HELP!

Is there anyone out there with both a rocket mass heater and HOMEOWNERS INSURANCE?

I'm looking for an insurance company that will insure my place with the RMH.

thanks!

Chalky Patrone : Welcome to Permies.com, and a big Welcome to The Permies rocket stove / Rocket Mass Heater Forum Tread ! With over 18,000 Fellow members you
will always be able to find a diverse group of new friends who want to talk about what you want to talk about ! You will long remember your first few posts/ exchanges
here at permies !

Because of the weight issues you may be able to sneak your rocket mass heater in as a Masonry Heater, if the local building code people approve it as a masonry heater
your bank (The people that hold your note !) will be able to help you find insurance !

Have you been to cobcottage.com for your PDF Copy $15.oo of Evans' and Jackson's Great book 'rocket mass heaters ' there is STILL no other book in any language that
contains more rocket stove, Pocket Rocket, and rocket mass heater family information ! ( and I don't make a dime )

No one is working harder to find the necessary connections to make it easier to have a R.M.H. and home owners insurance than Ernie Wisner ! ernie and erica are Both
Moderators for this Forum !

I would suggest that as he is a busy man, you should go to Ernieanderica.info , and on the left hand side of the page click on/go to 'Consulting and Booking Events'
then on your new page also on the left Side click on/go to 'site planning' - There you will find a complete D.I.Y.-R.M.H. Builders guide, after you have completed filling out
the guide- and it is the most complete guide to a D.I.Y. project that I have ever seen, Then you should have enough information to decide if you want a rocket mass heater
in your future enough to want to contact Ernie Wisner For Help ! I am Looking forward to seeing more of your posts, and I hope you found this Helpful! For the Good of the
Craft !

As always your comments and questions are solicited and Welcome ! Think like Fire, Flow like a Gas, Don,t be the Marshmallow PYRO - Logically BIG AL !

Allen, thanks for the reply! Let me clarify a bit. The rocket mass heater has already been built. I know Erica and Ernie because they supervised its construction during a workshop, which I hosted last fall. They have been an amazing resource and very generous with their wisdom before, during and after we built this thing.

At this point, all I'm looking for is a way to insure the house.

Anyone?

To start off, I don't have an RMH or homeowners insurance (my home was deemed too high risk).

Since you haven't gotten the info you're looking for yet, here's a link with a little more info as well as a bump for your thread:

I would like to know this answer too as I am having a hard time finding any insurance or even an agent that will return my calls after I explain to them what is happening. So frustrating!! We are building a small 900 square foot cabin in the woods on 30 acres, all natural bush and waterfront and going off grid. Problem now is insurance. We live in Ontario Canada. Help, anyone!!
