It's big, put your mattress on it when finished!

Will using a pipe reducer somewhere in your design, from 8in - 6in increase flow-vacume, i.e create more and faster heat?

Having the ability to test both pipe sizes before mudding it in place an option? You can always recut the roof to 8in it 6in doesn't work.

Looks Good!!!

The size of the burn chamber and heat riser need to be of a smaller diameter than the exhaust. The burn chamber must be the tightest part of the unit. 6 inch exhaust would be of a smaller diameter than our burn chamber and our 8 inch heat riser, and therefor restrict flow. 6 inch exhaust would cause the stove NOT to draw. Larger is fine, smaller is no good. Remember, hot gasses want to flow into expanding spaces.

Ah...so the reverse of my thinking. Vid mentioned concern about 8in pipe, thought you were talking about exhaust. I was thinking in water terms, increasing velocity. So you're thinking 10in exhaust? Thanks for the education!

Your thinking was perfectly reasonable in regards to water.

To clarify, my concern over the 8 inch system was not draw/flow related. Every measurement of the guts of my system were very carefully designed to optimize draw. The concern is in the length of the exhaust. We only have 15 ft of exhaust, as opposed to the recommended 30-40. ( as we had to cut the size of our thermal storage bed/bench in half due to material and time constraints ). Since 30 ft of 8 inch exhaust is needed to maximize heat absorption, my concern is that we will be wasting good heat when we terminate our 15 ft exhaust. A 6 inch system, with the proportional burn chamber and heat riser, only requires 20 ft of 6 inch exhaust to capture all the heat. In my case with limited room for exhaust, hindsight would have had me design and build a smaller 6 inch system, rather than vent an 8 inch system too soon, while there is still plenty of good heat to be captured.

All in all, the 8 incher will work fine, however, it will burn more wood than necessary, and waste a little of the heat.

Live n' learn!

I got you, thanks for explaining. Noticed your manifold section has a place for additional pipe. Any chance of using similar piece on backside to add additional exhaust next spring? Build it in two phases? Put a final layer of cob when sections are joined? Anyway, just a thought fwiw....

Got our first taste of snow this am. Not much, seasons changing...

Good Luck!
