Evan is putting on some low cost workshops here - like $50 for a week - where you can try out heaps of rocket mass heaters:

Or, you can just come out and, say, stay in the tipi for a few days, or one of the other buildings with a rocket mass heater:

I've seen about 7 or 8 of these online already. I've been all over the highway, like horse tracks .

I really like the 8" batch box, near the top of your list.

Is your lab here in Canada?

So I bought the dvd sets and Love the info off of them.
As I'm going through these i don't see something that I'm  curious if anyone has tried. Most of the piping runs on an incline then to the stack.
And all the pipes run in a mass for sitting on , etc. Has anyone tried to do a vertical mass against a wall?
My thinking is if someone had a basement like a dirt floor basement, running the pipes so they zig zag up the sides of the wall, then packed in with cob, masonary work or what have you creating a radiant heat in the basement that warms the floor above or something to that effect.

kinda....but i was thinking with the duct work starting at the bottom and winding its way up to the top inside kinda like an old wooden marble machine toy, then filling in the wall with stone or something. instead of an giant open center.
