hi im going to begincollecting materials for my project which is to build a stove which heats an oven a water tank and an underfloor heating. does anyone know of a site that might give info on how big a stove must be to heat a particular amount or area of space or water?? also i am thinkingthat it will  be basically like a rocket stove with dutch oven and that i will heat the upstairs by use of spiralled pipe around the central chimeny this might also be better than an old ranges backboiler for the water but essentially the water and the radiator pipes must be seperate and there must be a mechanism for diverting  from one system to another does anyone know or can imagine an idea to try to do this or an existing thingamebob that might be used for ordinary heating systems which i copuld  use with this? the internal chamber will be of adobe brick or fire brick and the outercasing of cob the tank is an ordinary copper tank and the underfllor heating will be of flexible pipe under cob flooring. also doesanyone know of a link which shows an exhaustrunning through the floor to heat it it was in my friends grammas house in the basque and they used  to keep cows there in the winter buti havent seen anything similar searching the web. thanks when ive collected enough i will begin building in springand if it wroks i willbuild the house around it.....and take photos of course to upload. thanksand hope someone out there can help  with ideas and or critisisms thanks again!!!
