Our custom built freestanding Soapstone Heater, called the Cottage Heater, is a great option for a smaller home of 1,000-1,200 square feet, or for space heating in a larger home. This unit is entirely handmade using firebrick and cast refractory components for the core and soapstone as the veneer. Because we pre-cut the materials for the outside and inside of the heater at our shop, installation of this heater can be accomplished in about three days. The exit can be on the rear or the top, and the heater can be built with or without an upper chamber bake oven.
For more information on the design and installation, read through the full history of this heater.
- The Cottage Heater is intended to be installed by Maine Wood Heat installers only and is not a DIY kit.
