Is there anyway to make these look beautiful and commercial enough to trick the suburbanites into switching over from normal wood burning to rocket stoves? I live in Michigan and know many people that heat their houses from wood burning stoves. I love the cob and natural look that is normally applied to these rocket stoves but is there a way to make the pretty?

Hi Collin; You build with rock & cob and then you can cover it with whatever pleases your eye. Cedar board bench, exotic hardwood ... red brick... flagstone ...heck sheetrock if you like it !
