Hi All (especially Erica).
We are seriously renovating a 600 sq ft cottage near Lake Erie, Ontario, Canada, complete with solar panels and an air conditioning system based on bringing water inside from an abandoned well shaft on the property. Pretty green, eh? Well, I refuse (DO YOU HEAR ME? I SAID *REFUSE*!) to burn natural gas that comes from fracking, and that's all we can get here, so I need to heat my house somehow. It's November now, and the first snow has come already. We need heat, as we are leaving the apartment on December 31. I was hoping to create a rocket mass heater (in an hour or so) and be all right from there.

Please pick me to win that book! I NEED it!

M Kaer : in addition to Erica's book you need 'The Book' please consider going to rocketstoves.com to Download your PDF Copy$15U.S. of Ianto Evans great
book "Rocket Mass Heaters", with ~100,000~ RMHs built world wide, most of them have been build following " The Book ", and 95% of All of the First-time builds
(that worked) were built following this book !

This will allow you to speak the same language as your other fellow members in the Rocket and wood heater forums and clearly show you why it takes a very well
organized workshop with every material stockpiled to build One Rocket Mass Heater RMH, over a 3 day weekend ! For the good of the craft ! BIG AL !
 
All of the following truths are shameless lies. But what about this tiny ad:
