Help! I just bought a 1987 School Bus and started living in it .... but it's cold!
Can anyone here please help me design Rocket stove mass heater for my Skoolie?
I have no experience with this and want to build it this weekend, latest!
I'm happy to pay for a design or consulting...
My exhaustive search foranyone who has succesfully employed a has turned up empty.
The closest I could find was this: http://jefffaye.blogspot.com/2011/03/bus-blog-19-stove.html but it's not really a Rocket Stove Mass Heater.
Rocket mass heaters, by their nature are HEAVY. Can the floor of your bus stand the weight?
The link you referred to has one monumental horror, the flue pipe. All those kinks are a disaster, with no access for cleaning. It might be better to have a heat exchanger chamber, but it needs access to all the flue sections.
The blog shows just a steel box stove, but I would only have one if it had a glass door, so you can see what's going on.
If you have no experience, IMO you need to get someone who has. It's not the sort of thing to learn from a forum in less than a week.
