Hi,  Call your building department and ask if they allow permits for masonry heaters.  If you start there then other questions about the building codes can be determined before the build. Always call the RMH a masonry heater with the authorities.

Hi Charlotte,   The Rocket Mass Heater Builder's Guide by the Wisners has a chapter on codes and permitting and some of the things to look out for when dealing with building officials.
 
The government thinks you are too stupid to make your own lightbulb choices. But this tiny ad thinks you are smart:
