Wood Stove Specs for Schoolbus Any Takers?

We're looking to put a small wood stove in for heat/light cooking (tea etc.)
We already have a proper 4 burner stove with oven for major meals.

We are holding off on the stove getting until we know some specs.

We are planning on putting 1/4 ply against the wall, covering that with silicone and then ceramic tile.
Does this sound like a good plan?

How far from the wall(s) and what is proper for underneath?
We have a chunk of bluestone.

Any help would be wonderful.


will post pics soon.

i agree! Never had a stove in a skoolie, but lived in a few houses with wood as the primary heat. Nothing is as great as a stove that is big enough you can load it with enough wood that it'll burn all nite. who wants to get up every couple of hours all night long and feed a micro-stove with wood?
