I am offering my help to anyone in my area building a Rocket mass heater.

Details-
I live in the Dallas Texas area.
I have a truck.
I have built a pebble style rocket mass heater that works great.
I have resources in the area to get materials and an idea of their cost.

Why am I doing this? I want to gain experience in the making of rmh's so to that end I will build or help you build one of your own.
Please send me a message or post below if you are interested.

I thought I replied yesterday but I must have hit the wrong button. I just wanted to commend you on your noble gesture. As a DIY level 2 I would hope more people with your knowledge and skill set would offer their help to newbies in their area. Personally I plan to wait on the ship able core and learn as much as I can so I can do/assist with the install. Keep up the good work Curt it's appreciated.

Allan thank you.

Aaron do not be afraid to try something. My diy level is pretty high but this project was really easy. In fact I was surprised at how easy it was. My suggestion to anyone trying this would be to make the clay/perlite mix in small batches. It will take you longer to put together but it lets you think in between about how it is shaping up.
 
If you live in a cold climate and on the grid, incandescent light can use less energy than LED. Tiny ad:
