Here is truly a massive cassette stove which has a rather capacious firebox. This is a Stuv 16-in Wood-Burning Cassette Stove Swept that I recently swept at an address in Newport. Stuv are not a make of stove that I come across regularly and this example of a Stuv 16-in Wood-Burning Cassette Stove is the only one I sweep across the local area, so something of a rarity. As can be seen from the photograph it can accommodate a huge amount of fuel. Those logs that are stacked inside the stove were rather big, and there are quite a few of them in their and there is still a large amount of space in the firebox. I think that the log store below the stove is a nice feature and extremely labour saving. No frequent journeys to the log store outside here! I think Stuv Cassette stove looks great particularly as it is in my view situated in the right setting, a large room with both old and new decor. It is additionally in a rather large room. This particular example is located in a large sitting room in a barn conversion, so it is ideally located. There is also that nice juxtaposition of a contemporary cassette stove in an old building, that works very well, the contrast of old and new, fabulous.
