Russian Stove

When you own that piece of land that you return to occasionally. You may wish to construct an off grid dwelling. This is the place to discuss different construction methods, materials, and types. Think straw bale, earth ship, yurt, etc..

Russian Stove

Postby stuartcnz » Sat Aug 20, 2011 12:35 am

In the Russka, by Edward Rutherfurd, he describes a wood stove, used to heat early Russian houses. I can't find that particular passage in the book right now, but when I do, I will put it up here. They just sound so homely and for the coldest of winters too.

Here is a link to a home built, modern version.

This is a youtube clip showing a giant sized Russian stove, but also shows a normal one and how people used to sleep on them.

This video shows a contemporary Russian stove, with the heating fire and separate cooking fire, built in.

Masonry stoves are awesome! If it weren't for the weight I'd build one in my truck.

Along a similar vein is the Rocket Mass Heater, made with Adobe. These are starting to look more practical to me, as they are easier to build yourself, and are probably safer in an earthquake area, without the mass of bricks that Russian Stoves have.

Notice that in the photo below, the thermal mass is formed into seating around the side of part of the room.

If I could figure out a way to do it I would most certainly build a rocket stove in my truck, complete with the bench to put my mattress on.
