Hi, I am new and excited but ready to get my hands dirty and try this out.

I am designing my own home and settled on the idea of a Rocket Mass Stove to cook on and feed the underfloor firebrick flues of each of two 3x3sqm sleeping rooms, one 3x3sqm shower/toilet room and one 4x4sqm sleeping room.The rooms will be raised from the cooking area as with most ondol/hypocaust systems but with the stove situated in the centre of the square shaped floorplan (the sleeping rooms and shower/toilet room form two sides of the build - North and East) (the living space will be a square shape using the South and West sides of the house).

I have even considered that because I placed the shower/toilet room at the South East corner that itself my have a small ondol/RMS of it's own, separate to the two 3x3sqm sleep rooms and the one 4x4sqm sleep room at the North East corner of the house.

I am concerned with building an ondol/RMS that is not large enough to heat all the sleeprooms for the colder nights, and certainly didn't want to face having to dismantle the whole thing,and start over; is this the way everyone else has done it, or do you all kind of know what size of burner will heat a certain size of floor space?

Any helpful info is greatly appreciated.

I did read the FAQ's but could not find a way to calculate the plan.

Thanks.
