I was on the "Build it Solar" website a couple of months ago and I saw this document under wood burning on the page. The author, was given the task of designing and easy to build heater that would burn efficiently
and utilize existing dead trees from the forest of Maine. the guy put some time into burning of wet wood and has a lot of great data

I may have been slightly misunderstood. I'm not trying to improve on Peters van den berg's batch stove. I agree hes put a lot of time tweaking this batch to run perfectly and by the way I love this idea. Watching the flames through the glass on this thing are phenomenal. I was just looking for opinions as to if you thought my idea would even work. Also after posting I realized I should have started a new thread instead of interrupting this one.
Gentleman please keep up the good work. I will continue following the batch box project very closely.

I have been following this thread now for a few days. (took that long to catch up) I tried to read all of the posts on the donkey forums as well. I have a project in mind using an old wood stove with a side exit
flue. The flue is 6" diameter. The stove is a suburban manufacturing. has an air jacket for forced air as well. the bottom of the firebox is lined w/ firebrick.
So my idea is to shed the jacket and gut the stove to the very thin firebox. then, line the whole inside with the clay sand mortar and firebrick. in a similar orientation to the batch box. either remove the original exhaust flange from the stove or try to use refractory to line it. then it would exit into a perlite clay insulated riser and from there proceed like a normal rocket stove. Before i dump my limited time into this, i would like some feedback from the experts of the forum. basically, i want to know if it would be a total waste and i should just build the rmh from ianto's book, or if this has theoretical legs to stand on.

This is my first time posting on this forum. I have watched these videos several times and I think they are great. The first video is about a rmh in Canton NY. I also live in the Adirondack region. I am wondering if someone could explain the legal process if any to installing an rmh in NY. Any info is appreciated.
