So I'm new, but have 'the book' on order hopefully delivered soon so I'll be a bit more up with what the terminology etc is.

I'm looking at moving into a fairly derelict farmhouse and think getting the central kitchen area heated with a rocket stove, and most of the rest of the house if it works as well as I would like! However, I'm nervous about it having had no experience fo it before, so my question for now is have people built them for outdoor use? Where I live currently is lovelt in the evenings until about 7pm when the sun goes from the garden, could I install a rocket stove to provide heated seating and also be able to cook on it barbecue style? Seems possible but wanted to know of anyone with experience of this. Also seems a good dry run where the finish can be a bit less tidy and mistakes won't demilish a newly bought house!

thanks in advance

Chris Bond ! Go For It ! (book in Hand !) Generally you should build your 1st prototype outdoors any way!

From the Pemies Toolbox near the top of this page you can find the search button and do a Google search ( Within Permies.com ) and get lots
of information on Outdoor Rockets !

Please be sure you clearly understand the difference between rocket stoves (outdoor Cooking) and Pocket Rockets (outdoor space heating )
And rocket mass heaters RMH, that are Made to be used indoors like Russian/Scandinavian Masonry Heaters costing 10$ of thousands more !

For the good of the craft ! Think like fire! Flow like Gas ! Don't be the Marshmallow ! Your questions, comments are solicited and welcome !

Big AL !

I would love to learn more about having an outdoors rocket stove that could also make some heat for comfort on cool nights. I know this sort of thing is being explored at the innovator's event at wheaton laboratories. . .

So I've had some more progress in the planning department, but will have to take some pictures and do some serious pruning before putting my plans into action! And I'm also working my way through The Book, really good read so far and full of essential information. Think I can do a full RMH to give me a lovely warm place to sit in the cooler evenings so can still cook outdoors, with mass already in place though probaby not ideal, that's why I need the pictures for your input! Also need to get scrounging for the parts, mainly the exhaust pipe and barrel, most of the rest I either have or can get my hands on easily. I'll keep updating as I progress...
