The construction articles on these pages illustrate only my own personal experience and are not necessarily proven standards employed by other builders of Finnish style contraflow masonry heaters and wood fired cookstoves.
This site is situated in a small hamlet in the Massif de Megal Haute Loire, about 2 km from the ancient pilgrim road to Santiago de Compostella.
The intention of the articles is to assist the auto constructor of a masonry heater by providing a
basic map of the trade and materials, and illuminating what has traditionally been
a closed, protected, and peripheral profession.
Any feedback, positive or negative, from those who have benefited from these
articles is welcome and will be posted on a linked page from the relevant article.
