Hi Permies!  I've got another plan set finished up in time for the holidays for you!   I'm excited to introduce the Walker Brick rocket mass heater!



I've been having a lot of fun interacting with you all as you are building your Walker Ceramic Fiber J cores and Cook Stoves, and one of the most common interactions is folks asking for plans to build a rocket mass heater using the 6" Super Hot J Core Plan.  It's such an easy way to build a core, I thought I'd try to simplify the rest of the process as well. 

I've designed a Brick rocket mass heater that can be built by anyone using simple brick stacking and a safe clay/sand mortar.  The core is simple parts cut with a knife or saw from ceramic fiber board.  The brick work can be done with no brick cutting and very little fuss.  It requires about 225 bricks, ceramic fiber board, and some stone or concrete slabs/pavers for bench and bell tops.  A simple build that a rookie can build in an easy weekend, this one is for all of you folks who want an RMH but don't care for the barrel, or have a small space.  It's ideal for a small cabin, living room, greenhouse, shed, etc.

I've put the plans on sale through the weekend, there is a link to my site below for more info.

Let me know how I can help you build your heater, and thank you as always for letting me share here.  Thank you Permies!

Congratulations Matt !  You've done it again. If you keep popping up with these really cool plans , nobody will design & build their own anymore .... they will just buy and build yours !  Keep up the good work!
