I like that design. I think that I would lean more towards one of these than a Rocket Mass heater.
Thanks for sharing that.
Hello This is a very nice design and quite beautiful, i was wondering about its wood consumption though, one of the main points to a RMH to me at least is the amount of wood it uses. is this design also as frugal on wood consumption.?
That is much like a Russian Masonry Heater that has a long history. Before I saw the rocket stove concept several years ago, I'd been planning to build Russian MH for a lot of years. Searched Russian MH and got this link.
There is a lot of similarities in the rocket MH and the Russian MH.
Leave it to Aprovecho to lay claim to inventing the Russian Masonry Heater.
I like their design with the oven.. It wouldn't be all that hard to make a rocket MH that had a stove top and oven - the barrel isn't the only way to build a rocket MH - just seems to be the common (inexpensive) way to go.
I think the tiny house folks should look into putting the mass below floor level instead of in the room.

Len, if you have any plans which include used firebrick or other used brick and you're planning a trip to Victoria give me a call. I seldom sell the firebrick and quite often when I'm on a tight time schedule other brick goes to waste as well. Sometimes there are good ceramic flues as well. Stop by and load up for free.

I like what this man has done.
