Rocket Mass Heater Intro and Complete Build
November 4-5, 2016,
Come build a Rocket Mass Heater with us from start to finish (Friday night to Sunday), or just come for the Friday Night Intro Class. The party starts Friday with a cob oven pizza potluck around 5:30pm followed by a tour of the natural buildings at Kelly’s Working Well Farm.
We will then retire to the cottage to be warmed by its rocket mass heater while we learn the physics behind these low-cost high-efficiency woodstoves. Find out how you can build one yourself with local clay and easily scrounged materials. We will discuss the requirements for safe, clean, efficient wood burning and look at photos of heaters we have built in houses, barns, greenhouses and even a school bus.
Saturday we will divide our attention between the cob thermal mass heat exchanger/battery and building/test firing the heater core. We will discuss common design problems as well as care and feeding of your RMH. For those who care to stick around we will continue the build more informally on Sunday.
Participants will go home with reference materials, simple RMH plans and a better grasp of what makes them work. Rocket Heater books, parts, detailed plans & consultation available. RSVP 440-221-6609 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Camping or a couch to crash on available upon request. $150 per person or $225 per couple (see below for discounted price). Intro only price is $25 per person or $40 per couple. Some partial scholarships are available for anyone who cares to be here early to help us set up and make cob.
UPDATE!! Please note that in the interest of getting a firm headcount we are offering a significant discount to those who register and pay by Sunday October 30, 2016.
