Virginia Masonry Stove Building Code

Hi everyone,

Here are the Virginia Masonry Building code specs for your general perusal and edification. I think the section of concern to Rocket Mass Heaters is "SECTION R1002 MASONRY HEATERS"

I may be willing to go thru the process of building my RMH to attempt to meet these specs, and getting a permit and inspection to cover fire insurance concerns.

If anyone sees any points of concern or potential blockers, that would be great feedback.

Thank you much, Douglas
