Cost:  free for anybody that has ever been here before.  Otherwise $100 per person (click here to fork over $100 for this event).

Where:  wheaton labs near Missoula, Montana

    - Kirk "Donkey" Mobert
    - ernie and erica Wisner (60% chance)

Peter van den Berg built a rocket cooktop in allerton abbey using a new design that he calls "the double shoebox".   Kirk has some ideas on how he would like to upgrade that. 

Allerton Abbey is now sporting a brand new, extra beautiful uphill wall:

To get a good seal, a bit of the roof needs to be pulled back, some cob added, and then the roof replaced.   This will make allerton abbey ready for the annualized thermal inertia test this year.

So, we are bringing in some first class natural builders to make sure that allerton abbey is all done and ready for the annualized thermal inertia tests!  And this is a big benefit of natural building experience for the boots in the bootcamp program.

This is part 4 of 4 events all in a row:

part 1:  roundwood timber framing prep September 24-29
part 2:  roundwood timber framing build October 1-5
part 3:  rocket oven pizza party and rocket mass heater experiences October 5-7
part 4:  natural building and rocket cooktop October 8-12

A berm makes a great wind break. And Iwe all like to break wind once in a while. Like this tiny ad:
Do you prefer white or black rocket ovens?
