Dick Hill's Masonry Stove
Dick Hill has an apartment in his house that is rented to graduate students. He wanted to upcycle an old fireplace from an inefficient energy hog into a system that would actually heat the space.
This is the result; a 4,000 pound masonry stove that was built on site by local mason Chris Manlove.
It was allowed to air cure for four weeks prior to firing. The installation also integrates a new stainless steel chimney flue liner.
