Hello.
First time posting - time to stop lurking!

I’m looking for internet links for diy masonry stoves, preferably with bells, but a good variety of build options, including flue designs, would be welcome. I’m also looking for links to kits, though I’m not set on using one.

I’ve combed past Permies posts about masonry stoves, and have done a good deal of Internet searching as well, but haven’t found the resources I’m looking for.

My husband is a carpenter and tiler. He’s very capable but not 100% confident about doing super tight masonry work himself. Any insight or pointers on building a tight unit is appreciated.

(I am NOT looking for RMH stove options - that’s just not a good choice for us.)

Hi Catrina;  
Welcome to Permies!

Well I'm the RMH guy but I'll talk with you anyways and I'll try not to push a rmh on you.  But I should...
Masonry stoves.
First it depends where you live.  
Some states require a licensed mason  to build your stove, there would be no legal, insurable , dyi kit.
In other states it is OK.  Plans to build your own are available on line.
Your husband could build one with patience.
Are you hoping to insure a home with a masonry stove?  

I notice you mention building tight.   I assume your concern is venting exhaust indoors?
All masonry stoves are double skinned to assure that all gasses leave the building.
Possibly that might be your issue against an rmh???

I got a buddy who runs a shop installing these for people.  Of course if you're up to it, it can be done DIY.  All the pieces are pre-cut at the factory.  I don't know what your budget is, but here you go.  Tulikivi

Thank you for your welcome, Thomas.

We’re in the process of finding out about permitting and also homeowners insurance.

Your comment about double skinning helps.  Thank you!
