This is similar to the rocket stove I have in mind. It was designed by Robert Gisolf.

I live in a heavily wooded area. I need to clear the hardwood growth just to have open pastures, and a garden.

So we started burning wood for primary heat our first year. Just purchased a low tech wellded air tight at home depot. I installed class a tripple wall pipe through the celing and roof structure, and installed a roof jack near the peak. This works well when I have dry wood, not so good for green wood.

For the new house we purchased a high tech Hearthstone stove, and had the stove pipe professionally installed. The thermal mass of the soap stone used by Hearthstone works very well regulating the temp inside our house. While I am not a fan of home built stoves or stove pipe, I believe you will like the way the thermal mass moderates wood heat.

Some lessons learned over five years,
Cut your fire wood about 12 months before you need it. Burn only cured (dried) firewood.
Worry more about maintaining excellent exaust draw of the stove pipe, than piping in combustion air.
Use double wall pipe below the celing and insulated tripple wall trough the roof. Limit 90 degree turns.
Install the roof jack about a foot from the peak of the roof, and extend your tripple wall pipe 4ft above the peak.
Install a cap on your pipe with a wire grill to keep birds out of your pipe/stove, and design your stove pipe to allow easy cleaning.
Cleaning from the bottom is prefered, because your roof will be covered in ice and snow, exactly when your pipe/roof cap needs attention.

Thanks for the good suggestions and insight. Fortunately my little cabin is extremely well insulated. Once the temp is at a comfortable level, doesnt take much to keep. I plan to build a small rocket stove based on very good design. The pipe will exit on lower floor and then go up above the second story roof. So two 90 degree bends will be used. This one place where pipe penetrates wall will also be used for return air. It is only about 6 inches thick. So no problem with any serious cooling the temp of exhaust gasses. Even tho the temp will be near ambient after flowing thru the outer chamber of stove.
