The reduced outer end 91 of a grille section is arranged between a pair of ears of a cover section, whereby the latter may be shifted independently of a grille section. When the cover sections are closed they are mounted on the grille sections. Each cover section has its outer face formed with a pair of spaced aligned abutment members IDI formed of a body part I02 having its outer end provided with an oiTset extension I03. The cover sections also constitute supports for various objects when such sections are extended laterally with respect to the front and rear of body I6, and when so extended they will appear as shown by Figure 2, that is sections 99, 99 will be supported on flanges 34, 89 of members I2, I5 and with the extension I03 of the abutment members IOI arranged under and coacting with the flanges 89, 90 for bracing the cover sections. When the cover sections are extended to constitute supports, they are arranged below the upper end of body I6.

With reference to Figures '7, 8, 9 and 10, the modified form of outdwoor stove structure, in accordance with this invention is generally indicated at I05, and it includes a chimney I06, a stove body I01 having sides, front, bottom and rear built in the lower portion of the chimney, and an oven I08 arranged within the chimney above and rearwardly of the body I01. Certain The stove strucof the elements of the oven have built into the chimney.

The chimney I06 may be formed of courses of brick or stone, cement, concrete or other suitable masonry and it includes a pair of side walls I09, H9 of like form, a bridge or arch I II, a front Wall I I2, a rear wall II3 of greater height than said front wall, a bottom wall H4 and a base H5. The rear part II I of the bottom wall H4 is of greater height than its front part 4'. Each side wall consists of an upper part H6, an intermediate part I I1 and a lower part I I8. The part H6 is of greater height than the part H1. The part I I6 is of less height than the part I I8. The part H1 is of less width and height than the part H8. The latter is of greater thickness than the parts H6, H1. The part II1 extends out \vardly from the part H6. The part H8 extends outwardly from and is laterally oifset with respect to part II1, as at H9.

The wall I I2 merges into the front of the parts H6 and into the rear of the top of the parts H1. The bridge or arch I I I merges into the top of the parts H1 and into the lower portion of the front of the wall H2. The parts 1 merge into the rear portion of the top of the parts I I8. The rear ends of the side walls merge into front face of the rear wall H3. The lower ends of the side and rear walls merge into the upper face of the bottom wall I I4. The latter merges into the base H5. The base H5 is laterally offset with respect to the sides and front of the bottom wall 4. The manner of setting up the walls of the chimney provides the latter with an L-shaped chamber I 20 having a horizontally disposed lower portion with its rear part of less height than its forward part and a vertically disposed upper portion extended from the rear part of the hori zontal portion. The latter is open at its top and front and closed at the rear. The vertical portion is open at its front, partly closed at its top and closed at its rear. Certain of the walls of the chimney are so correlated to form a flue I2! opening at its lower end into the open top part of the said vertical portion of chamber I20. The level of the part II I of the bottom H4 is to be slightly above the grate within the stove body. There is arranged in the chimney structure a smoke ledge I2I in the form of an angle iron which projects forwardly from and is secured to wall H3 and it is also secured to the top of the part H4 of bottom H4.

The stove body I01 is of the same construction as the stove body I6, with this exception, that the inner sections of the side and rear members are not employed. The side members of the body I01 are indicated at I22, I23, the front member of body I01 is designated at I24 and the rear or back member of body I01 at I25. The members I22, I23 correspond in construction to the outer sections of the side members I3, I4. The

portions thereof front member 624 corresponds in construction to the front member 2. The member I25 corresponds in construction to the front member I2. The member I25 corresponds in construction to the outer section of the back member 5 with the exception that it is not provided with opening 86 and damper 81. The stove body I01 includes a pair of oppositely disposed cover sections I26, I21 for the grille I29, but in lieu of the cover section I21 functioning as a support when it is removed from over a grille section it provides the door for the oven I00.

The oven I08, in addition to its door provided by the cover section I21 includes a bottom I29, a

back wall I30, a top wall I3I and a pair of side walls I32. The bottom I29 is provided by a rearwardly extending horizontally disposed plate I33 mounted at its front end on the upper flange 39 of member I25. The plate I33 at its sides is formed with ribbed offset flanges I34 which are embedded in the upper portions of the inner faces (Figure of the parts H8 of the side walls of the chimney. The plate I33 is of a length to extend to align with the inner face of wall H2 and is formed with apertures I35 in proximity to its rear edge. The back wall I of the oven is formed from a vertically disposed plate I36 having studs I31 on its bottom edge engaging in the apertures I35. The bottom edge of plate I bears upon the upper face of plate I33. The sides of plate I35 are embedded in the inner faces of the parts H6, H1, H8 of the sides of the chimney. The top portion of plate I35 is embedded in the lower end of the front wall H2. The top wall I3I of the oven is provided by the lower face of the bridge or arch III and the lower end of the wall H2. The side walls I32 of the oven are formed by the inner faces of the parts H1, H8 of the chimney. The rear face of the plate B36 is flush with the inner face of the wall H2. The oven i8 is arranged in the vertical portion of the chamber I20. The open front of the vertical portion of chamber I20 is the open front of the oven and which is to be closed by the cover section I21.

The stove body I01 is arranged between the forward portion of the side walls of the horizontally disposed portion'of the chamber I20, and it is not only built in such side walls, but also into the said bottom part IM of the chimney structure. The part II I forms the bottom of chamber I20. When body 501 is built-in the parts IE8 of the side walls of the chimney, the inner faces of such parts close the side members I22, I23 of the stove body I01. The high part II of the bottom H4 closes the member I25 up to about two inches above the grate. Access is had to the top of stove body I01 from that part of the open top of chamber I20 forwardly of the vertical portion of said chamber, and access is had to the front of stove body I01 from the open front of chamber I20. When the stove body I01 is builtin the bottom of the chimney, the front of said body is substantially flush with the front of the lower portions of the sides of the chimney. The top and front of the stove body are permanently exposed.

It will again be stated that the construction of the stove body I 01 is the same as the construction "of the stove body I6 with this single exception that the stove body I01 does not in clude the inner sections of the side and back members of the stove body I6 and the damper.

Preferably the outer sections of the rear and side members of the stove body I6 will be of cast iron and their inner sections of sheet metal of the desired thickness.
