,300 liters of treated water which I can heat to a temperature of 96 degrees Celsius.   A separate hydronic circuit removes heat from the tank and circulates it through my home.   I also have provision for heating the domestic water in our home using the stored heat.
