I'm looking for advice on putting in a rocket stove for an existing house. I have a concern that the house will smell like smoke. Was also hoping someone could give advice on how I should proceed on this project (buying design? Where to get professional help or websites that have quality instruction).
Ya the websites Roy posted are good, and Ernie and Erica also sellRMH plans as well.
However, are you interested in a rocket stove or a rocket mass heater? From my understanding RMHs maybe have a bit of smokeback but a rocket stove shouldn't have any more smokeback then a regular wood stove.
The book Rocket Mass Heaters by Ianto Evans is also very good and also includes how to build rocket stoves and pocket rockets.
She still doesn't approve of my superhero lifestyle. Or this shameless plug:
