The first RMH I built was at Cob Cottage and it was all used red brick and a used barrel and ducting, nothing fancy at all. Other than making sure those bricks were level for the heat riser, it went very quick. Then we slapped some cob over the bricks to seal it up. Since it was a demo build we didn't do the bench portion or get fancy on insulation but if you plan to build something in your home make sure to consider how to protect the floor if needed and proper draft. You don't want to be trying to figure it out when it's cold and corner-cutting starts looking good.
