"well its not exactly a rocket mass heater. there are some very specialized things about the house it is in that allows it to work. in short unless you have a three story house and a 50 foot vertical chimney that design wont work. we do have designs that will work for you in a standard house and you can configure the stove to look any way you want. go to our web site at .
the material on the outside of that stove is clay, straw and lime plaster. the look of the stove is under your control with the exceptions of the internal layout. the stove you are looking at has a few things that we dont do these days because you have to be able to get to certain parts to do yearly cleaning and maintenance.
hope this helps

with its converted fats melts at far higher temps. Erica and i have

like a lime plaster. I do sometimes use real raw tung oil since it
tends to smell better and i put a little bit of lime in my dung
plasters. the lime will lighten up the plaster a little, but thats ok
in the long run the effect you want is the lime converting back to

"Right.  I've been using the traditional recipe of linseed oil and beeswax; do you recommend this over the other?  Rubbing with a glass bottle - nice touch.  I've been using manure in the plaster; the glass bottle would keep my hands from smelling like a barnyard for days after... ;-)"
