Tiny Wood Stove – Big Heat

The Best Tiny Wood Stove To Heat Your Cabin, RV, Tiny House, Skoolie, Or Boat…

  • When you’re trying to heat a small space, most wood stoves don’t cut it. They’re big and heavy. They kick out way too much heat. They take up way too much floor space. Most stoves were never designed for use as small wood stoves for cabins, as mini wood stoves for RV use, or as a tiny house wood stove. Most manufacturers of a tiny wood stove have never had their stove EPA/CSA Certified and UL-tested. We did. [Disclosure: Kimberly™ is currently undergoing re-certification procedures to meet the 2020 emissions requirements for residential applications.]
  • The Kimberly™ gasifier wood stove had an accidental beginning. Inventor Roger Lehet’s 25-year-old wood stove shop was a casualty of The Great Recession. Unable to pay the rent, the Lehet family of three moved onto a boat moored off the coast of Vashon Island, near Seattle, Washington. Roger realized that no manufacturer made a tiny wood stove that could fit into his tiny space, so he cobbled together his first of several mini wood stoves, learning as he went.
  • Roger’s tiny house on water required a small, nearly smokeless wood stove in the marina. There was little room to store wood in the cabin, so his tiny wood stove needed to have a tiny appetite. A good night’s sleep required a longer burn time. So, Roger designed a two-stage combustion chamber to squeeze more heat from less wood. In the first combustion, oxygen is restricted so that the wood is gasified and becomes smoke. The smoke is re-burned as fuel in a second combustion before it exits the stove. The second combustion produces most of the heat and during secondary combustion, Kimberly’s chimney goes nearly smokeless.

An Ultra-Efficient & Clean Tiny Wood Stove

A Mini Wood Stove Engineered For Smaller & Bigger Spaces When Super Close Clearances Are Required…

  • Although she was born on a boat, the Kimberly™ stove was EPA-CSA certified and UL-approved for residential use. Nevertheless, the Kimberly™ stove has established her reputation as the best wood stove for a tiny house, the best RV wood stove, and the best marine wood stove, due to Kimberly’s small footprint and tight 6-inch clearances.
  • Kimberly™ can heat from 150 square feet up to 1,500 square feet, with a burn time of up to 8 hours {coal bed to coal bed}. You can control the amount of heat by the size of the fuel load, how often you load the stove and the species of the wood that you burn. Kimberly™ is portable and weighs only 56 pounds. Since there are no moving parts or electrical components to fail, Kimbelry™ is perfect for everyday use or for use in an emergency.
  • Like our bigger gasifier wood stove, Katydid™, our mini wood stove Kimbely™ squeezes more heat from less wood. Our patented gasification technology wastes less heat up the chimney, so more heat remains in your home. The proof is in Kimberly’s lower flue temperatures and unique UL-approved venting system, which can save you hundreds of $$$ on a new installation.
