Hey been looking for a wood cook stove. Every site I have been to they say no legal in WA. Any one know of one that is or maybe where I could look? Thanks
It seems that you can have a cook stove in WA. It must have an oven. I don't have permit in hand so we will see. Spoke with a guy that has been helping with verbiage and he said that they may pass laws on cook stoves but at this time they have not. Will let all know if I get permit in hand.
Apparently what makes a wood cook stove a "COOK" stove is that it has to have an oven.
Adding the cost of every thing to make it legal. Also you need to check with your insurance co. to see what they require. If your house should burn down through no fault of the cook stove or even a wood stove and they find out you had one and didn't let them know they may not pay your claim. Remember their job is to NOT pay out claims.
What we decided to get was a soapstone freestanding wood stove. Lighter weight than a masonry heater and a thermal mass rocket heater.
Again i did not have the funds or the
desire to do a major remodel to hold the extra weight. I think that with the soapstone woodstove that I will be able to cook on top. Most likely not fry but I don't fry a ton of things any way. If need be I can always use a cast iron or soapstone dutch oven on the inside to bake something. I think the soapstone wood stove will make the best use of the woods energy. Love the idea that the heat is stored in the stone.
Also will look at the possibilities of making an outdoor kitchen with a wood cook stove fewer hoops to jump through and lower cost. So there you have it our alternative heat source dilemma solved.
Now on to cutting down trees and planting some to coppice. Oh we got our stove from Buck's Stove Palace in Portland Oregon www.stoves.com The soapstone wood stove is hearthstone heritage model
Great tip on the welders blanket. I am sure with some practice baking inside won't be a problem as long as I take care not to spill inside.
