Very excited to light it up this week and post some photos of the burn. Our riser is experimenting with the partial octagon shape that was experimented with in the Mallorca workshop with Peter--visit here http://donkey32.proboards.com/thread/2364/rocket-heater-build-peter-mallorca
I love what you did with your rafter ends scalloped. [in the "clay plaster, brown coat on back wall" picture] What width did the ends end up at? 2x6 width?? 2x4??
I checked your yearly weather for Victor. Balmy winters. Your frost penetration foundation line must be minimal.
