This heater was built as part of the Sustainable Shelter Workshop Series at Aprovecho. It completely turned around the residents’ experience of their home in winter time. Their previous propane heater provided a “wet” heat that also didn’t reach the outlying bedrooms causing mold issues. The design is a Cabin Stove with heated bench. The design borrows from both the tradition of masonry cookstoves as well as the modern phenomenon of rocket mass heaters with heated cob benches.
