I wonder if I could cut an opening in the front of the body of the stove near the top and weld in an oven box out of some 14 ga steel and put a door on the front or would this make the air flow not work very well insode?

I do love the look of your heater. It looks a lot like a regular wood stove. It is by far my favorite design that I have seen yet. Is there anything behind it?

Like I said, I am not familiar with rocket stoves but if you could get that to pass code, then you would have a great replacement for conventional wood stoves. You definitely need a surround, at least in my area, for free standing stoves and fireplaces.
Both of my jobs are in sales, so I tend to think that way.

Is it possible to have any idea about what it cost you ?
(of course I know it will in the end depend on what one can get for free or second hand, but just to get an idea...)
And also: how heavy is it?

As I saw it outside (on your pics) before you put it in your garage, I thought it would have been somehow lighter to carry...
Some pocket rocket (I do not mean the tiny camping ones!) are certainly lighter, and not so strong.
