Awesome thank you

Just a quick update for you guys who gave me advice. I put more rock in the bench and had to knock the feed tube down one brick. The feed tube was too tall and it was creating draft issues. I took the top layer of bricks off and now it rockets right away even on a cold start. No drafting issues... no back drafts. The hound slept right on the top.

Im almost done with it. Just have to dry the cob out a bit, get some metal tape for the seams, patch up the spots at the top of the feed tube, and clean the rocks and slate a bit more.

Linseed oil after it dries???

Good to note for when I build one in the house.

So.... I'm testing different chimney configurations and I think I found one that works great without having to cut the roof. The stove went rockety right off the bat with the cob being still pretty wet and the wood being not quite dry enough. Very little smoke coming from chimney. I assume most of it is from a mix of damp wood/stove and the core not being up to temp yet. Obviously there are some details to iron out, namely heat flashing behind the barrel and trimming the pipe down that goes out the window while also closing off and flashing the window hole.

I was curious though about the pipe that runs over the barrel. I didn't that because I figured the barrel would heat the pipe causing the air inside the pipe to rise. Im assuming this will create more suction upstream causing less issues with cold starting. I could be wrong but feel free to chime in with any opinions.

Feed tube is 6x8 inches. It's slightly smaller than optimum for 8 inch pipe but ran pretty good during my test fire.

Awesome thanks. It is an 8 inch. I plan on collecting some more rocks tomorrow. I also have a 2'x4' piece of granite counter top i may set on top and cob over it.

Finishing cobbing my first mass heater but can't find a recommended thickness of the cob over the exhaust pipes. Anyone have any recommendations? How much do you guys use?

Thanks for the replies. My greenhouse is 12x12 and shares a wall with the house. It also houses a 1200 gallon water tank which takes up most of the space so im trying to keep the rmh as small as possible. Was experimenting with mock ups in there and got the wheels turning but couldn't find anything in my books that deals with the effects of differing the depths and widths inside the heater except for the burn tunnel should always be smaller than or equal to the other dimensions.
