Greetings from Denmark!
First time posting - Long time lurker.
I am building a RMH cob bed/couch. 8" Duct 55 gallon system - By the book.(..or rather pdf.)
The flooring in my small cabin is set in two levels. The lower level flooring is bare ground. The upper level is concrete slab with a wooden floor on top.
I have build the "firebox" on the bare ground level and I am hoping to place the thermal battery on the raised wooden floor.
I´m concerned with fire hazards and I would greatly appreciate any input:
1. Since I don´t have the firebox on the wooden flooring,- how would you recommend insulating between the wooden floor and the thermal battery? (I´m hoping for less insulation than 4 inches, less expenses and less work)
2. I could remove the suspended wooden floor where the thermal mass will be and build it directly on the concrete slab (more mass). Is this the better option? (Again, I´m hoping for less expenses and less work.)
3. I´m planning to elevate the horizontal flue, by 1½ feet, immediately after it leaves the exhaust. Will this create problems with airflow?
Thank you in advance.
