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..

i'm not the least surprised. there should be ALOT of heat coming out of that corner.

congrats on the steel track, brilliant idea. one that could be considered by many people who need heat to travel from point A to point B.
