Hi folks,

I'm just about to start rebuilding a house in the far corner of the Lower Ninth Ward of New Orleans. This will be the third house I've rebuilt in the neighborhood. Like most old houses in this area, it's an uninsulated, wood-frame house on a pier foundation with an open crawl space.

Most of this house's floor joists were removed and carted off before I bought the house. Before replacing the joists, I thought I'd look into the possibility of building a rocket mass heater, but I realize that I don't have the appetite right now for learning how to do this myself, so I thought I'd cast a line out for help.

I can offer some combination of the following:
--temporary living space in New Orleans
--temporary living space in Brooklyn
--cold hard cash
--labor

If this sounds intriguing to anyone, let's have a conversation about ways it might work to our mutual benefit.
Shannon
