Maybe itīs a problem to ship to Mongolia?

I know some Austrian companies, which are getting their goods from China. Most time with delay because the international harbor situations, but if they can switch to train cargo ("Railway Silk roads") its usually better (but more expensive).....

Yes, itís specifically a Mongolian border problem. Thereís only one border crossing for freight whether train or truck. Itís Zamin Ude in Inner Mongolia which is again subject to zero Covid lockdown.

When we import bulky items from China they all go through there. My mountain bike was stuck there for 3 months last year and early this year. Itís a nightmare for basics too, such as food. To paraphrase a saying, ďwhen China sneezes, Mongolia gets pneumonia.Ē

Wood burning stoves installed and operational. Just in time as night time temps are already just around or below freezing.

We plan to add a larger hearth of something non-combustible next week but we love the Mongolian style mini hearth pedestals.

Each German wood burning stove cost about $1300 with all the parts and installation and claims to put out 7kW.

Is this rafter running through the chimney?

No, the rafter is cut and then the cut piece is used as a cross brace to support the cut end to the two neighbour rafters. You can see the cut piece (now a brace) at the top of the metal collar(?). It also gives something for the metal to be screwed to. Thereís another piece of scrap wood at the bottom of the collar. Now hidden.

Thanks for the explanation.

It was my assumption, that you has reduced this one rafter nearly on an "Fake-Status".

No attempt at trickery. Itís a pretty standard construction technique. The installers wanted to cut 2 rafters but I insisted only 1 needed to be cut. In any case, Iím very happy with result. The only thing I donít love is that the stove is about a metre from the wall. That wastes some floor space.

It couldíve been closer to the wall with a vent that goes horizontal but it needs a much more complicated chimney with 2 ninety degree elbows and visible supports outside. The vertical chimney is cleaner visually.

Also it reminds me of a cute steam train which mated with a US post office drop box and this was their child.

Straight pipe for the win. :thumb up:

Carpenters call the cross piece a header. Also what they call falling off a wall. Been there done that a couple times
