Coming along nicely, Sean! Keep up the good work & photo-documentation. Where did you get the Tiny Tot stove?

Thanks Griff. I found it on ebay about a month ago.
They still make them though (http://www.fatscostoves.com).

Thanks, Sean!

That's the smallest and most suitable wood stove I've seen for my skoolie application. I hadn't planned on a wood stove due to the space it would require (both stove & clearance space), but this makes me start to reconsider!

Thanks again for the link!

Beautiful woodworking job !
Here’s a site with some great little woodstoves suitable for small spaces.
http://www.marinestove.com/index.htm

We bought a little Jotul woodstove for our project , which is a very good stove …but almost wish I picked up a smaller one….

Hey Soused Moose, the Sardine model is a great little unit too, but the price is way out of my league (OK, the Tiny Tot is too, but not so far out). Let's put it this way, the moths in my wallet died from lack of sustenance!

Thanks SM.

The Sardine appeals to me too. I'll get one if the Tiny Tot doesn't work out.

I used the manual at their site (http://www.marinestove.com/manual.htm) as a reference for building the heat shielding.

Thank you for letting me know!

I recommend it for any conversion because it helps keep track of what went where...and why.

Keep us posted on your conversion!

Sean

This weekend we've completed the propane plumbing and installed a window in the bathroom.

Bathroom window -- a marine portlight!


All the details here.

Cheers!
