German House Rebuild


My buddy Mat's parents thew out an old wood burner. It used to have a big ceramic tile cover thing around it. We call them Kachel ovens. Not sure in English. I'm going to surround with with brick and cement stones. This should keep me very toasty. Here's a pic of the stove laying sideways on the dolly and one of the tiles. dorf dude...

I think it is the same name worldwide Shu. Fine Homebuilding had a great article on these guys about 20 years back.

My plan is for a large thermal mass to absorb the heat. It will not be always burning. A hot quick burn then the thermal mass can release it's heat slowly. We'll see once it's up and running! I couldn't beat the price, FREE. Side note, the Door Dude stood me up tonight but at least he called and is supposed to come tomorrow. I need to close this thing up. dorf dude...

Yep, that's exactly how they are supposed to burn. There's an outfit back east in Canada, maybe Nova Scotia I think, who are building these things now. Prices start at $15,000 and go up from there.

I figured I better test burn the stove before putting it in. There is 1 plate for inside I'm not sure where it goes. I will be in contact with the manufacturer tomorrow about that. The stove seems to burn ok, even with a short pipe stuck on top. Putting off lots of heat. Dorf dude...

Nope, the tent is fire retardant and I will direct the chimney away with the prevailing winds.

Campbell brought over his new toy tonight. The mud sanding will be done in no time with this monster! He will put a 2nd coat on tomorrow. I've left heat on overnight for a nice warm room to work in. I weighed the propane tank and will see how much it actually uses in 12 hours. More pics tomorrow. dorf dude...

Cool! Don't you just love freebies? I'm not one to dumpster dive, but I do hit the thrift stores occasionally. There are deals out there if you are willing to be patient and look through a lot of junk to find the jewel.

Nice that you are re-using that old heater!

Yesterday Campbell got the final mud on 2/3's of the sheet rock. I got the first coat of paint on it today. I've been burning the propane heater but the humidity is quite high because of of this. I can't wait to get the wood burner in. I hope to have the 2nd coat done tomorrow. Here's a quick pic. dorf dude...

Mat came over and gave me a hand with the 2nd coat of paint, Thanks . That saved a lot of time for sure. The 2nd coat didn't look so good at first but as it dried, wow. Mia had to get in on the action too! She wanted paint on her like the rest of us. Here are a couple pic's. dorf dude...

That metal plate likely fits on a little shelf or tabs just below the flue outlet above the fire. They fit in very loose usually - probably because of metal expansion they are built that way.

Filling up fast. Mat and I moved 3 loads today. I have so much stuff. Major problem tough. I have condensation. Time to shut down the propane. I'm not sure if it is because of all the mudding, painting and burning of propane or wrong choice of plastic for a vapor barrier. I think I screwed up with the vapor barrier. Retro fit in the future. I'm thinking Stryrodor, hard foam on the outside. That should eliminate the cold bridge. Any thoughts? I'm open for ideas. I'm just glad to be getting things moved out of the rented shop. I don't need to heat this winter because I still have enough work inside the house to keep me busy until next Spring. Here's a pic of the tent filling up. dorf dude...
