Julia Winter wrote:I'm with you on the coolness of seeing the fire. This double shoebox design is a lot closer to the masonry heaters I've seen. Are the buff and the pink bricks (in the drawings) both firebricks? [Edit: after following your link above - yes, I think they are both different kinds of firebricks. Maybe the pink ones are more insulative but not as strongly fired as the lighter colored ones? You need the hard-fired bricks for where you load the wood, but can use a different sort of fire brick for the upper fire box.]

Many thanks for any answers, Esbjorn
|And now I present magical permaculture hypno cards. The idea is to give them to people that think all your permaculture babble is crazy talk. And be amazed as they apologize for the past derision, and beg you for your permaculture wisdom. If only there were some sort of consumer based event coming where you could have an excuse to slip them a deck ... richsoil.com/cards|
