I lived in Germany for about six years and was building a house there.  I wanted to put in an adobe fireplace with a bake oven in the top of it.  I moved back home before finishing the house (divorce), and this forum is the first time I have given any thought to that again. I mean, my current husband and I talk about building a house, and how we want our kitchen to be.  One thing I really would like is a wood burning stove in the kitchen.  I just don't like any of the ones I have seen in the states.  They all look like old fashioned grandma stoves, and I want something much more modern.  So, I wanted to share some pictures with you all, and if you have seen anything like this in the states, please let me know where they sell them! Thanks and enjoy the pics! (just click the link below)


If you click on this link, it will take you to a German website that has a slideshow on the left hand side.  If you scroll down just a bit you will see the word "diashow"...that is German for slideshow.  Click on it and it will take you through the pics one by one.  These are such gorgeous stoves, and kitchens! I want one so bad!!!! Kachelherd (link will open in a new window) and here is another link to the same site, but different slideshow. awesome! Kachelherd 2

Beautiful stoves.  They remind me of my Grandmother's kitchen, only with a modern twist. I never thought this technology would be in again... seems so impractical, though nostalgia wins.

Thank you for sharing these links.  I have bookmarked them both.

I know you posted this a while ago but I saw the word kachelherd and got homesick.  These are gorgeous ovens.  I've always wanted an Aga, for similar reasons.  I hope you find (found) something.
