She recommended ripping it out and taking the loss, even come with costs of walls touch-up paints, plaster, etc. Ripping out a rocket mass heater, and
leaving a thimble where 'a wood stove Could be Hooked-up' would just about be comparable, or a little easier ! Just saying ! Big Al !
You are correct, Al. Just don't put a hole in the dining room ceiling.

This thought is always on my mind when I see what some people do to their homes. One family put a rmh in their dining room. Talk about a resell nightmare. First, I can't imagine the mess with an inspection, insurance, and mortgage (ain't gonna happen). Second, the dining room???
I'm curious as to the core producers/designers. Are these going to be Ernie & Erica and Matt cores? Will you be also using Peterberg's designs? Will you consider Dragonheaters and Zaug competition? And yes, it makes a difference. Not all Rocket Stove cores are the same.
Nice. The opening looks a little small but that may be from the picture. Will you be able to get the pizza in and out of there easily? I would assume that the metal top would be incredibly hot to handle but maybe I am wrong.

There is always a quality issue with products and in most cases it does make a difference. People constantly cut corners to save money and time. A lower quality item is the sign of an individual that really doesn't understand the product and what they are trying to copy. I see this all the time with my sales.
"Wow, that's good!" I want to say in response, "Yes, because you have been eating crap all this time and didn't know it."
It has been about 4 months since my last post and the business I am involved with is expanding. I can't say enough how finding a niche is key to making a living. There are too many natural farmers out there.

The price amount has dropped drastically in the recent years as the popularity has grown. I'm not sure about the rest of the country but masonry stoves are popular in the East. I have actually considered taking a workshop on building one.
