The stove i have i modified because the air controls where crap it was an air tight with a glass of course the glass broke replaced  with metal plate and gasket I removed the oem baffle it had tiny holes for cleaning the glass replaced with a different baffle
built a thermostatic coil (opens as temperature drops closes when to hot) aka auto damper before the mods it would be to hot or to cold now it works great
I know with rocket stoves you can get away from the firewood splitting,use less fuel and much more
the gears in my head are trying to figure out how to implement it into this small wood frame cabin im wondering if i could put the J tube under the house and the business ends come though the floor keeping the burn chamber away from combustibles as im thinking heat rises so i would get the heat + exhaust/thermal mass inside  
but I dunno how long the J tube can be maybe dumb idea?
I know with the current stove it can run you out it can get very hot inside I dont want to overkill with too big of a stove its  only a 20-30 cabin

A cob bench or even bed would be possible
Would you happen to have or know of media or reading material on such a setup?
im very curious on the heat/hot water exchange the J tube would get way to hot for a coil there maybe coil inside the drum or would it cut down on airflow/draft?

Hello i'm new here but have found myself reading permies/mother earth news often
i have a few basic questions on rocket stoves
i live in a 20x30 cabin its currently heated with a small wood stove 6 inch pipe
the cabin is built on a slope part of the cabin is near the ground and other part is on cinder block stacks about 5 feet high joist are 2x12's 2 foot between joist and rather thick osb sub floor
what im interested in doing is heating water and home with a rocket stove my main question is would a rocket stove be ran long enough to really heat water and would it be two heavy for a wood built floor?
should i just do a coil around stove pipe and do a thermo syphon setup with current wood stove?
i have seen where a rocket stove acts as a heat battery and dont need to run all day im in eastern kentucky so i'm thinking a rocket stove wouldn’t run long enough to get water very hot
the current wood stove nearly runs you out i have very little trouble heating the place up it can reach 90+ F inside with the stove going
