As such it is often possible to get a building permit for a home with a "Masonry Heater" Though acceptance varies widely from place to place.
Usually if a Dwelling gets an occupancy permit the insurers will usually fall into line ! Regular wood stoves installed to code are
generally easier to gain acceptance .
Hope this answers your question and is useful, for the good of the crafts ! Big AL
