If you go to Jepersen's site (he's a member here too) at http://www.jesperskoolie.tk (you need to click through ad) and click the link to "November" there are some photos of his hearth set up, he hasn't installed the actual fireplace yet (at least not on the site).

Another one that comes to mind is Bonnie Lass at http://www.nickbus.com. The navigation on the site is not good so a direct link to the page with the fireplace is http://www.rachelnation.com/nicksbus/5.html

Yet another is Moss and Pixie's Enchanted Gypsy here: http://www.enchantedgypsy.blogspot.com/ ... chive.html (scroll down)

That's all I can recall at the moment...

Amen brother! Nothing like having too small a woodstove and having to constantly add more loggs to keep her making heat.

Just for reference...we burn charcoal in the stove, and fully stoked it burns for 4.5 - 5 hours, which indeed means a midnight re-stoking (which is not fun). We've burned wood in it, but it is entirely too small and wasn't really made for burning wood. It is a marine coal & charcoal stove.

(Un?)fortunately we insulated so well that a bigger stove would absolutely roast us out.

(FYI we've seen overnight lows of 12*F.)

Whatever you choose, I use and recommend the Atwood CO alarm, which runs on 2xAA batteries for a year. Shows current CO levels and will store the peak CO level.


Hope this helps--
Sean

Re: Wood stoves in skoolies! Got one?

Digging up an old thread.....

Sean, where did you get the 3" flue pipe from? Singe or double wall?

I've been talking with the gentleman over at Fastco stoves. We're about to pull the trigger on the Tiny Tot.

I bought 2 sections of 3" single wall pipe from Dickinson Marine.

At the time, I looked around locally (Flagstaff) and couldn't find any in 3".
