Yes Mister! We are very pleased with the beast! Since it's not very cold yet outside (between 2°C and 5°C in the night and morning and around 10°C/15°C during the day) . I only do one fire in the morning and an other one at night with mostly soft wood like pine and hemlock (leftover of the construction) . The thermal mass of the first bell is in the 55°C/65°C range.The second bell is around 30°C/40°C. The draft is very strong as we have around 35 ft high chimney with the plunge channel.
The indoor temperature is very stable at 23°C on the first floor. The house is still not hundred percent air tight yet and it's really confortable. The second floor might be too hot, I will try to recirculate the heat with a duct and a small fan.
When cold weather will be here, I expect that with two fire in the morning and two at night with hard wood like maple and ash the temperature range would attempt to reach 70°C/80°C. But anyway I will keep you informed of it's behavior.

peter is right, as far as I could any reported with my bell that has a high flow resistance, only in the middle of winter with continued use can close the bypass and reach about 70/80 degrees. Your stove comes with a bypass?

deadstarsstillburn: Hi there. I was directed this way by folks on the Permies.com website and am hoping I can get some information on how a total newbie can get started designing, siting, building, and not-dying-in-a-horrible-house-fire with a new RMH in a 160-year old home

deadstarsstillburn: The people over there recommended either a 6" batchbox or an 8" J-tube. I don't know what those are but am going to try to figure that out. What I need is a blueprint that I can scale to fit the need for my house. I have something likne 5000 square feet

deadstarsstillburn: but I do not need to heat all of it by any means. probably only need to heat half of that, maybe less.

deadstarsstillburn: moreover, the house has 3 storeys (large attic) so I assume if I get very efficient heating on the ground floor, that will go a long way toward heating the upstairs as well, no?
