Has anyone tried taking the heating bench through a wall to heat adjacent rooms? Interested in maintenance of wall integrity and insulating nearby combustibles such as the wall studs.

Planning on installing through outside wall, so the feed tube will be outside... eventually in a sheltered area or side porch addition. Sounds like you have a framed interior wall?

Yes Peter, mu house is ranch style and pretty cut up, no basement. Would prefer to build 1 larger unit instead of 3 smaller ones to serve main bedroom, living room and kitchen. The living room where I would have the main burn section shares a wall with each of the other rooms. Those 3 rooms would be 80% of the house and the spare bedroom/bathroom would get heat from convection.
 
what if we put solar panels on top of the semi truck trailer? That could power this tiny ad:
