Hello everyone. I am not new to the site but this is my first post. I have wondered about this ever since discovering rocket mass stoves through Paul Wheaton's videos. Is it possible to install a rocket mass stove on the main floor of a 2 story home (with basement)? And if so would the floor need extra support for the weight of the mass? Also, would it heat the 2nd story? I know these are a lot of questions but I really have no idea about these things and would never install one of these stoves without them being answered. But I think the rocket stoves are awesome! Thanks for any input!

Daniel Bird : Please goto> you may still be able to see 3/8ths of a video of an earlier Ernie And Erica Wisner build, the
complete post production video has been on sale for 3 weeks and I have expected this teaser to be taken down anyway now ! While it does not give as much
detail on the video on bracing your floors it does come with a full set of written plans that does cover it, so the video comes with a full set of plans worth $35,
there is a rebate of $10 dollars if you enter 'burns ' when prompted ! There is more General information at> hope this helps, time is
running out

Full disclosure, I am a Facebook friend of village video, and my wife martha and I are personal fans of Ernie and Erica Wisner who are moderators on the forum,
AND I don't get a dime ! BIG AL
