Ok, not really, but who wants to host one?!

Anyone out there with the skills and expertise to give a workshop for us easterners that can't make the October Montana bonanza?

I've got my fire brick. And stove pipe. And sand and straw and clay for the cob. I have my welders gloves.

I bought Paul and Erica and Ernie's DVD. I've listened to the podcasts. Still, I'm a dumb ass. Love some hands on workshopping.

I can host at our new digs (Mossy Stone Farms) here in the northern Catskills, New York State, but you'll have to bring inflatable mattresses and tents and sleeping bags if you want to spend the night (we've not yet purchased additional mattresses for the gazillian rooms here in Prattsville).

I will be working on my RMH as the fall approaches, a half hour east of Binghamton. I would be happy to host work parties where people can gain experience in construction methods and discuss design face to face.

I have a working rocket-fired cob oven, and have built several other rocket heaters of various sorts.

D Tyler Huff : Wow, While I missed Glenns last workshop I am positive that he will be a great source of information, especially for any beginner !

And not very far away !

I am adding a link to a series of Video clips from another DVD for sale showing an upscale build in an existing structure over wooden floors ! While

Bracing the floors from underneath, and the installation of the final vertical chimney are not within the scope of this video, fully 2/3rds of the Total

DVD is shown in the clips ! This will be helpful by itself, and you may decide to make a purchase of the DVD for your Builders Library !

Good luck ! For the Good of the Crafts ! Big Al Link Below :
