rule of thumb

Hi there,
Anybody have a rule of thumb for the amount of wood needed for a woodstove? We will be using it from about October to April......two people in the house both working full time, monday - friday days.........
Thanks in advance!

Unhappy Too many varibles

Size of house ?
How warm do you like it ?
How efficient s the woodstove ?
Type of wood you are burning ?
How well does air circualte to the rest of the house ?
How cold wil it be next winter ?
It's kind of like asking you how much my gas bill will be next winter LOL
Maybe ask somebody that lives nearby with a smimliar house how much wood they used, that would at least get you a starting point.
