BACKGROUND

We stumbled into the Tiny Wood Stove business after trying to source a stove for our Tiny Home a 1966 Airstream. We wanted a modest sized wood burner for affordable off-grid dry heat. After scouring the internet to find every possible solution we compiled a list of all the options. What we found was a bunch of stoves that were not ideal for our situation. They weren’t the right size, they didn’t have the right features or they were beyond our budget. So we set out to create the perfect stove for small spaces. The Dwarf is efficient, durable and affordable!

AIR CONTROLS

The Dwarf gives you complete control over primary, secondary and tertiary air supplies. The airtight primary and secondary air are controlled by separate levers on the bottom of the stove and the tertiary air-wash is controlled by a slide valve just above the door.

 

FIREBOX

The Dwarf firebox is made of durable cast iron and fire brick. Cast iron is very durable with for continuous use, and the fire bricks keep reflect heat back into the firebox for a more efficient burn.

BURNS CHUNKS OF WOOD: 8-10″ Long

 

RIDDLING GRATE + ASH PAN

The bottom of the firebox is a cast iron grate with a mechanical lever (located lower left of door) that engages the floor of the grate sifting out ash from the firebox. This handy feature is a must for coal, and helps to quickly and efficiently clean out the firebox. Below the grate is a removable ash pan for easy disposal.

 

OPTIONAL ADD-ONS

You can customize the look of your stove by adding the tall cast iron legs or wood storage stand.  Limited numbers of enamel doors are available as a special order item (contact us if you’d like one).  Future accessories include a water boiler option and factory heat shields.

    We LOVE our dwarf 4kw tiny wood stove. We’re really happy with the build quality, design and performance and it’s hands down our FAVORITE part of our bus.

    We installed it in our 31 ft. converted prison bus tiny home about eight months ago. After traveling early this year, we spent two months in northern New Hampshire winter temperatures. The 4kw kept us very warm & comfortable. We actually really enjoyed using and tending to it.

    Installation of our stove was simple and straightforward; everything you need is provided in their install kit.

    We went with an enameled door and LOVE it.

    Stove works great, heats a 200 SQ cabin with ease. Built an elevated steel table to hold the stove and store boots and wood underneath.

    Really love this stove, I was considering building one and glad I didn’t. Impressed with the heavy wall 4” pipe and the insulated pipe.

    Installed ours into a 1967 Sovereign Airstream. The installation went easier then thought and whenever I had a question Tinywoodstove.com was there every step of the way. They were more then willing to help get the job done.. Definitely recommend buying your wood stove from these guys!

    How's the stove's output? Just Right

    What kind of structure are you heating? Tiny House

    We spent half the winter with an oil filled heater before we could install our stove. It kept us from freezing but that’s about it! There would always be condensation on the windows (we live in the Sierra Foothills, so it’s not particularly humid here). The first time we fired up the stove, it was such a joy to watch the temps rise and the humidity drop! I haven’t worried about humidity since! Our guests’ first comments are always, “Oh that is so cute!” And while it is, it’s also a beast! It can raise the temp in our 24′ tiny 20 degrees F in less than an hour. (Pro tip: a fan and a cracked window will help air circulation and lower humidity faster. We don’t have an air intake, so cracking a window is necessary. Our CO2 detector has never gone off.) Aside from the product, the team at Tiny Wood Stove was attentive and so helpful. They really went above and beyond. We can changed plans and so had to send some things back and it was totally painless. When we had a question about install, we sent pictures and they responded quickly. Easy and honest folks to work with.

    Small stoves inherently won’t burn as long as big ones because there’s only a fraction of the material in the box. I’ve heard complaints about other brands of small stoves needing tending every hour and that is not the case with this stove. It won’t burn through the night, but it will still be pretty dang warm in the morning! We’ve even had some glowing coals, depending on what type of wood we are using.

    It’s a great little stove and the best on the market for small spaces. Plus you can feel good for supporting a small, family owned business in the US. I’m glad we went with Tiny Wood Stove.

    How's the stove's output? Just Right

    What kind of structure are you heating? Bus

    My wife and I absolutely love our Dwarf 4k stove. We purchased it last summer and installed it in our 38′ Thomas school bus. We used it nearly every night throughout this past winter, and it kept us roasty toasty. I’ve given countless tours of our bus, and the Dwarf 4k is easily the most discussed item. Most folks are blown away that we have a real wood burning stove inside the converted bus! The ambiance and warmth provided on a cold night is unparalleled.

    We looked at other stoves before purchasing, but we loved the fact that Tiny Wood Stove was a one-stop shop. The price was right, and we didn’t need to purchase parts from multiple sources. Tiny Wood Stove’s videos and booklet make assembly and installation very simple.

    Lastly, the folks at Tiny Wood Stove have been fantastic. We’ve worked with Elizabeth, Dan, and Cody and all were very helpful through the purchasing and install process.

    What kind of structure are you heating? Bus

    After using our stove in our bus for the last 7 months, I can say with confidence this is the BEST woodstove I have ever had. The air adjustments allow us to set the stove up and just let it warm us through the chilly nights. Compared to other stoves in friends busses I am so glad I chose this one and not the other companies out there.

