...oops, never mind!

For some reason I was only able to see posts up to 8 months ago until I posted my question and now I see all the more recent post.  

And I'm not sure how to delete my post.

I guess I need remedial help with the forum before I get remedial help with RMH bulding!

Hi Staci,

Very curious to hear your outcome -- how is your heater working?  Do you have any final pics?

I just saw this thread, and it is great -- wonderful help you found on the forum.  We'll be building a RMH this fall/winter and will be in your situation, and will learn a lot from your work!

Can native mulberry be used to raise silkworms?  I wouldn't want to introduce non-native invasive species, and mulberries spread so rapidly.  https://articles.extension.org/pages/67320/morus-alba-white-mulberry

So I'm curious about the upshot of the bigger design... does it seem like the secondary solar collector provides the boost that you expected?  Is it worth putting on a secondary collector, or not necessary?

I have another question about the design differences between the two collectors... the Missoula collector has the area under the collector enclosed with glass.  Does that seem to make any difference?  Do you think there's any advantage to enclosing that area, or is it unnecessary?

I'll be building my dehydrator in high desert so I'm thinking I might not need the extra boost.  It is quite arid where I am, but it does get cold at night.

Thanks for all this!

Beautiful work, and great to see you following your dreams.

Have both black paints held up equally well over time?  (Talking about the milk & vinegar vs strained yogurt in the ATC model.)

Thanks for all this good stuff.

Is the "Rocket Ovens Cooking Microdoc" a separate thing?

OK, sorry, I see that your FAQ says you can make even a tiny house...

It also mentions several stock floor plans.  It would be nice to see examples of a variety of those on the website.

If your house is the max 32' wide (unfinished interior), how tall would it have to be?

Beautiful houses.  Interesting discussion.

The pictures are all of big houses -- how does this design scale down?  Have any been made less than 1000 sq. ft?

Thanks for your work.

I'm also exploring this, and I've found these 3 sites; 2 of which are in Georgia (related companies, maybe?)

They are all selling DIY kits using Greenix SIPS... looks like on the order of $14,000 for a 24x24 DIY shell for the first 2.  Smaller ones available.  livablepods has some slicker versions but no prices posted, so probably expensive.

I'm wondering if anyone has experience with any of these.
