      Someday someone may kill you with your own gun, but they should have to
      beat you to death with it because it is empty.

          This basic design is used through-out europe, usually there is a cast iron door and a glazed tile front. Coal is usually burnt. They work better than a fire place and you can touch the exterior with-out getting branded. The thermal mass holds the heat but It is difficult to regulate the burn rate and it is hard to clean the air chambers. Dispite all that it is easier and cheaper to build than a metal stove.

            ABSOLUTELY - I heard a lot a great things about those Russian fireplaces.
            I have also seen similar with heated water pipe coiling in the direction of the heat in your picture. Since your water heater is always heating, it circulates that hot water through the wall heating and 'recycling' it back to the water tank. So you are getting double use of the heat from your hot water tank.
            My son just got back from Finland and they use what looks like a giant rocket stove. It looks like a 3 ft diameter pipe that goes from floor to ceiling in a corner of the room, uses very little wood. I saw pictures of them but for the life of me I can't see a vent pipe.
