thanks for the reply glenn.
So is the flexing concerns all of the time? Or are the flexing concerns when/if i need to move the tiny house on skids? I figured i would need to dismantle the stove if i needed to move the tiny house.
I can always change the flooring/floor joists to accommodate a heavier stove.
Matt walkers stove seems simple in my mind. It incorporates all of the elements i would want from a stove. I am mostly concerned with it being just to dam big of a stove for such a small space.
Maybe i would be worth it for me to contact him via email.......
Would you happen to know about other small masonry stoves designs i could take a look at? The Vortex stove
seems like too big of a stove. Of course i could always come up with another means of cooking food when it was to warm inside the house. I just imagine cooking beans on the stove for 4 hours would be hot!
