Here are some screen shots of a sketchup I did for the layout of the Love shacks RMH. What do you guys think about it? Any Ideas that would improve the design?
Let me know what you think.

So this is going to be a pebble style RMH that is going to be as compact as possible width wise and as long as the love shack is lengthwise. The picture is showing the layout sans pebbles, Walls and door. It is going to be a 6 inch system.

Nope.

I was just saying that if you go just througfh the wall, you should prolong the pipe upwards untill you are above the nearest tall object. Usualy the apex of the roof. And it's better to use insulated tube outside.
