Hello,

I'm living in a rented house. To minimize the changes to make to the house I was wondering, is there a maximum to the number of turns andd bends en to the lenght of the exhaust? Of ause I needd it to have enough draft to get the fire burning sideways.

Thanks before hand for any information.

I'm still gathering information. Critical for me is that I can heat my living room (about 3,7 x 7,6 meters) and that I can place it in such a way that I can get the exhaust outside with minimal changes to the contruction of the house. I'm hoping the exhaust can be savelly long enough to feed it through a smal window in the back room. (replacing the glass with board and feeding the exhaust through.

It sounds like an accident waiting to happen (board replacing glass in window): I'd suggest looking into an efficient manufactured stove along the lines of the Zaug or Wiseway with your landlords' consent and cooperation. Many efficient units are available in the EU...you listed metric units...

Why 'an accident waiting to happen' I've read and seen that the exhaust tenperature is pretty low and of course I would use fireretardant material. As long as I don't change anything to the contruction of the home I think I can install a rocket stove.
Thanks for the links, the gave some extra information. And yes I'm living in Europe.
