How to build a masonry stove out of recycled paving slabs. In this article you will find instructions to build a stove out of recycled paving slabs that also has an oven. Built for a strawbale home in Scotland, the owner chose this stove because a strawbale home is super insulated and he feared any other heat source would be too much.
This type of stove also had the benefit of being able to take bigger logs than a wood stove so he was able to supply the wood for it using his bow saw. The way a masonry stove works is that the stone the stove is built from absorbs heat from the fire and then radiates it into the room for up to 18 hours. To keep it heating continuously you only need one log per hour once the stove has fully heated up.
All the instructions are provided for building this stove with a lot of pictures of the different processes. There is even a picture of all the slabs after they were cut to build the stove. I love the way the stove is painted and looks very quaint and homey, it makes the room look very inviting and cozy. Steve James & Eli Benedetti shared the instructions on PermaCulture UK. I this would be a great way of heating a cabin or other off grid dwelling.
