Current Projects/Better Photos
As noted in my post below, better pictures were in order. My client thankfully has a better camera than I and graciously provided these shots - and with a fire burning no less! As you can see, this heater is unique from all perspectives. The upper photo shows a chaise lounge styled sitting area, two different shelving units and decorative soapstone pieces. There is no shortage of warm places to sit on this one-of-a-kind masonry heater.
I started my construction career in 1987 building timber frame homes. It was an omen that the first timber frame project I did had a masonry heater in it. I have been designing, selling, and building masonry heaters since 1998, though I built my first one in 1994. Like many, I started our building "kit" heaters. Even today our primary business at the Masonry Heater Store, LLC is the Tulikivi line of manufactured soapstone masonry heaters. I caught the bug, however, and now design and build heaters of every shape and size, for those who want something uniquely their own. I hope you will buy my new book: Masonry Heaters: Designing, Building, and Living with a Piece of the Sun.
