I'm looking for a pre-made stove to begin my RMH build. I'll add the mass in myself, of course.
I've seen them before, but I can't find any now. Can anyone help me out? Even google is not helpful.

I have a monster patch of chanterelles. On a good year, I can harvest up to 100 lbs per week. I'm looking for ideas on how to monetize them with a greater margin return than just dehydrating or selling locally.
Preserved in oil?
chanterelle crackers, etc.
any ideas are appreciated.

(Is there a better forum to post this in?)

Open invitation. We are working on a blockchain backed permaculture business centered around the PAHS concept. WarmLife is the company name. Free Heat For Life is the tagline - and we believe it can be done. We want to do residential retrofits - the market is far larger than new construction.
Our invitation to this community:

  • Founding partners - this is still in concept stage and we need founding members (strong commitment required, but could be very well rewarded).


  • Read, edit, comment on our white paper.


  • Work for us - we need a variety of skillsets, especially social media and PAHS expertise. Any other skillsets will be considered - pitch an idea and join the team. We need to build out the team. Have you done a PAHS install? Are you a permaculture pro?Accountant? programmer? Lawyer? Graphic designer? Materials engineer? Online marketing professional? Social media ninja? Mold prevention expert? Franchising expert? Angel investing expert? Administrative savant? We need all this and more.


  • Even if you’re just interested in seeing this as a business, contact us and let us know.


  • Be an advisor - senior entrepreneurs, permie experts, lawyers and more are welcome. Even bankers!


  • Provide Proof of Concept. We are looking for any and all working installs - professional, homeowner, greenhouse - anything we can get - photos, videos, technical explanations, conceptual upgrade ideas, etc.


  • And, of course, we’re looking for seed investors.


  • If you want to follow-up (link to whitepaper / send your proposal, idea, etc.), then email - mailto: misterkel@gmail.com with Permies WarmLife in the subject line.

    4 seasons book - he talks about a French technique, that I'm trying this year. Tilting beds toward the sun - it seems to extned the season and provide a pretty good boost in soil warmth.

    yeah - design is pretty tricky - basement with wood floors. Space issues, too. Old farmhouse.
    Looking at a bell-type bench with a large masonry stove style of expansion chamber.
    Really want someone to help with ideas for it, though.
    If anyone is good at design, I can send photos. I would even pay someone a bit to design it.

    Thinking about pouring some high stem walls into cinderblock in the basement for structural support.

    I'm looking for a pre=manufactured rocket stove for a mass heater build I'm planning.

    I have no idea how to go about picking one. Is there a good list somewhere on permies? Reviews by people who have tried them?
    any help is appreciated.

    nice place to stay, great food, free homebrew while you help me design and build my home's RMH (and maybe a few other things if you stay longer).
    We live right on the edge of Cape Breton Highland's National Park in Cheticamp.

    We have a nice 26 ft guest trailer, so there is a private space for woofers.
    Looking for someone May-Sept - anytime this year.

    Great, thanks. Next question - I'm having trouble routing the exhaust. A great solution route-wise would be to poke down into the basement, then into the chimney - which has awesome draw already. This would mean going down some 6 feet or so before going back up about 25 feet above the air intake. Will that work or create major problems.
    (The mass doesn't fit by the chimney, unfortunately.)
