can a rocket mass heater work on a second story safely or does it have to be built on slab foundation?
Justion, with this, go for batch box and bell. It wuld be apropver easier i think. And it would be easier and weight less! I'll take care of you later, as i'm off to work in a few minutes.

Here is what I have. We are in zone 8 pacific nw. I am looking at heating about 1200 sq ft. The main rooms are important. If it does not make it to the back bedrooms, no worries.
I will get an engineer out to determine if we can take the load once I know what I am talking about for weight. Also, I am not worried about code/permit at this time.
I guess I am also concerned about building this on wood. Would it get to hot? Or is the main concern the load? Do you have to insulate between the floor and the rmh?
I want to build it along the wall with the wood stove somewhere. The stove in the photo is shot, doesn't put off heat and I should not be burning in it. I need a better option before next winter.
Thanks for all the info!
