Working with Tony was an education. I found his extensive heater building experience very helpful when placing our heater in the best situation for our heating needs. His thorough understanding of his Russian inspired stove allowed him to alter the heater design for our limited space with its confined ceiling height. We were very pleased with his background in historic building arts creating a stove that was unique with an established finish. Thank you Tony, well done.

Tony built a Russian masonry heater in our home in 2008. This masterful piece of art and craftsmanship heats virtually our entire home. And for just a little more than the price of the standard fireplace. We received superb customer service and found Tony very easy to work with. Tony has become a good friend and we have had him back to our home to assist on several other projects. It's great to have such a dependable contractor working on our dream home. Thanks again Tony!

"We love the masonry heater and the wonderful warmth it brings all winter! We built a large stone finished heater for our primary heat source. The natural stone is really a joy to look at and we especially enjoy gazing at each and every fire.
The efficiency is fantastic; We burned just under 2 chord from October through early April our first year of heating our single level 1200 SF home. We have gas backup furnace, but we never seem to use it for heat, only for the range, and the clothes dryer.
Tony was great to work with and is a professional, punctual, knowledgeable, and friendly mason that we would hire again or recommend to others. The heat it puts out is pleasant, even, and steady and does not dry out the house like all-metal stoves can, so no humidifier is ever needed. It's also nice to lean up against the hot stones.
A single (2) hour burn will continue to radiate into the next day. Mileage may vary, especially depends on the dryness of the wood.
The best part is that you can just light it and not mess with it until the end, if you want. But, it is often hard to resist making adjustments/playing and trying to get the flames to make green and blue colors.".

We commissioned Maine Masonry Craft in 2012 to build our 3 sided natural stone fireplace and were extremely happy with the results. Aesthetically, the fireplace is just beautiful and where Maine Masonry far exceeded our expectations was the attention to detail. Most contractors were stumped or unable to tackle our project, yet Maine Masonry was able to troubleshoot and provide multiple solutions to build our fireplace economically and make it look and function incredibly. I highly recommend Maine Masonry Craft for their professionalism and because of their passion and love of the trade, directly translates to the high standard of work they produce. Thanks again Tony!
