Hi,
Its time to pull our wood oven and airtite stove and switch to an all in one solution. Can anyone suggest a way to go? We dont have much in the way of internets so I cant spend much time surfing. A few years back we built a couple in the yard for a hot tub but they never worked very well. I remember there were some core kits and the like. Anyways Id like to spend less than $3000 cad and make is so I have to feed the fire a bit less from now on. 2000 sq ft open house 49 parallel.

Thanks in advance!

I emailed over and checked out some stoves. Not sure tgis is right for us. Our house us built in a heavy timber frame and when the ground freezes Im afraid tye shiftung floor will crack tue brickwork.
I am willing to forgoe the stove part for now as long as we can correct our heatung for now. Cob is difficult as we have no dirt, the island is sandstone.

I guess I need an eight inch core and a pebble bench. Looks like nobodys cracked the shippable core yet though.

I thought Matt offers an aluma series J tube, ready to install. Just checked his site and he shows a picture of the aluminum cased core . You may need to write or call him.

I just drove to eagle idaho on the 55 and saw a rocket mass heater  sign next to a place selling stoves. I didnt manage to catch the name of it. About 10 mins west of eagle.

With the house moving in the winter I am afraid the brick design will crack. As its getting cold out quickl I am scrambling this week to come up with the best way to do this. Pictures to follow. Thanks for the help everyone!
 
What could go wrong in a swell place like "The Evil Eye"? Or with this tiny ad?
