[heading]A woodburning stove installed in a garden room in Chester[/heading]
Warm and inviting, the V2 looks right at home!
Recently the Vesta Stoves team had another interesting summerhouse installation. This time one of our Vesta V2 woodburning stoves was installed in a wonderful Dunster House cabin situated on the outskirts of Chester. Over six hours our stove engineers did some fine work and by the end of the day the wood burner stove was up and running. The Vesta V2 woodburning stove (with log store unit) was selected due to its low KW output, ideal for a small garden room or summerhouse.
The Dunster House cabin is 4 years old and had been used previously just to store garden furniture. Our customers were looking for a new lease of life for the cabin and the Vesta V2 fitted the bill perfectly and transformed the cabin completely. The owner of the summerhouse opted for Vesta engineers to install the stove so he could take advantage of our lifetime warranty. Rather than the three year warranty with our standard Vesta Stove DIY pack.
Because of the nature of the installation the stove engineers surveyed the site to ensure the stove would have optimal and safe placement. With an OK from the customer on their choice of stove location, within a few hours the custom heatshield was installed as well as watertight flashing and a twin wall flue kit. Even in such a small area we have to ensure that the woodburner has sufficient ventilation.

You can feel the heat from there too!
After commissioning the stove (which included the installation of a free carbon monoxide detector) the Vesta engineers stayed behind to give a full tutorial and a demonstration on how to use it correctly.
The demo included how to light and manage the stove, as well as how to care for the burner and log store long-term. We left a very happy (and snug) customer to enjoy his summerhouse cabin for years to come with a Vesta Stoves woodburner.

The Vesta engineers specialise in stove installation for log cabins and summerhouses and we cover the whole of the United Kingdom. We have a range of woodburning and multifuel stoves designed for use in summerhouses, log cabins and garden rooms where the flue system has to be kept as short as possible.
We have two kits that are designed for this purpose and these can be found here
Our stove DIY kits come with the complete system to enable the stove to be installed with a working DIY understanding. With everything, you need to comply with all current building regulations. Although if you’re not confident in installing the stove, our professional installers and engineers are on hand to answer your technical queries or carry out the installation for a fixed fee.

Vesta install logburners in summerhouses
We were recently approached at Vesta Stoves to develop a unique custom stove project that really piqued our interest. The request was for a custom wood burning stove that could be used to heat a cabin in Winter as well as a patio heater in Summer. Always up for a challenge our engineers in our Lancashire workshop came up with a design based on our coveted Vesta V4 wood burning stove.
The customer had seen the work that we did recently on Channel 4’s Grand Designs on the HIVEHAUS. In this project we supplied a Vesta multifuel stove to compliment the cell or ‘hive’ design on the HIVEHAUS to provide an efficient but contemporary method of heating the building. Whereas our customer wanted to take it a step further by having the choice to use the wood burner either inside or outside. At Vesta we build garden stoves and we build indoor stoves, but this is the first time we’ve ever combined the two designs together.
This project was a great opportunity to show the diversity of our wood burning stoves. Firstly we had to ensure the door could take the full weight of the wood burner being hung on it. Which basically meant replacing and reinforcing the door completely. Next, to ensure the safety of the stove in use, we designed and built a custom heat shield that backed and surrounded the flue system. We made sure that the custom built heat shield matched the bespoke stove colour and modern curved design of the wood burner itself. We appreciate that safety is a must but there’s nothing wrong with doing it in style! The flue system then neatly goes from the top of the stove out through the back door adding to the classic log cabin effect with a neat chrome finish outside.
The customer is over the moon with the results and we’re happy to have worked on such an individual stove design. We really think the Vesta stove is at home in (and out of) the cabin and we know it’ll be a talking point and centrepiece for many years to come.

heading]Modern wood burning stovesAn example of our V8 modern wood burning stove
Many customers come into our showroom and often ask “what’s the difference between your modern stoves and the old cast iron stoves”?
Well, apart from the obvious looks there are also several key advances in the burning technology as well as tricks of the trade to designing a good modern wood burning stoves. Most modern wood burning stoves are manufactured from steel. This is the material of choice due to its elasticity, rapid heat up and ability to stand huge temperature variations without cracking (unlike cast iron)
Advances in materials has enabled us to create modern wood burning stoves with huge glass windows and the ability to have an airwash system that keeps the glass clean and free from soot and tar residues.
It is of course well documented that cast iron compared to a modern steel stove holds the heat a lot longer and this is a fact. However, most modern wood burners compensate for this by lining the chambers of the stove with a materials that is used in night storage heaters. This more than compensates for this pitfall. You only need to look at the efficiency ratings on our modern wood burning stoves to see that with efficiency’s in excess of 80% a cast iron stove is no competition.
You can take a look at the build quality of one of our modern wood burning stoves by watching the video below: You will see the insulation inside the modern wood burning stove that is used to retain the heat. This is the buff coloured material surrounding the firebox.
You can also see in the video that by using steel in the development of our modern wood burning stoves, we are able to create a sleek design were the focus become the flames themselves. Most importantly as with all our modern wood burning stoves we are able to offer a long warranty. This is because our design’s do not suffer from cracking like many cast iron stoves.
