    cool video old trapper! i might just purchase the full length dvd and i guess it would make sense to have this m/h against an exterior wall to make loading of firewood a cleaner job thanks again!

    This is a good idea for those of us who can work fast and hard enough to get it done.
    Every time I have strayed from the teachings of Skip Ellsworth it has cost me money.

    My dad has built a masonry heater in his log cabin from bricks. It is a hybrid: also works as a stove and has a fireplace. Masonry heater is a way to generate heat in every older house in Russia. The typical heater is a multi-purpose structure which also takes quite a bit of a space. Besides the stove, there is a bench (the temperature there is warm enough to have a bed in there). So, in older times families had children or older folks ("babushka's" and "dedushka's") sleeping on heater benches. I used to sleep myself on a bench of a masonry heater -- it is very comfortable and warm, especially in cold weather. Here is how a typical Russian masonry heater/stove looks like:


    LHBA build is a process. Accept it'll take some time, will be more expensive than you thought and enjoy the journey.

    Thanks slamasha, that is soooo cool.

    Thoner, that heater is Tom's own design. He sells complete instructions. Oh yeah, and no I haven't built that one.
