The rocket mass heater is up and running and it's quite the inferno! It will be quite interesting to add some enhancements to it in the future. I'm hoping to cover the entire unit and pump the heat under the floor to increase the thermal mass. And, make it so it can burn either wood or pellets!

Today I finished building and fired up the rocket mass heater for the geodesic dome. Ironically, it's January and we're having record breaking warm temperatures in the 50's but I couldn't resist and started it up. I will do a full video about the construction in the future, but wanted to share a few pictures of it. This heater is a bit different than some you may see. I wanted to be sure there was enough drafting in the chimney so I doubled up the barrels.
