Hi! My name is Zach Lundberg, and I would like to build a small rocket mass heater inside my house. Partly as an experiment, and partly because I want the energy efficiency. I don't have any books, but the books that I have looked up are more than 5 years old at most recent. What book should I buy if I want to build a rocket mass heater? And living in Utah, where do I go without traveling forever away to get some guidance? If either of the Wisners could answer this for me I would be so grateful!

Hi Zach, I can't be of much help because I have the exact same question. But I'm replying because I also live in Utah and Am attempting to build a stove and potentially Trying to make building these stoves a viable Business in the Salt Lake Valley. Would you be interested in Collaborating?

Zach and Renae : The best book I.M.H.O., is Ianto Evans ' Rocket Mass Heaters' It is the most used reference book at any rocket stove work shop . An other great source of Information Is Ernie Wisner, and Erica Wisner who are moderators on these forums, I would just order the book thru cob cottages , and skip around on these forums until you have a chance to take in the contents of the book ! pyro-maticly yours !

Renae and Allen, thank you very much! Sorry Renae but I'm just too busy at this point in my life. I'm in high-school, doing 13 credits of college classes, and am an assistant manager at a BBQ joint. Sorry about that. Allen, awesome! Thanks I'll get that book right away!
