Pocket Rocket Stove Portable Heater Project (PRSPHP)

Recently I changed the living room set up. Rearranged the furniture, made a cushion for the bay window and stuff like that. I got to thinking about the fireplace and how I wish it has something that would let more heat into the room. So I began researching ovens.
I quickly got to Cob Ovens and the rocket stoves. But they were so big and in a style that would not work in our home. And really, this is the fireplace I had to work with.

I couldn’t find a rocket …