    Our 4kW stove has been installed since August 2019 and it fits perfectly in our 200 sq ft permitted “shed”. We’ve used it a number of times and it works very well. It does take about an hour to heat the place in the winter as we’re right on Hood Canal which is extremely damp in winter months. But we love it. Our contractor said it was easy to install

    The folks at Tiny Wood Stove are amazing! Their customer service is top notch, always eager to assist in any way they can to assure your project is successful. In my case in particular, they have been especially generous regarding returns and exchanges as my installation needs shifted during construction.The stove itself as well as the third-party flue parts they sell are all made with obvious quality and attention to detail. I am very eager to actually fire it up but that will have to wait until more of my tiny house project is built (a slow-moving endeavor fit in around the rest of life’s demands) such that I may safely install and operate the stove.

    i LOVE my dwarf 4kw tiny stove!! living in a 265 square foot yome (part yurt, part geodesic dome) in the northeast wood heat was really the only way to stay warm in winter… and in doing the research, the dwarf was really the only option – everything else is huge…

    ordering was seamless and the crew is super helpful with any questions you have, installing the stove was pretty straightforward for a complete newbie as the manual is clear and concise… its extremely high quality – all parts and materials were top notch, brilliantly designed, well packaged and beautiful!

    the dwarf has kept my space toasty thru some pretty frigid weather and i truly have fallen in love with this tiny stove in the course of learning how to install it, use it well, and maintain it properly… i am deeply grateful to all at tinywoodstove.com for providing such a resource to those with small spaces!

    i’ve been using seasoned ash wood from our land here, but also have supplemented with envi-8 blocks and found those work awesome too, providing extended burn time and a great backup when the wood is running low… the dwarf and tending a fire has taught me so much just about life – for anyone even considering a small stove THIS IS THE ONE!!

    endless thanks, Shanti

    Purchased a Dwarf 4K to replace an existing wood-coal stove aboard our 50′ sailboat. I wanted to install the 5K version but it required different sized venting and deck hardware which would have added to the installation cost.
    After some hemming and hawing typical of boaters, I decided on the Dwarf 4K. While we only used the original wood-coal stove as supplemental heat to our primary diesel heating system, the Dwarf 4K has actually become our primary heating source as it keeps the complete boat warm, dry and comfortable in temperatures down to 25F.
    Below 25F the stove requires more close supervision and stoking throughout the night, but could keep the boat warm down to an outside temp of 20F dependent on firewood type. Hardwood seems to be the best wood for the longest burn but requires more labor to get it to a functional size. The smaller compressed wood byproduct bricks work well but are tricky to adjust for a slower burn, having a tendency to burn quicker than firewood. We keep a MAP torch handy for lighting the kindling and preheating the flue in order to get a non-smokey startup.
    Overall we’re happy with the Dwarf. I’d offer a few extras for boat owners like a hot water coil and a pot rail common on boat installations. There are smaller products on the market but the Dwarf 4K just the right size to have a lasting burn time to make it through the night which makes it a good choice for boaters.

    I bought the 4kW Dwarf. I am really enjoying it and the folks at Tiny Wood Stove were great, from ordering to delivery and setup. I installed it in in our 1890’s refurbished fireplace. After years of trouble with the old fireplace not drafting well, I had almost given up on it. Now it’s great.

    Excellent product, well-made, everything as advertised. My only dissatisfaction is with the fact that parts seem to be often “out of stock” causing delays. Customer service and communication was otherwise great, however. So I would highly recommend the product, just plan to order well in advance if you are on a construction schedule, as some parts may take a few weeks to arrive. There are a few stoves on the market, but this one is functional as well as physically beautiful. Love the glass door adding light and beauty to the room. We really like our tiny wood stove.

    High quality stove works very well in my 27′ travel trailer. Surprising heat output from a small device.

    The calculator says I could have used a 3kW stove but I am glad I chose the 4kW. Don’t be a cheap skate with the installation. Get the kit and do it right.

    My stove sits on the floor so I am definitely glad I got the taller legs. Great stove, great customer support. Highly recommended.

    Stove has been up and running for a few months now. The quality of all the parts and stove itself are excellent. Should last for many, many years to come. Thanks for all the help to get this up and running. I write this as I sip coffee in front of our little stove, on this frosty morning in Pennsylvania. The only thing I added was a spring handle to make the handle more user friendly. I use this as a primary heat source on our 750 sq foot home, and it does a great job heating the house. We have electric heat, however with this stove now installed we are saving approximately $200 a month on our electric bill during winter. The setup will pay for itself in no time.

    The stove is the perfect size for my application. I’ve been building a super insulated ~450ft.^2 home in remote Alaska’s sub-arctic. This winter the temperatures were -50F at my door. I use an oil stove to maintain heat when I’m gone and the wood stove works great when I’m there. I’ve found the controls to quite good, and the wood that I’ve used thus far has been burned quite efficiently. Again, for my super insulated small cabin…this stove works great. House specs: ~ 450ft.^2; R-45 Wall, R70-Roof/ceiling, R-40 floor. Also their customer service was quite good.

    The stove is working great. It was installed in a 12′ x 16′ cabin with walls and ceiling insulated with R-13, no insulation in floor, which is elevated about 16″ off of ground. Stove produces enough heat to be uncomfortable when run hot but is good when dampened down heavily and almost lasts through night.

    Customer service was best I’ve ever experienced. I regularly had Tiny Wood Stove contacting me to make sure everything was going well. I was able to return products with no issues and was allowed plenty of time to do so. I’m very pleased with my experience with TWS, thanks a ton!

    We recently purchased a dwarf 4kw woodstove for our 16′ yurt and couldn’t be happier. The stove it’s self is very high quality and easy to assemble. The flue parts are well designed and also very high quality. The information on their website was very helpful during the installation process and flue design. The stove is now in and works great! looking forward to trying it out this winter once the snow starts to fly here in Colorado. Thanks for offering such a great product and backing it up with excellent customer service.
