Some pictures to share. Two-story 45×42 heater with single firebox at the lower level and white bake oven on the second floor. the oven has direct firing option. Facing with locally-made reclaimed clay brick.
We built this heater in the fall 2011. The heater has means of controlling heat output at each story from 100% on the lower level to 60% on the upper level / 40% on the lower. This heater heats very-well insulated house with 900ft2 on each story. The bake oven reportedly gets to 350-370F from one large firing a day. I do not have temps of the ovenÂ reported with two large fires yet, but suspect that it will be at baking temps.
We built three similar heaters in the last 1.5 years. A nice option for well-insulated homes. Much lower cost than two stacked heaters and less work hauling wood around.
