I sweep a lot of Contura appliances, as can be seen from my previous blogs, but I had never done one of these before. This is a Contura i50 Wood-Burning Cassette Stove that I swept recently at an address in Clare shortly before Christmas. It is certainly unusual, almost like a built-in fireplace as opposed to a stove. When it is not in use it looks rather like a fish tank in the wall in my mind, it certainly has a very contemporary appearance. Although I should imagine that when it is all fired up and in operation it will look quite spectacular. This stove was installed a number of years ago by Cut Maple Stoves from New England, who install a large number of stoves in the area.
Contura Stoves are a Swedish company based in the town of Markaryd – Markaryd is a municipality in Kronoberg County at the southern tip of Sweden. Contura Stoves are known for their distinctive contemporary stove designs and the appliance of the most up to date stove technology.
