    this is what I use to heat my house, 13 years old and going strong. beats buying propane. made in Canada by the amish weighs about 750 lbs, bought it from lehmans in kidron Ohio, and paid for itself many times over, we have a propane stove but in the winter we use this for baking and cooking as well. kind of nice on a cold day to warn up too and not worry about the cost of keeping the house at 74 degrees.

    Is it mounted on something poured or a slab like soap stone? That a true beauty!

    That is great. I had some friends growing up who had one similar in their house. They would burn dried corn cobs along with wood all winter.

    Nice! I always wanted one of those but they aren't even legal to bring into Washington State. Still trying to decide if it's worth the trouble to get in another state and bring it in myself if I ever did build a house...

    I use fire proof pads and stone tile under it, never gets hot though. Water tank and oven are stainless, tank holds 12 gallons. Made to feed a big family. I use about 6 or 8 face cord of hardwood a year, good luck.

    Thanks, never asked about the rules, figured if its good enough for my amish neibors, its good enough for me. I live in the country. Seems like i drove there to pick it up. Good luck.

    I love wood cookstoves, we have one in each of our houses. I've seen your brand in some Amish houses, they seem really nice. Nice to see someone else that has one they use.

    I live maybe 40 minutes from Kidron. My Brother-in-law used to live about 1/2 mile from Lehman's and we bought my Wife her car out there in 2007. Nice looking cookstove!

    I have taken alot of kidding over the years for my plain lifestyle, but when the powers out my kids seem to find a warm couch near the stove.

    We get our wood from a railroad tie company here in town. Before they treat the ties they trim the ends. We get our kindling from cabinet makers. I costs us about $150 this year for wood that heats our house, cooks our food, and heats most of our water.

    I haven't fired up my cookstove at all yet this winter. My son has his drum set right in front of it and a very shy rescue dog has taken up residence behind it. LOL. I miss being able to use my stove. Next substantial power outage, the drums and dog may find themselves out in the unheated garage but I don't want to loose my covered parking space either! Smh

    There you go, sounds like a good system. I build tables, cabinets and other woodworking projects, never lack for kindling. Good luck.

    Your dog might like to curl up to a warm stove, as for the drums in the house, might be worth trading for a parking space. Good luck.

    This is my wood cook stove, restored .
    Originally built in the 1860s by AUTO
    Excuse the mess i'm doing some work on the house at the time.
    I burn any thing that will burn, and the oven achieves 400 degrees so I can cook about any thing i want.
    My daughter learned to cook on this stove almost 30 years ago. time fly's.
    I have a modification plan adding a convection aspect to the oven ,beyond the propane gas adaptation's and other mods done in its rebuilding.
    For heating I do my fires in the ash box there by allowing larger wood and exposing more flame to the surface areas, but during wormer times the tilt grate goes in place and I operate my fires from there .
    I can during the summer set i the gas burner out of a barbecue and run it on propane, lousy for heating, great for cooking.
    I have plans to add water heating to it as well , still waiting to find certain components necessary.

    Looks like it has be taken good care of. Nice size oven. Lehmans sells a stainless loop that fits in some stoves for heating water, i have one in mine. Seems like it was priced right.

    I never thought about that. Do states like WA and OR not allow cookstoves since they don't meet emissions standards?

    Yes, we can buy and install new stoves but the choices are limited as the rules are pretty strict concerning the emissions.

    The size of the firebox was the main reason for me as well, takes a good size chunk of wood. And i can load it up for a longer burn.

    Here's a picture of the stove we have in town. We have a Heartland Oval at our farm, we are going to sell it, it's too big for the cabin.

    We visited our friends in Norway and they have one like that one in the photo. We needed something without a back otherwise e would have overheated our kitchen. I am setting by it now, nice and toasty. We're going to make popcorn and watch the movie Max Manus man of war.

    Wow. Looks like a Cadillac compared to the one I have. It did the job though, and turned out great bread(pic from 81, out of the campsite, into the cabin)

    @RickS What is the brand and model of that stove, if you don't mind? Looks great in the space, didn't know it was even an option in towns.

    Sopkainc.com. We bought a Magnum for our house. The city didn't have a problem with it(so far!), the insurance company said as long as we had it installed by a professional it was fine.
