can you imagine arriving at the ferry port, as you check in,
sir, is you log burner completely extinguished.. .. or in a filling station. hang on whilst I dowse the embers.. or traveling in winter.. hurtling down the Autoroute ... honey, I'm freezing.. do me a favour, go and put another log on ..
it's a nice romantic idea.. but impractical and definitely not the safest heating option .. I'm out
Not practical for many reasons. I have fitted several in houses and know they consume vast amounts of oxygen as well as wood. You would defeat the object in a small space, as you would have to leave the door or a window open for a woodburner to work. Many think they can just have a wander around on a Sunday afternoon and collect wood for free heat. In reality woodburners nead dry hardwood that has been cut at least for 2 years. Its also a full time job for the maid dusting.
lots do have them in truck conversions even the ones that have wooden boxes as the living quarters . many use these as a way through the roof http://www.windysmithy.co.uk/flue-flashings.
i was going to fit one but then got given a thermex gas heater . later fitted a bigger new one . much easier than chopping wood .
as it is i find two gas wall lights give enough heat most of the time .
