Does anyone have a suggestion on how to add an oven to this plan? it's 20" deep. We are first time builders and live in a small space, a remodeled garage. We only need something small and this Russian design caught our eye. It seems simple to build, but I'm one of those freaks who thinks we should not be so dependent on electricity and would like to modify this design to have a little oven. Can it be done ? It's getting cold here and we are keeping warm with a little space heater. Help!

Looking at the video on the above link from 1min and on wards it shows the build of the stove. It isn't a rocket stove as I know them but it seems to be an efficient way of increasing internal surface area and mass, if the triangular bricks at the bottom are strong enough to hold the weight of the mass of the internal column.
As for fitting an oven into it... if you want a black oven you could use the fire box. If you want a white oven it will depend on the wall material you want to use. As it isn't a rocket you may have low enough fire temps to just put a metal box above the fire box before starting the internal column. Leaving plenty of space between the metal /oven box and the internal wall for the fumes. The problem you have in that situation is that you have 520mm exterior with approx 110mm thick exterior walls leaving ~300mm for fume spaces and oven. It will be up to you how big the fume spaces will be but if you allow 50mm on each side and 100mm at the back you are left with an oven that is only 200x310mm floor space of which the outer 1/3 will not be heated to cooking temps as it is part of the exterior wall of the stove. You can make the exterior wall thinner but then it will be tricky when you make it thicker again and then again when you start off the internal column. I would not go that way. Best of luck with what you decide to do and if you get it going well please report back.

daniel: in my experience as I am working now on something of that nature, I have thought of making a heat exchanger and distributing the heat through vents using a slower fan. Now after a few years I realize that mass heaters give out primarily radiant heat, for

vesuvius: Do any of you have experience with using the glass from home oven doors on a rocket stove? I'd like to have a viewing port on my stove but don't want to fork out for new ceramic glass. Any thought as to whether it would take the heat of a rocket stove?
