Hey I'm looking for someone around nw arkansas who has built a rocket mass heater. I'm having a bit of trouble with cob ratios and the manifold. I am willing to pay and feed anyone who is interested in coming out to the homestead and building one with me. Also open for work trade instead of cash. Thanks

Sorry you're too far for me to travel to, but maybe with some discussion we collectively can sort out your issues.

Can you describe the problems you are having with cob and your manifold? Pictures would help a lot with the manifold.

You might have already gotten your rocket stove figured out but if you still need help you might try contacting Paul and Lisa Majors form Garfield Ar. They built an earth bag home and they heat it with a rocket stove. They have also held classes on making one. He is also a heating and cooling guy by trade so he understands all the technical stuff. You can google them and find contact info that way. they have some youtube videos etc.
