Woodstove in Box

Holly says that is her favorite appliance. She likes to be warm. That is a woodstove, still in it’s box.

When it arrived Holly said, “It’s soooo tiny!”

Will said, “It’s cute… I hope the insulation works!”

It is a very tiny woodstove, in fact the smallest I could find. This woodstove would fit inside our existing wood furnace that heats our old farm house. In fact, I fit inside our existing wood furnace as I got to demonstrate once when repairing it…

The stove is a Vogelzang. After I’ve opened it up, installed it and used it for a while I’ll report back on how this little baby does. While it may be tiny, it only has a tiny cottage to heat so I’m not worried. Any thing larger would be too big and overheat the place. It does have a a two pot cook top so we can cook on it in addition to our electric cook stove. The backup is greatly appreciated during the winter when we get many power outages.

Outdoors: 37°F/27°F Rain
Farm house: 73°F/53°F 2 logs
Tiny Cottage: 53°F/48°F

    I’ve been looking for a small box stove to serve double duty, both heating my workshop and keeping a kettle of water hot.

    The price on this one is better than I’ve found elsewhere, so I’m lookin’ forward to your review of this “cute” stove.

    I think Holly will be very happy, that is, if everyone else lets her actually use the stove. I’m guessing your cottage may stay warm most days with out lighting it. Funny how so few families seem to be made up of people who have the same idea of what “comfortable room temperature” actually means.

  3. Aye, my goal is a house that naturally maintains itself at a comfortable temperature. Of course, as you say, comfortable varies with the person. Holly says that I am her personal nuclear furnace that keeps her warm on cold winter nights. It is nice to be so compatible. Ironically, it is she, not I, who feels the summer heat first.

    Glad to hear the roof is on. That stove sounds interesting and amazingly inexpensive. I hope you can throttle it down enough for your space.

    Did you ever do a review on this stove, Walter? If so, can you put a link in the main article?

    It’s been quite a few years now, I suspect you know all the ins and outs of the stove by now.

    Also, the link to the stove is now bad – it looks like this might be either the same model, or something close to it?


    • The one we have still works great. It is essentially the fire box of our system. What we did was build thermal mass around it and we tend to run quick hot fires that then store the heat in the building’s masonry. The link you gave looks like ours at roughly 3x the cost.
