Wood heater with oven!

We are looking at maybe getting a fireplace (in the open living area of the house that we build) that also has an oven and hot plate, so that in winter when the fire is going, we will be able to pop a casserole in the oven to cook during the day, or cook homemade pizzas when people come over, and keep a kettle on top for cuppas all day long... heh heh.
I am so excited about it! It will remind me of the woodstove we had as our only stove/oven in the kitchen when I was growing up... only we will also have a normal oven and stove in the kitchen of our new house... so no pressure to light it every day, just in winter when it's cold, or for fun if we feel like pizzas!

We can also opt to run our hot water through the back of the fireplace as a winter backup to a solar panel on the roof, so we are currently looking into that too. It's just a matter of being able to afford it all up front... it would be great if we could, as it will save so much on gas/electricity bills in the future.


  1. I would love one of these. I will light it every time I come to visit

  2. Wow Ruth, that would be awesome!! How exciting it all must be planning the new house :-D
