Merry Christmas!

I hereby give a temporary viewing to folks on Christmas day that might need an excuse to beg out of watching a football game or some other chore.

This is available only on Christmas day 2016.  

Naturally, I hope that you like it so much that you buy the full 4-DVD set here:  http://richsoil.com/wood-heat.jsp

If you are not going to buy the full set, perhaps you could do me a favor and watch this and then post an "acorn" review here where the first line in the post is "I give this video ____ out of 10 acorns." and replace "___" with some number.



(offer expired)




the rest of the videos in this set:  http://richsoil.com/wood-heat.jsp

the book:  http://permies.com/eebook

It is an investment you will NOT regret. Trust me.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year

Awesome gift Paul, thanks. Though I do have to admit, my folks got me the DVD set, but the thought was wonderful Paul. And that is what counts. If Ihadn't put the dvd set on my list and gotten it this would have been a great chance to get some taste of what is in the dvds

Glad it is keeping you warm, and you didn't get any coal from Santa. That thought is the reason I thought of and asked if anyone had tried burning coal in one...

Though I'm sure Santa gifted you and Jocelyn well.

Thank you so much for sharing the video with everyone.

Trust me, Permie People. If you don't have the set yet and think you might EVER build a RMH, it's worth the investment!!! (Besides Paul really IS a handsome, well voiced, easy to listen to narrator )
The amount of information is incredible. Get *yourself* a gift this year if Santa didn't bring you this set.

Also Erica and Ernie Wisner have free plans up for a 6" bench (thanks!) and if you download that to look at as well, you should have everything you need to DIY.

Thanks to all I've learned from you guys I've now built my second rocket mass pizza oven. Well we've reached the test fire stage, we still have to build the mass and doors and the second rocket. But it fires well and clean.

And here is the fire in the back left port of the oven. At the peak it reaches the port on the other side.

That is a great video.  So many teaching gems.  Really good detail and nice shots to show assembly steps.  Thank you all for making this knowledge available!
