A Russian stove, in which the masonry above the fire absorbs heat and radiates it into the home, can warm the entire house on most winter days. It also provides a striking centerpiece to the main floor.

A Russian stove, (in Colorado) the masonry above the fire absorbs heat and radiates it into the home, can warm the entire house on most winter days. It also provides a striking centerpiece to the main floor.

Great for a wood burning stove for heat! Love the stone around it.

This is not a true kackelofen or masonry heater, but the massive group of stones surrounding the woodstove demonstrates how masonry contributes radiant heat. A cool example.
