This looks fantastic. I have looking at Alan S. house on Daycreek.com and I really like the round house. We are just getting started with our practice cordwood house and I can see you've put a lot of love into yours. Good luck with the finish.

Just a question...You are tying your rafters to the masonry heater, right? Will there be any chance of heat from the masonry stove causing any problems with the rafters? Just asking.

Dear Kurt,

Thank you for your note.

Thank you for saying this.

Well, kind of, they are setting on top of the ledge we created on the stove.

Our masonry stove design is the same as Rob Roy's. He gives the maximum temperature that the ledge underneath the rafters reaches on his masonry stove in one of his books, but I can't remember what it was. I do remember him saying that the temperature is equal to that of warm bath water. So, there shouldn't be any problems.

Does this make sense?

Take care,

Curt
