I built this stove in 2010 and I have been using it ever since.
Step 1: Cutting and Welding
First I modified the barrels .
Step 2: Cutting and Placing Bricks
Then I cut and placed the bricks.
Step 3: Ready for Heating
It was then ready for heating.
Two years ago someone I know built this stove using these pictures as a guide .
He uses it to heat up his quail farm.
Step 4: Update 1
Yesterday (25.11.2014) I made some new pictures for you to see how it looks stove after three winters.
Step 5: Update 2
I made a sketch of the stove so that you see the look on the inside.
With this stove I heat a space of 60 square meters (646 square foot) or rather 150 m (5,300 cubic foot).
If outside is -16 degrees Celsius (3.2 Fahrenheit), inside are 19 degrees Celsius (66.2 Fahrenheit).
The workshop I heat has plank walls of 2.5 cm (1 inch) and polystyrene insulation of 3 cm (1.2 inch). So it is not very isolated.
