Nice clean looking job. Hearth looks great. Application for this install? Garage, warehouse?

It is actually in the dining room since there was more space than in the living room. I wanted to go for some type of industrial look and needed some type of air gap between the stove and walls, so i just lined the walls with steel stud track. (And yes, my wife approves.)

Good looking unit... she'll keep you warm! And the room? I applaud those that dare be a bit different. Cool!

AKThom,

How did that Hitzer run for you this winter? I ran a Jotul 507 this year and found it had too small of a firebox to be useful for my application and our sub-bit.

Heat radiation will bounce off a mirror pretty much the same way light does..
