From the cutting room floor of the dvd building a cob style rocket mass heater.  This is 45 minutes of the intro and outro for the tipi build.   About 35 minutes more than what is in the dvd.   So bonus footage that could not fit on the dvd:

The rmh isn't working too good, so we pop off the barrel to have a look:



The gap is a bit tight - so it gets widened.  Eventually we open a bunch of spots to discover that a wood rat made a home in the duct work.
