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!

The sturdy body is made of thick 3/16″ – 5/16th Steel Plate.



The door is made of high-quality cast iron which gives the face of the stove a classy look while providing optimal heat retention. (Cast iron remains hot much longer than steel)



The 5” Flue outlet can exit out the top or the rear of the stove depending on your needs. Exiting out the rear of the stove allows the entire top surface to be used as a cooking plate while exiting out the top of the stove allows are tighter installation with less clearances.



The Dwarf gives you complete control over primary, secondary and tertiary air supplies. The primary and secondary air is controlled via one lever at the bottom of the stove and the tertiary / air-wash is controlled by the lever just above the door.



The firebox of the Dwarf is made of durable cast iron and fire brick. Cast iron is very durable with constant heat use and the fire bricks keep the fire very heat which helps combust the wood thoroughly.




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 super handy for quickly and efficiently cleaning out the firebox. Below the grate is a removable ash pan that catches ash for easy disposal.



You can customize the look of your stove by adding the tall cast iron legs or wood storage stand. We are working on additional off-grid features like: baking oven and water heater.



400mm/16” sides, 450mm/18” rear. Clearances can be reduced by up to 2/3 with a properly designed heat shield.



The Dwarf can safely burn: burn wood, coal or compressed logs.


NOTE: This stove is not intended for residential heating. It is currently uncertified and only offered for recreational use.

    Tiny Wood Stove was great to deal with. Dan went above and beyond to deal promptly and fairly with concerns we had about the oven. Note: our flue design and extreme cold temperatures (-30 C) made using the oven unfeasible for us but it should work well for others who don’t have similar issues.
    Now for the review of the Dwarf 5kw stove without the oven attached. If you’re familiar with larger wood stoves, the small size takes some getting used to. We’re using it in a 12×24 cabin – anything larger would have been too big for us. Even at -30C we can have the window open a crack and the stove dampered down. We are limited in space and did add a heat shield around the stove – more for our peace of mind than an actually overheating concern. The stove is easy to light, drafts well. We do put our 8-10″ firewood in length wise to stop it from rolling out when the door is opened. The grate in front could be a couple inches higher to help keep wood in but at this time, that’s our only suggestion for improvement.
    Overall a great product and support from Tiny Wood Stoves is awesome.

    I love it! After looking at many small stoves to put in my 5th wheel, I found the 5KW to be the best. I have a 300 square ft RV and it heats it up from 59F to 72F in about 25 min. Once I cut a hole in the ceiling (the most daunting part) , the rest of the installation was super easy. Dan emailed me back promptly every time I had questions or concerns. The customer service is spot on. I will definitely add the oven in the future. I would highly recommend anyone that wants a wood stove in their RV or trailer to go with these guys.
