Kimberly Stove and Weller House


Have you heard about the Kimberly Stove? 

Unforgettable Fire is a little Puget Sound company that's gaining international acclaim with their extremely efficient and innovative wood stoves. These attractive stainless steel stoves are perfect for tiny houses. The stove is a portable gasifier that features a thermoelectric generator, hot water coils, an oven, and a 12 volt blower system — all within a compact 10 inch diameter. Read on for the 5 big reasons Kimberly Stoves are a great choice for heating your tiny house: 

  1. Extremely Efficient: A Kimberly Stove can heat up to 1500 square feet for 8 hours on a single load of fuel. The unique design prevents heat loss through the chimney. 
  2. Tiny Footprint: These stoves were specifically designed to fit tiny spaces. At a mere 25.5 inches tall and a 10 inch diameter, the Kimberly Stove fits easily into your tiny house, cabin, or boat. 
  3. Completely Portable: Weighing just 56 pounds, you could potentially bring your Kimberly stove with you from tiny house to boat, or wherever you travel. The stove sets up and produces heat within minutes. 
  4. 100% Made in America: Manufactured in southern Oregon from domestically produced stainless steel. 
  5. Beautiful: The unique cylindrical design of the Kimberly stove makes it not only efficient and compact, but also one of the prettiest wood stoves we’ve ever seen!

Kimberly Stoves are finalists in the first-ever Wood Stove Design Challenge, sponsored by Popular Mechanics! You can read about it and cast your vote here.  

Kimberly is offering FREE Shipping/Handling In Continental U.S. To Midnight May 2, 2013! See their website for more information!

I like the stove’s aesthetics a lot and love the idea of wood heat, however, am wondering if anyone has actual experience in using one in a tiny home. Are there issues with the space becoming overheated during the day and conversely too cold at night once the fire has burned out? Since tiny houses are generally very poorly insulated, I would imagine that it can get cold pretty quickly in there. We live in southern Oregon with moderate temps in winter. Generally, nothing much colder than around 20F at night except for occasional cold fronts going down to 0F. Perhaps a propane stove is better for keeping a comfortable temperature range?

This is a very expensive stove , but I am also hearing that people are not liking the Dickinson stoves all that much. Has anyone looked at the Hobbit stoves? I really like them.

In the Central Valley in California where I live, the county often declares no-burn days when there’s an atmospheric inversion and ozone levels are high, or when the chance of a wildfire starting is high. We often get inversions in the winter, so a number of people I know have converted their fireplaces to gas-burning ones and have done away with wood stoves altogether. I don’t know if this would be a problem in the Northwest or in high elevation areas, however.

The deal breaker for me is placing the logo in the center of the viewing window. Would you buy a television with the logo in the middle of the screen?
Great idea, but I am against such “in my face” branding.

So sorry Adam. Truthfully the UL safety test made us put something in front of the door to avoid frontal impact damage to the glass, We thought we should make it pretty and have gotten hundreds of compliments on it. In fact you are the first to have ANYTHING negative to say about this. It seems a bit of a funny reason to judge a deal breaker when you could remove the glass and cut out the emblem……but oh well, everyone is entitled to their opinion.

Roger Lehet:

Just finished reading all the comments which I should do more often. I get that the stove is expensive, yet when compared with other products fully installed many come close or even higher in end cost. Many of those who do not simply can not be compared other than the fact that they burn wood. We have hundreds of owners who are thrilled with their purchase, they took the time to understand what they were buying and its benefits as well as limitations. I can only say that our owners find that living with this product is exactly what we represent it to be.

Paul:

That. IS. Freakishly. Expensive. Almost 4 grand and then installation costs? Sorry, I don’t care how good that is, would take a LOT of wood to bridge the price differential. I’d say probably about 40 years worth of wood. Do you think your fireplace would last that long? One thing I can tell you, I certainly won’t.

And what about the rest of the glass? Surely that is in “imminent danger” from full frontal impact? How thick, or perhaps more appropriately, how thin is the glass?

Owner of Kimberly since February 2012! Previous negative comments are probably more “not informed” but definitely WRONG! Not too expensive! Comparable in cost to buy wood/pellet/gas burning stoves/fireplaces. Expense to install MINIMAL! Expense to use WAY MINIMAL! Propane is really expensive!! We have propane forced air in our house, too. MADE IN THE USA! (USA jobs, people). Top quality! Exactly as advertised! Go to website and read details. www.unforgettablefirellc.com. Emissions well below stringent air quality standards in Washington state! We can use this stove in town even during air quality burn bans because there are almost NO emissions! Honestly, I am not paid or any thing, just a really happy owner! Wood stoves/pellet stoves have/have had glass in the doors for years! K in the front of the glass a safety feature-not branding in your face! Stove holds its fire all night. Keeps the house comfortable. Like any wood stove, adjust the heat output during the day so it is not too hot/too cold during the day time. Go to website and do the research! Really! Thanks for reading my comment and considering my opinions.

I have had a Kimberly for about 9 months now. Using it in earnest now this winter. I heats up our 1000 sqft home nicely. I use it as secondary heat. All I had to do was put in a stainless chimney liner, which I did myself. I get the compressed sawdust bricks for $250 a ton (100 20lb packs of 10 bricks). All told, well worth the money and inexpensive to run. This stove is quality.

Mark:

$4K is much too much. You can buy 4 acres of hardwood for that money and cut all the firewood you need forever and burn it in a $300 stove.
For marine use this would be exquisite but on land it makes no sense to me.

Peter:

Very interesting!

Can Rick or Sheryl or anyone else expand on the effectiveness of the stove?

I guess the more important question is: Will it actually heat a 500 or 800 sq. feet? Strange thing to say on a Tiny House blog as these are massive in comparison to what is being done, but 500 to 800 is a more realistic expectation for many people.

Not sure on the economics, but I own a few things I probably didn’t need to spend so much for, but glad I did for various reasons.

With respect to one of the comments above, why would a tiny home not be well-insulated? If it was built fairly recently and by someone who knew what they were doing, it would be very well-insulated. However, there are a lot of DIYers who think they can build things but make a huge botch of it because they don’t follow the plans or think more highly of their skills than they should. Insulation is one of the things that people really mess up because they try to jam it into places and once you jam it in, you’ve ruined its ability to insulate. It’s definitely not easy to build a house, tiny or otherwise. I love what I’ve seen about the Kimberly stove and am considering one. It would be a quality piece I would save up for. I imagine the high price is due in part to keeping the work in the US. Funny, we complain about cheap junk from China but aren’t willing to pay the price for the alternative. We can’t have it all.

I spent 2500.00 in oil last. year and it is going to be about 1500.00 this year, due to cheaper oil and I resurrected the wood stove to help out. If this stove does what it claims, and I believe it will, the stove will pay for itself in two years. And to respond to a earlier post, Where about buying 4 acres of land for four thousand bucks, a 1/4 acre building lot is around 30,000.00 bucks. Makes for some pretty expensive firewood.

DJ Finn:

Sorry, I meant where I live land is about 30,000.00 per 1/4 acre building lot.
