Modular Firetube fireboxes. The upper one serves as an oven.

A cooktop extends off the side of the connecting flue.
Note the damper rod visible between the two grills.

Side exit on lower firebox allows gases to be diverted through a site-built masonry heat exchanger / storage / bench section.

Chimney system from Germany.

Chimney clean out port. A flue gas sampling port is also an option on German systems.

Carboard expansion joint between outer shell and firebrick liner is placed only where it is needed, at the corner.
This is the only spot where you get a push from the thermal linear expansion.
