Hi, I'm planning on building a RMH in a small house I'll be building for myself this coming summer. In Paul's recent posts he mentions how they had anticipated the availability of a shippable core by now, but that has not come about. The shippable cores by Dragon Heaters seem quite nice to me. They do have a significant cost, but I was just wondering if there was another reason these are not talked about as a good shippable core option on here.

Also, I live near Sandpoint in North Idaho, and I would love to see a RMH in action and visit with someone who has built one in this area.

Thanks,
Jay

Hi Jay; I'm in trout creek ,mt  apx 60 miles( 1 hour) east of sandpoint on hwy 200.  Your more than welcome to come see my rmh in action. I've got dozens of photos from my build. Just P.M. me if your interested. There was another guy just north of sandpoint who also has one. I haven't seen him post in awhile , but he has invited folks out to see his  rmh in the past . Hopefully he is still in the area and will see your post, much closer drive for you. Building a rmh was one of the best things I have done, i'm sure you will think so as well after your build.   By the way , Lincoln fire clay and fire bricks full & splits are both available in Spokane valley at "White Block"  hvac pipe is cheapest at home depot , builders sand is also there but is free at any creek or lake ponderay.  Now that I think about it , there was some folks just south of the long bridge who did a group build on their B&B ? home ? a few years ago , not sure, but they did have a post in this forum asking for volunteers  or maybe for people to pay them to come learn ... can't remember....  try a search.
