Welcome to the lil red cabin, located at wonderful base camp. Only a few steps away from the willow bank and the pee palace! A Beautiful morning view of the sunrise over the mountains, turkeys in the field, birds flying over berms, and on route to a short hike up the side on the volcano.

Home of the "minnie mouse" rocket mass heater.
Bunk bed with a double on the bottom and a single on top
And a short walk up to the fisher price house (home of J & P)

Come check it out!

Looks like home, sweet home. Practically a perfect Permie palace.

Kaizen. The only Japanese word that stuck with me means "constant gradual improvement." All the ants and gappers have a lively spirit of kaizen which has made a big difference at the Red Cabin. Spring blooms and a little smoke-back has helped, too. Note to self: Always thoroughly wash sheep's wool before using it as insulation.

Apologies to Peter van den Berg - he is from the Netherlands, not Norway!

Also, the Minnie Mouse is a rocket mass heater, not a rocket stove, and there is mass inside the barrel! A discussion about the Minnie Mouse starts here.

Ecobunks sounds good! I have a spare room now. Maybe after some 'renovations' I could make it into an eco-airbnb ... Interesting ...
For Permies who want to see the Netherlands i.r.l.

This turned out great, thanks for the video! If I wanted to learn more about this style of RMH, are there any other resources I can look at? I really like the compact footprint and visual style of this one.
