Recently built a yurt with a RHM inspired by the fisherman's daughter post. It's somewhat functional not nearly enough though. It's a 6inch system and I can't seem to close it much with out it choking then smoking in the yurt. In the book he talks about being able to close it only leaving a inch or two hole and that being enough air to pull in but for me it's more like 12 inches and it can't be more then 1/3 full. I'm close to pulling the barrel off I feel like the vermiculite we used as insulation could be clogging the barrel and affecting the draw. Anyhow does this seem like a lack of draw issue or something else?
Joe Doc : I am familiar with the pictures of the RMH / Yurt combination you are talking about, but without pictures it would be impossible to help much,
is this a vertical inside feed or an outdoor Horizontal feed ?
As a general rule, in floor RMHs are a very hard First build, and multiple exhausts are also extremely hard to get right!
You will need to re-post the original Forum Thread, along with your sketches and pictures, and very few people ANYwhere will have much first hand knowledge !
Good luck Big AL !
