Does it work? The stove heats up a 70m2 x 3m high ceiling room nicely. At this stage a 3°C heat increase from 16 to 19°C is achieved. I suspect my wood is too wet as we are not achieving optimal heat levels. I will have to let wood dry out for one season and try again. Opening up the glass sliding doors to heat an additional 60m2 (180m3) defies the object, with not much heat generated in the large area.
I am slightly disappointed by the upstairs chimney as it does not heat up the massive space as anticipated, but what can you expect of 3.6m exposed chimney?
Nonetheless a good buy. The fire has become a natural gathering point in the home and provides a pleasant ambience.

The wet wood can leave a residue on the inside of the chimney and make a mess.

Efficiency of the fireplace when used correct is fairly high meaning less heat loss through the chimney and less heat gain in your upstairs room.  Also the nice looking polished pipe gives off less heat than a dark matt colour one.  By painting it black you can probably double the heat output but double of little is still a small value and then you loose the nice look.

Enjoy it

It's this model . https://www.fireplacewarehouse.co.za/fireplaces-woodstoves/product-catalogues/invincible/product/219-invincible-pallinghurst-hermanus-12kw

We use that big kettle to boost the temperatur of our bathwater, as the solar geyser is a bit tepid at this time of year.

Used high heat rattlecan spray to make the chimney black.  Dit stink soos vrot vis.  But after a few fires the smell is now gone.

Used a grey engine enamel before the black which was a bad idea. Had to sand it all down again.

I bought and installed a Bosca sheetmetal wood heater for R7500 on GT last year before winter.

Results are great, it warms up the passage where it is installed and takes the chill out of the air in the adjoining bathroom and our bedroom.

It came with cheapish flue, and I went and bought a decent quality flue, which runs straight up through a 3,8meter high ceiling and then 1,8meters to the roof, with a final 1,2 meters to clear the roof's highest point.

I as worried that the flue may be too effective and draw too well becaus eof it's lenght, but I either got it right or the choking adjustment of the stove does a good job of controlling flow.

Will see how it lasts.

My home made job is still working well, The only problem I have is that I always forget to shut down the vents when the fire dies and get this kak smell coming out.

The one thing i can say is that I'm sure mine generates much more heat than the average joe, due to the design.
When running at full tilt, I can put my hand on the flue and keep it there for a couple of seconds before it starts becoming uncomfortable, hence I have very little heat loss going out.
And then the disadvantage once the fire has dies, there is no more draw, so the bad smell is not being drawn out.
