Hello Ianto thanks for your reply! I appreciate your insight into the need for the height of the chimney. it sounds good. I'm just so confused - watching videos and reading comments on the Liberator - with no mass to radiate heat long after the burn and  just a loud hissing 700 degree thing in my house. Do you have any comments on the Liberator from your wonderful expertise?

Wullow - it's been a few months since you first posted about using kindling in the Liberator. Is it working out any better for you? I am thinking of purchasing one and was also planning on using kindling, pinecones etc. Is it any more efficient than standard stoves?

David Merkel thank you for the wonderful video of ondol and hanok. WOW we have so much to learn and do better. red clay heats AND cools better than anything? Paper doors breathe and insulate better than glass.

Hi Helene! I've been following your post, as I am just about to purchase a Liberator also! Hoping I love it. Now - I'm a novice - just been following the rocket stove posts for a couple of years - and particularly the ondol from Korea  - so this is a question from a novice and I hope someone can jump in and help.
In my understanding, if you have the stove pipe winding through a bench - for heat - then that stove pipe should end up exiting the house at approximately bench level. This is the way ondol works.  In fact for a few years I have been trying to duplicate it - with a lower level kitchen and fire smoke/heat winding its way under the floorboards of the house. If anyone at Permies has done this I would love to find out about it. I only have my Korean friends feeding me info about their homes and especially their older country houses.

If we were to create this system, why would we even need additional stovepipe going up out the roof? seems that is dividing the circulation and confusing the system. I've also sent this question to the good Liberator folks and look forward to their answer. Their instruction manual specifically calls for installation of a standard stovepipe going up. At this time I am not planning to add a bench or mass but just use the Liberator by itself but am interested in the possibilities.
