Solution Overview & Benefits

The stove consists of 8 specially sized AAC cement blocks, a cast iron fire grate, and a mild steel pot holder. The blocks are tied together with pieces of wire. Bricks are arranged on the ground in the shape of a U. The AAC cement inset is placed on top of the arrangements, such that the firebox opening is at right angles with the opening in the tunnel produced by the U shaped arrangement of bricks. A platform of bricks and mud or bricks and cement can be built around the stove.
