First live run

I just ran my first live run with my wood boiler, and it is working great. I was able to heat up my house (it actually got too hot, because it is not very cold). And I was able to heat my hot water tank. Also my automated controls worked flawlessly turning the burn on and off as needed, to keep the water temperature perfect, and making the wood last longer. I even shut the boiler down for about 15 hours, and it was able to fire up on its own without lighting it. I have made a couple videos.

    I do plan on drawing some plans up, but first I want to make sure I have everything how I want it.  I have had to make a few changes since I started, but I think I am alomst there.
