Russell, did you get an answer to your question about RMH or Masonary heaters in NZ? I’m interested in installing one in my new strawbale home I’m designing.

Hi Kate

Ed Main here from Auckland

A story to tell then a suggestions to make on a possible way forward for RMH's in New Zealand

During lockdown 1 in 2020 stuck at home, I stumbled upon the you tube videos of RMH's.
I was seriously blown away by the practical simplicity of the concept so I dug around for
more info with the idea of building a prototype

This link is for an Auckland company that sells fire resistant bricks  
https://www.thermalsolutionz.co.nz/

My suggestions:
1) You may be best to build a prototype yourself... OUTSIDE... perhaps so it can become
   a bbq area
2) Then approach a  local council building inspector to demonstrate the concept
   This permies youtube video shows the differences in stove types
   


My concern is this:
Building inspectors and councils may balk at RMH's because it is DIY and not a
recognizable brand

Kind regards

Hi Guys

I have personally been involved with two consented masonry heaters in Queenstown designed and led by Albie from  'Maine Wood Heat', an amazing craftsman and designer.

They would be a very good place to start. Also 'Tulikivi Oi' make beautiful soapstone units that are worth checking out,  I believe they have some units installed in NZ.  I hope this helps

Warm regards
Sean
