so i've managed myself to get a nice plot of land, nothing too fancy but enough to build the house i want. i'm going with steel framing + corrugated metal siding, mostly to minimize outside maintenance.
it'll be well insulated and cross ventilated so i don't care too much about summers, but i'm trying to figure the best way to heat it in winter.
i´m figuring some sort of electric powered hot water radiators combined with solar heat collectors, but i would also like to have some wood burning system, since i have access to lots of soft wood branches.
i couldn’t find good info about thermal mass heaters in combination with this kind of houses, any data or suggestion?

Build something like this underneath it

vinyl siding was invented like 75 years ago and performs better

Just make sure you have good insulation, or else you'll loose all the heat. Maybe you could insulate the heater itself with a lot of sand.

yes, but metal stands weathre and time much better and with proper insulation does the work pretty well. there are barns were i live that are more than 100 years old, and still good. i'm going with prepainted corrugated metal with its own foam insulation and of course inner insulation and double glass windows.

and i prefer the look of it.

i like rocket stoves a lot, i've seen them working pretty well in straw bale houses, but i'm building my house on an elevated metal platform to avoid soil humidity (the plot is really close to a plain river) and i'm concerned about the weight of that amount of brick or whatever you use to build the stove.

i'm thinkin on building a dedicated concrete platform specially dedicated to support the thermal mass of a heater, but i'm looking for something more in the way of pic related. i'm not too much into the hippie, organic, rounded look.

That 55 gallon stainless steel drum is about $700 just in scrap prices.

Wetback fire running hot water radiators is the only way to go

>Make house warm and dry as fuck
>easy clothes drying in winter
>Don't lose all your heat if you leave a window open
>Easily room by room adjustable
>Comfy as fuck

Radiators are fucking God tier. Thermal mass with pipes in slab is a shit meme. Plus you need a specialised slab, slap some radiators in any kind of house and you are good to go.
