    Pot belly

    If you find one, buy 2. One for you and one for my freezing Isaan ass. I live in Sakon and there isn't one fn heather of any kind for sake in this GD place. have to go all the way to Udon to by an electric fired oil filled piece of crap heater. That is all there is, Period. While you are at it, Get a stove for my GD Thai truck that came without so much as a defroster.

    Now here is a good business opportunity for some enterprising soul; find some nice wood burning stoves and import them

    Have you blokes not heard of coats...???.. or three G/F.. 1 on top,1 each side.....

    BUT...If you are hard up for a wood heater,...
    try a 4 gallon drum, or better still a 12 gallon one, Lay it on it's side, cut an 8''
    hole in the front end for air & wood, a hole on top at the back to take a 4'' metal drain pipe. 9ft long,, and send your g/f out to cut the wood.
    Don't put the drum or the flue within 24 inches of any combustables..

    Be very careful. I was a WETT certified stove inspector in Canada and saw some horror stories. I imagine anything homemade in Thailand to be an extreme fire risk. Also carbon monoxide is an issue. There's some really good stoves being made in Canada, USA and a few European ones. Probably very expensive to import. Clearance requirements to combustible material for a non-certified stove are 48" in Canada and if you have one you won't get fire insurance.

    Thanks Steevee,

    I have been looking up the codes and will take several things into consideration now. Even if I make it myself I was planning to use 24 or 36" schedule 40 pipe which is .687 inch thick. everything would be welded and I will insure the chimney pipes are double walled through the ceiling and roof. My House is all concrete and steel and the roof is C-pak moneer tile which is flame proof. (Pics are in my gallery). Hopefully I can find something in BKK and if I build it I am confident of my abilities to fabricate (especially steel). I also found an idea on-line where the wall of the house is lined with brick for added fire resistance and some flair. I also have one more idea of making the actual burn box double walled as well. To add humidity in the air I will try to find on of those old fashioned copper tea kettles to give her the old fashioned look. Even thought of a Pyrex door glass but that would require a seal which could quite difficult locate.

    Thanks again...

    You're welcome. Of course, Thai all concrete construction would not be subject to the same combustion concerns as N. American all wood construction. For flue pipe, you can insulate with hi-temp insulation between the two layers of pipe. Do not use galvanized and maximum 2-90 deg. bends. Double walling the firebox reduces code clearances to 24". You could also line with firebrick. If you have a combustible surface, you can attach fireproof protection. Be sure there is an airspace behind.
