Mike There is a lot to define even with as simple a challenge as this ! Below is the List That you can find at ernieanderica.info of all the materials you need to have on hand at the start of the job and is near all inclusive as any list I have ever found !
This is where i attribute that list to ernieanderica.info Thanks
Parts and Accessories:
Most parts are literally dirt cheap, but there are a few things you may want to buy when making cob or rocket stove projects. The following links may help you find them.
Parts in a typical project:
Ducting or stovepipe
Earth (clay, sand, quarry fines, rock, subsoil, fill dirt)
Perlite (or other high-temp insulation)
Hardware / fittings (cleanout cap, tap screws, tape, chalk, gasket, foil tape)
Fiber or straw for cob casings
Decorative materials (tile, mica, pigments, facing stone, stove enamels, etc)
Masonry tools (trowel or float, brick-set or cold chisels)
Tape measure, level, etc.
With all these materials at hand stacked close to hand and good weather I estimate the total time for the job at about (6) 8 hr man/women days, 8Xs8hrs if working alone!
a six man crew is about the best ratio, unless you have a crew like at the Innovators workshop, Then a3-4-man crew can get it done in a day!
This is just my ball park figure the batch box RMH was built the night before the planed builds were started I Think !
So to answer your question as it appeared to be asked that would be yes, ( with out structural cob overwrap and or lime wash finish !) Big AL
