Design Sleuth: The Camp Stove for Home and Wilderness


Design Sleuth: The Camp Stove for Home and Wilderness

August 27, 2014

Who isn’t transfixed by flames? The winner of the Best Amateur-Designed Office Space in this year’s Remodelista Considered Design Awards has a fixture that intrigued readers: a wood-burning camp stove that can be used indoors and out. Here are the hearth-warming details:

Above: Located in a converted 10-by-10-foot backyard shed in San Francisco, the office is the work of Caitlin Long, mother of two, who chronicles her projects and family life in The Shingled House blog. Like everyone else, Long singled out the stove as her favorite element in the room: “I installed the woodstove (a portable camping stove) with my older son, who loves to have a little fire going when he uses the office to study at night.” 


Above: The stove is from Kni-Co of Wallowa, Oregon, a company that specializes in US-made lightweight, portable stoves (shown here) for use in tents as campfire alternatives. Long chose the Denali Camp Stove of 10- and 12-gauge steel; Kni-Co calls it the largest camp stove on the market (weight: 72 pounds). Prices for the Denali start at $314.95.

Above: Long installed a fireproof cement board to insulate the wall behind the woodstove “so that we don’t catch our shed on fire.” She then painted the board dark gray with Rust-Oleum High Heat spray–see the Before and After at The Shingled House.

Above: Here’s the stove awaiting installation in the shed. Go to The Shingled House to see Long and her son put the pieces in place–and light the first fire.

Above: The award-winning office, with a fireside stump (and a carbon monoxide alarm installed for safety). Says Long, “Obviously, it isn’t freezing here in San Francisco, so the woodstove isn’t a necessity for warmth, but it sure does add magic.”
