My stove did pretty good, though I had to reload it a little at about 4 am (7 hours later). I am still getting used to it I think. We will be down into the 20's this weekend and I plan on really putting it through a test.

Glad I found this thread. I've been wondering about installing a wood stove in my yurt. I'm just afraid of catching the yurt on fire. That would not be good!

It's very unlikely you would set the yurt on fire with the wood stove, ASSUMING you follow basic common sense installation guidelines. Set the stove atop non combustible material that extends a minimum of a foot around the stove's footprint. Keep 18" in front of door for embers to fall out.

Set the stove the recommended setback from combustibles. The plate mounted on your stove will have the numbers. Install a 'rated' double wall pipe through the ring or wall. Make certain the pipe stack is guyed out of anchored. Install an ember arrest or atop the stack. Also a rain cap atop the stack will prevent flooding into the stove. USe fire rated covering. Don't over fire the stove. Etc.

Thanks for the helpful info. Running the pipe through the wall is the part that makes me the most nervous. But, I've seen it done before so I'm sure I can do it too.

It isn't that hard really. Here is where I did it to my yurt:

I like the center location, because it gives a radial dispersion of heat from the stove itself all up the pipe. And I plan a dual purpose stove, or multi,

heating

water, some cooking and

heating

.

There is a wealth of good woodstoves now, more then I ever remembered being.

The centrally paced wood stove just feels right to me. It follows tradition. Well before there were wood stoves in yurts, there must have been fires in the middle. People naturally gather around a fire in circular fashion, whether around camp or in any round shelter. The camaraderie of family and friends relaxing around a fire is one of the roots of happiness.

It hasn't been all that long since people gathered around a tipi fire, and people in Mongolia gather around stoves in their yurts even as we write.
