As part of the renovation of this bungalow in Four Marks, we were commissioned to install a freestanding wood burning stove. This property didn’t have a chimney so it was required to fit a twinwall flue system. The chimney runs up through the ceiling, through the loft space, and exits through the roof. The stove choice here was a Contura 850 in black finish on a textured granite hearth.
Contura is a great choice of stove for this style of installation. With its low distance to combustibles, the Contura range of wood burning stoves can sit just 100mm away from a combustible wall. The tall design of the stove also works better aesthetically when a stove is freestanding in the room. It is also quite handy to have an area to store your wood beneath the stove.
