Hi everyone,

Here are the Virginia Masonry Building code specs for your general perusal and edification. I think the section of concern to rocket mass heaters is "SECTION R1002 MASONRY HEATERS"

I may be willing to go thru the process of building my RMH to attempt to meet these specs, and getting a permit and inspection to cover fire insurance concerns.

If anyone sees any points of concern or potential blockers, that would be great feedback.

Thank you much, Douglas

Thanks for the post Douglas, i live in over in buckingham, off the grid, under the radar, and am very interested in getting these rockets into the mainstream and permittable

then people can have insurance etc

keep us posted on your progress
Now I am super curious what sports would be like if we allowed drugs and tiny ads.
Solar ovens, haybox cooker - What would you build to go with a rocket oven?
