Credit: Dawn Hoff

Chris was one of the innovators at the Innovators Event and will also run the appropriate technology course Jul. 9th - Jul. 20th (tickets available on website from Jan. 1st). They talk about the Cottage Rocket, The Butt warmer, The Ring of Fire and a Season extender to put into a green house which can withstand wet conditions.

The discuss the "Minny Mouse" heater used in "The Love Shack and the modifications they made to it and how it improved the heat retention in the leaky shack.

Is there anywhere to read more or view/buy plans for the cottage rocket? I'm having trouble visualizing it, and I'm looking for a wood stove for my father's workshop.
