Good Afternoon Permies,



A new addition to the Permies Poll series. Do you own a Rocket Mass Heater? There are many configurations of RMH that exist and could exist so I don't want to get too specific. I want to know if you utilize anything rockety and mass heatery on your properties.

I do not own a Rocket Mass Heater.

I am learning about them and am constantly impressed with what these rocket scientists are cooking up every day. Regulation creations some red tape when it comes to interior use where I live but I am in the early stages of potentially incorporating one into an outbuilding.

Me too. I'm thinking that the mass could be completely stealthy, and the rockety bits on an outdoor skid that can be connected, fired, and removed when The Man comes sniffing around. Nothing to see here -- smile and wave! Just a notion.

I'd like to have one someday when we can ever buy a house.
