about us

Building Masonry Heaters is a labor of love for us. We design and build heaters because we believe in the technology. We are passionate about designing and building clean burning highly efficient heaters for our clients. We are located south of Rochester, New York which is close to Lake Ontario and the Finger Lakes region of New York. I have been a member of the Masonry Heater Association of North America┬ásince 2004. We are well versed in the construction of Kachelofens, Grundofens, Finnish Fireplaces, Swedish Kakelugn, Russian Fireplaces and Russian Bell Heater. We can face heaters with ceramic material “Kachel”, soapstone, stucco, stone, and brick All of the heaters are designed to burn dry cordwood rapidly and have a channel system that extracts the heat. We build heaters in new homes and also retrofit masonry heaters into existing homes. My own heater was retrofitted into my home. We also build wood fired bake ovens and cook stoves
