I'm currently sourcing materials for my first RMH build, and I have a few questions regarding type and number of bricks I will need. I'm planing on using bricks for the fire box and heat riser. There is a company in town that makes every kind of brick from fire brick to refractory brick to super duty refractory brick and I would appreciate any guidance on what the experts recommend. I will include a link to the company so you can look at all of the brick options. Any help would be appreciated
Thanks

After looking at Ernie and Erica's web page i was able to fine a materials list and it says 375 building bricks, 59 fire brick 40 half bricks and two pavers. Hope this will be helpful for others.

Seed saving is a topic and skill that commonly gets overlooked. I had no idea what was involved before I took a series of classes on the subject. Some seeds like pole and bush beans are straight forward, just shell and dry, but others like tomato need to be fermented in there own juices to remove a coating before being dried or they can mold. Seed saving is also how we can select traits that best suit our environment or needs. To grow food that is more flavorful, more cold hardy or more abundant in its production it would serve us all to at least learn the basics of this valuable skill. This is a kickstarter that aims to share this knowledge and promote seed saving. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/757529692/reclaim-our-seeds-cultivate-diverse-food-with-seed?ref=nav_search

Please check it out, this is not my project, but something I feel is valuable and worth sharing.
