The Straw Bale Studio
Oxford, Michigan, USA

If you want to learn how to build a Rocket Mass Heater the best way is to come build one, and now you can take one home with you when you go.

We will start with a tour of the functioning Rocket Heaters on the property and the fire science behind clean, efficient Rocket Mass Heaters including this one.

Then we will build one to heat the Straw Bale Sauna.

We will work with scrap metal and cob (sandy clay soil) so you will want to wear sturdy clothing you are comfortable getting dirty.
Vegetarian friendly mainly local food will be provided starting with lunch on Friday and ending Saturday evening with wood fired pizza in the cob oven (bring your favorite topping to share). There will also be a special opportunity for a limited number of participants to build their own fully functional CottageRocket heater.

The CottageRocket fits the fire chamber and mass inside a barrel (30 gallon or 50 gallon) and is perfect for a workshop or greenhouse (or cottage) where a three ton mass bench wouldn't be the best fit. You can get more info on what a CottageRocket is at this thread For the price of the workshop (plus parts if you want to take home your own CottageRocket) you can become a Rocket Scientist. for more information or to RSVP. Camping and bed space available.
