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.
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.

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?
... 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
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.
That is a really big piece of pie for such a tiny ad:
