This is interesting for people who speak German. Like in other languages in German too, there is very few literature abaut rocket stoves and rocket mass heaters (RMH). Therefore I was happy to find a little booklet dealing with RMHs and other efficient heating methods. It is not a substitute for Ianto Evans book but it explains the principles of RMHs easy to understand and scientifically correct.

The web-site is: Effizient-heizen.bplaced.net

all the best
Sebastian

Hi Konstantin,

did I understand right? You want to build in your workshop a rocket-mass-heater? As I know, you need a permission in Germany (like in other countries too) to build a wood firing oven. How did you solve this problem? I have German friends which did not get the permission.

Hi Peter,

To build a RMH makes sense. So I do it. To follow lot of BRD-rules does not make sense at all. I never ask for permission. Who am I to ask for permission Never ever. In no case at all.

If you ask anybody that this person should give you the permission that you can do what you want - this person gets the resposibility of a part of your life. Its a simple story: I can't and will not get any insurance for my buildings. If it burns down, its just my personal responsibility.

I like your answer!
And I told my friends about your workshop. Let see if they will attend.

Konstantin: What about the workshop?
Any conclusions about the Dragon-heater interesting for all of us?

regards

Hey there folks,

... I missed that workshop!! What a pity! I'd been planning to travel all the way to Denmark for a week for a rocket stove workshop in the summer, but that one was cancelled. And now there's one in Germany, and I get to know about it only afterwards...

Anyway, I would really appreciate it if you let me know, should there be another one any time soon. I'll happily put it up on my blog and I know a couple of other people who'd be interested as well. I'm planning to build a cob house in 2015 and I would dearly love a nice cosy rocket stove in my living room

All the best
Anna~

that page only shows me a 404... is there another site where I can take a look at the pdf? I was here when I first joined, but couldn't open the page then either... and figured it was thing of the past. Need to know where it was held for starters, lol.
 
Oh, sure, you could do that. Or you could eat some pie. While reading this tiny ad:
