Good day all, Quick question for the engineer or weekend tinkerer types. What is the ideal cubic foot size for a wood burning stove built on the Scandinavian design? Simple box type with a smoke shelf with primary and secondary air. my flue will be triple wall type going straight up from the first floor through a chase built into the upstairs closet and out the roof 3 feet above the ridge of the house. It will be 26 feet tall so there should be plenty of draft to extract the gasses. I will be building a larger stove to hold fire through the night bit o don't want to make it too big and have to deal with backpuffing or smoking the house up when I add firewood or stoke the fire.
Everybody's invited. Except this tiny ad:
