We propose a stochastic order parameter model for describing phase coexistence in steady heat conduction near equilibrium. By analyzing the stochastic dynamics with a nonequilibrium adiabatic boundary condition, where total energy is conserved over time, we derive a variational principle that determines thermodynamic properties in nonequilibrium steady states. The resulting variational principle indicates that the temperature of the interface between the ordered region and the disordered region becomes greater (less) than the equilibrium transition temperature i
