This particular stove has been built into an existing fire place in a stone cottage. The stove does not sit directly against the wall, there is a small ventilation gap between the wall and back of stove to allow warm air to be convected into the room.
It is made from Aluminium Silicate (refractory concrete) and is 34 ins wide, 22 ins in depth and 46 ins high.
The completed stove sits higher again depending on the height of the plinth. It has been tiled in natural stone (Travistine) and weighs approximately one ton.
Traditionally these stoves would be free standing however this stove has been built over an existing fire place on a stone gable wall.
