Hi permies,

There are some nice pictures in this thread.
I like cob, but I'd also like to get rid of the barrel. (a cooking plate is fine)
I don't like the looks of the barrel, plus I imagine it is probably too hot to touch and thus prone to accidents.

I understand that the functions of the barrel are many. It works as a radiator and cools the gasses quick enough to create downwards pull. (Both reasons, why I can't simply cover the barrel with cob)
My question: is there any development going on, to design a rmh without the barrel? (A nice - no mentioning of a barrel in "rocket mass heater", thus we could even stick with the name)

(still a DIY version, lots of reading doesn't hurt)

Thank you - Satamax Antone

my 'Nederlands' is more than rusty, but it looks as if I have to do lots of reading on 'donkey' now.

Oh my goodness would you look at that stunning RMH the 3rd picture down with the oven or warmer in it.! I tried to find more photos of it to see how it's constructed but no luck. Can anyone help with more photos? Information? Anything?

My first cob! This is a 4" rmh with barrel made from an old electric water heater. In this photo it has just been completed and is still wet. After drying the surface was a little rougher than I wanted, but I still think it's pretty.

Jesse Twinn : I Googled ''Rocket Mass Heaters Pictures'' The use of the word 'pictures' or 'images' is like having a smarter search engine parallel to the regular one.

The original picture in this thread was labeled 'Ernies pics' this is what I came up with ! Link below :

From this side you can see the old cookstove it encases !

For the Good of the Craft ! Big AL

Thanks! It was my first one I ever built. My wife and I actually built the RMH and bench first, then we built the house around it. I managed to squeeze in 30' of horizontal tubing before taking it outside. It's running like a dream now, wish I could have made it to wheaton labs for the rmh demonstrations.

I love it! What is the house made of? Have you posted any other pics of your building process (of the house or rmh) on permies? I'd love to see more of it!

The house is made of cob. You can check out our blog at montanacobcottage.blogspot.com where we recorded the process.

Daniel - you'd be more than welcome to have your own thread here showcasing your work. You can also add a live link to your signature guiding people to your blog. I suspect traffic to it will increase substantially if you did those things.
 
This. Exactly this. This is what my therapist has been talking about. And now with a tiny ad:
