Can I work out something inside an apartment?

Hi everyone!

In the apartment I'm living I have a big living room (so much air to heat up!!) with a fireplace. The fireplace sucks... but I guess you all know that already
I've been thinking in buying a wooden stove and connect it to the fireplace exit, at least it would get me more heat inside the room.

Today while I was browsing the forums I was asking myself: would it be possible to build a rocket heater inside the living room and connect it to the fireplace exit too? Probably not so easy, but it would be a fun experiment, and way cheaper.

Any tips?

Nuno; A few things you must know, How big (dia.) is the chimney you want to use, and how much weight can your floor support ?

Hi thomas!
I dont know about the weight support, its an apartment building.. but I also dont want a huge cob construction here

The diameter should be around 15cm (5.9in?) it should be enough because a guy from the wood stove shop told me it was ok to install a regular exhaust pipe in there
