I already bought and watched the Wood Burning Stoves 2.0 4-DVD Set. And while there was a lot of information, and How-to, there was plans for making the Portable Rocket Heater. And the plans on www.permies.com that I did find were for an custom cob Rocket Heaters. As suggested, I want to build the current generation of the Portable Rocket Heater to heat my garage and/or Pole Barn. Then I would like to eventually make one for heating hot water for the house. (Our house is hot water heated, and has an INSIDE wood boiler from 1978, and it has a large fireplace with air tunnels to pull air under the concrete floor to the the fireplace.)
Is there a PDF plan with material lists for the portable rocket heater for an easily tested? I can reverse engineer something from the videos, but if there is something already out there...
Thanks,
Eric

I believe that there are no published plans yet because they are still in the design testing phase. Erica/Ernie/Paul are waiting until their designs are well tested before publishing any plans, so if you want to build one, you are going to have to wing it based on what has been discussed in the podcasts and on the threads here.

Tom, I am afraid that you are right. Personally, I would put out a set of plans and call them experimental, and have people give their experiences with the plans. But I guess I will reinvent the wheel.
