With photos from an actual build in New Hampshire the reader will enjoy over dozens of tips, lessons and resources to help them finish their rocket mass heater. Information about the finish coat, building the heat riser, mistakes NOT to make and links to forums, blogs, videos, books and dvd's make this book robust and packed with left out information from the How To manuals. A genuine companion guide to have at the fingertips of anyone building their own heater. Newly updated with additional photos and bonus chapter!
The authors live on a small micro homestead in New Hampshire complete with hugelbeds, micro swales, chickens, insect motel, herb garden and a micro orchard with many other designs to come. They try to incorporate as many true permaculture ideas as possible. They lecture and give tours about their rocket mass heater to anyone that cares to come by.
