First I will say, bigger is better when getting your heat into the horizontal pipes.
I think that leaving as much area open over the manifold as possible is the better choice.
I can not tell how big your transition area is going to be from the photos.
It must be large! It should also (if possible) have a clean out access and an ash collection area.  

Hi Thomas,
thank You so much for your reply and for your explanation, I really appreciated it and you were very helpful in carrying out this beautiful project :-).

I will continue to take photos and document the entire construction of the rocket stove.
Thank you and have a good day :-)

Hi Guys,
we are building our first rocket mass heater, and we need an help for one technical information please.

we would like to know if is better to build an air chamber under the barrel , all around the chimney, connected to the manifold or if it's better to fill the base with clay all the way up to the level of the barrel, and connected to the manifold with only one point for air exit.
Hope it would be clear by these photos and that someone of you could help us.
thank you and have a nice day!

hello everybody!
We are a couple of dreamers who are investing their time, their energy and their lives, in creating a small vegetarian ecovillage in southern Italy.
We are looking for vegetarians / vegans interested in a woofing experience in our small Permaculture center.
You will find us halfway between Bari (30 minutes by car) and Matera (40 minutes by car).  In exchange for 4 hours of your time, we offer an experience in close contact with Nature, the Earth, our small nursery laboratory, the care of fruit trees in the foodforest area, the synergistic vegetable garden, the social life of goats,  sheep, hens, ducks and of course our horse;  a healthy cuisine in harmony with the vegetarian lifestyle and with the goodness of the extra virgin olive oil we produce;  a place where you can sleep and rest in respect of yours and our privacy, and an unlimited amount of beautiful sunsets among the olive trees.
We are also looking for other couples and families (always vegetarian), who want to invest and participate in our vegetarian ecovillage project to be carried out in this land full of energy, beautiful ideas and advantageous prices.

Thank you all :-)

Nature-loving, permaculture-inspired, home-educating, woodworking, creative vegan family (two adults, 11-year-old daughter, 2 well-behaved dogs) seeking a way to live in a more natural environment where we can develop our permaculture dreams.

Our plans include yurt-living amidst nature and the creation of a space where we can invite others to enjoy simple-living/yoga/vegan/writing/art and craft retreats.

If you have land that you need caretakers for or want to share, where we could bring our dreams to life, do let us know!!!

Would love to connect with anyone who has any ideas... our thought behind this ad is that if you can't find what you're looking for, perhaps you need to 'put it out there' so someone else can find you!

Hi Alice, I've just sent you an email from Italy
We are looking for people that help us to let our dream comes true. We are two, a woman, 28 years old and a man, 40 years old, we live with many animals, we are vegan, so we love and respect them so much!
We love permaculture and we made sinergic garden all the time.
We have not child, but we want so much to realize in our place a green school, a place where kids can learn in the nature, from their parents and from us and from all the peole that have something beautiful to teach.

I hope to hear from you soon :-)

Hi David,
Fortunately I do not have these problems, except with the foxes. They are very clever!
And you?
Do you have problems with boars?

Have you truffles in your land?

Hi David,
this is really a beautiful place to learn, have fun and improving yourself

I saw the link. Congratulations for the wonderful work you are doing! (and for the beautiful place you live)
maybe one day we could organize an exchange of seeds

like you, I'm always looking for plants and trees.

We currently have these types of fruit trees: olive and almond trees, apricots, plums, cherries, peaches, mulberry, strawberry, jujube, walnuts, hazelnuts, figs, lemons, oranges, mandarins, apples, elderberries, carob, pink pepper and many of acacia trees, maritime pine and leyland.

different kind of plants: rosehip, sunflowers, onions (white and red), carrots, chicory, tomatoes, basil, mustard, celery, radishes, chicory, eggplant, zucchini many, marigolds and nasturtiums, rosemary, thyme, celery, chard, mint, sage, oregano, potatoes, pepperoni of all kinds, strawberries , arugula, lettuces, lavender, beans and green beans, and plenty of clay balls scattered full of lots of kinds of plants and trees which I hope will bear fruit soon

Vanda, the "goat mum", has given birth for the first time this year and so i decided to not milk to avoid stress. But in future we'd like.

We don't have bees yet, but if I learn how to handle them, with the acacia trees i think it would be a good idea.
