Think I posted this in the wrong subject, anyhow here it is under RMH.



Hi Guys (First post)

Been here on and off for about 6 months now and finally wanting to make a RMH for my green house.

Have been doing some reading and came up with a design that fits into my green house, but since all you people have built RMH's and made the mistakes, I thought it would to smart to post my plans (Basic) here to allow any design issues to be ironed out first.

the major differences are;
I wanted to move away from using the 44 gallon barrel. I'm not quite sure if this is allowed? (I can re integrate it in but just wanted something safe to touch incase my kids get in there. )
As I understand it, the barrel assists in the cooling of the gases helping the draft pull the gasses down. Will my design work without the barrel.

here are some images



regards

Matt
