Never saw a stove put together like this one....

I like it! This looks like a nicely developed masonry stove from Poland.The Europeans have these stoves down to a science.
Can't wait until they are common place here. That is awesome, Shadow.
That is so cool...Is this stove working without a chimney???
Better be sure you put it where you want it. I wonder what sort of weight we're talking about here?
Oh... those silly Europeans.
"Don't worry Dear. I am just going to mix some mortar here on the new hardwood floor. What could go wrong?"
A bit more than a ton.
It's vented low and out the back. You can see the flue connection going in around 1:25.
"Finished stove looks good Adelbert. But what is this? I just found it on the porch."
I was I thinking the same thing. If ever there was a time to use nice clean drop clothes it's while shooting a how to video.
Let me get this straight. You order a stove and they drop off a pallet of bricks. One of the options is the two guys in coveralls to help assemble the pile of bricks into something that will not burn the house down?
On a serious note, how airtight is it? Any efficiency numbers? Particulates?
Very interesting. I had to find the assembly guide, and watch the video again to see how it works
On the right/left sides, there are 4 large tubes in the wall of the stove. The exhaust goes to the top of the stove, then back down those tubes to the chimney at the bottom.
The air intake is at the very bottom, then travels up two smaller tubes to the firebox.
I posted a link to the company above. Actually, it's pretty efficient. http://www.termokaust.com/stove/Tests-and-certificates,4.html, http://www.termokaust.com/stove/Technical-specification,2.html
I'm assuming this is not a DIY stove, but may be it is. Personally, I would want a mason to install. I am too sloppy with brick laying. The finished units have some nice tile options.
Pretty cool stove, any idea on why the round piece for the bottom of the firebox, is that a wear item or just decoration?
Yep. Found it in the FAQ.
The floor of the furnace features a plug made of cast iron. It is mounted on a heat-insulating cord, which can be prised off and removed. After opening, we gain access to the sedimentation chamber and outlets of all four sedimentation passes from the top of the stove. Additionally, we have access to the hole of a pipe that connects the stove with chimney. Cleaning consists in periodical removal of the soot after prior clearing all the passes with a wire brush. Access to the top section of the stove is possible through a vault in the furnace.
Thought this was cute:
Remember: burning green wood is disadvantageous to the device! Reasons for using green wood vary. They are innocent sometimes - here are some quotes: "... I liked the smell of burning green wood..."; and our favourite: "...I've been chopping that firewood all day long, why not burn it?...”.
Natural inclinations and the enormous desire to burn something eventually win over logical thinking and ecology.
We build firewood stoves taking care of our customer's wallets. Green wood dirty our stove and chimney, and at the same time it produces 50% less energy. Please keep that in mind while using our stoves.

Sorry, my Polish is not that strong...
With out Union brick layers it may not go over so well here!
These were the first questions I had when I watched the vid.
Hearth and stove all in one... You better make sure you put it where you want it and
it has a sturdy foundation.
Nothing like cooking in the living room.
I saw a video similar to this one a while back but it was a German mini soapstone heater that was put together without any mortar. They used some kind of metal splines and gasket between the joints and she was ready to burn in about an hour. Pretty cool stuff but I don't know if this would fly in the USA.
Knowing german bureaucracy and certification standards I am pretty sure if its ok there it would be ok here. Just as an example: The chimney sweep comes for a visit every year - mandatory. And not just for woodstoves but any heating appliance e. g. your oil burner or gas furnace.
