i plane on getting a none cataleptic stove with the secondary burn air intake pipes so i will burn small hot fires. (i dont know what one yet but i can get this one easy for a not bad pricehttp://www.lennoxhearthproducts.com/products/stoves/striker-s160/ )
1the first idea i have if since i know i need to add mass to my stove and i also know by doing this i can overheat the stove. is can i add a hollow metal base under the fire place filled with massons sand and rebars welded to the bottom of the stove sticking into the sand? do you see any problems with overheating?
2 can i do the same thing for the back and chimney of the stove without overheating it? will the sand (or i can use cement or some other mass) soak up the heat or will it insulate it and make the stove overheat.
3 what if i buy a stove way bigger then i need and add more mass inside the stove?
hey thnx for the reply. i have done more research and found this http://geopathfinder.com/9597.html im gona copy his idea but make it about 1/3 the size because the floors where installed in 1948 and there not to cod lol. im also thinking about using an old water tank and pump and robing heat from the stove with a coil and then let it out once the stove is out.

I notice there is ash molded along the bottom of the door to seal the flat slide where that type of stove leaks. I have one [ not using it at this time] that has a small broken piece out of the slide, it gobbled the wood and didn't give much heat for it.
