Not all of us are able to make a rocket mass heater, or have the time or desire to make one, but that doesn't mean we don't want one! I would LOVE to make this thread into a master list of rocket mass heater builders. If you have made a rocket mass heater and might consider building one for someone else, post here with a link to your build! The link can be a thread, a facebook gallery, a website, etc.


I can't guarantee that the below people will be open to making a stove for  you--they are the people who I have seen mentioned here on permies and at inventor events.




USA:

Chris McClellan ("Uncle Mud"), California, has been building RMHs and teaching for some time, all over the US.
Mud & Rockets & Yoga Workshop in California

Kirk “Donkey” Mobert, Point Arena, California http://www.sundogbuilders.net/ http://donkey32.proboards.com

Dave Peckham, southwest Idaho. Built a 6" rmh and it works just like its supposed to.  Is happy to help others nearby, and into Eastern Oregon.  

Rich Points, lower Michigan. Is a RMH builder in central.  Would love to help you out with your build!

Glenn Herbert, upstate New York. has built several RMHs and rocket stoves and an oven, and would be available to work on systems in or near upstate NY.Rocket mass heater with 8" J-tube and bell

Erica and Ernie Wisner, Tonasket, Washington. http://www.ernieanderica.info

Matt Walker, Western Washington. https://walkerstoves.com/index.html




Canada

Chris Sturgeon, Whitehorse, Yukon, Canada. Has built a functioning 6" underfloor RMH in his greenhouse, and would be happy to give assistance to others.

Steve Fairbairn, Regina, Treaty 4 lands, Saskatchewan, Canada. Has built 6-inch, 8-inch RMH and a 8-inch batch box. Beenhired to put on a 2 day workshop which we built 8-inch RMH in a greenhouse. Can be seen in the innovators RMH DVD where he worked under Tim, building the oven, water heater and the griddle. Always glad to help people with there RMH.




Europe

Peter van den Berg, Netherlands https://permies.com/f/304/peter-van-den-berg

Satamax Antone, French side of the Italian border, 3 hours from Marseille, 1 hour from Grenoble. 1 hour from Torino. Grumpy old fart, who only does what he wants, when he wants. Hard to deal with. But if your project tickles his fancy. The outcome might be real nice!

It's probably better to PM, I would think? If the interested party wanted to contact a builder, they could PM the builder, asking for information or a contact email.

That way, the builder's information stays safe from random people searching the web for people to spam with emails.

I'm working on mine this week in Northern Lower Michigan. Good to know someone in my state has done them. I'm going to get the J-tube done this week, Mass frame and the exhaust work. Should be an adventure!

Found two more builders.

One is located in Israel: Kamin-Massa, builders Adiel Shnior and Shilo Kinarty. Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/watch/?v=2004140329672807, YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCoSdz2kAhHunNBTrolzS2xA/videos Spoken and written word in Israelii.

The other is located in Belgium, one of the earliest adopters of batchrocket designs. Warmte op Maat, builder Joris Pouls. Website: http://www.warmteopmaat.be/. In Flemish.
 
Anything worth doing well is worth doing poorly first. Just look at this tiny ad:
Switching from electric heat to a rocket mass heater reduces your carbon footprint as much as parking 7 cars
