The Rocket Mass Heater Builder’s Guide

This kickstarter was originally planned for last year … its finally arrived. Until now there has really only been one book on Rocket Mass Heaters by Ianto Evans, but having read it and built rocket stoves guided by it, I feel it is out of date (though I haven’t seen the latest edition). There has been much evolution since this book was written and I am confident this new book by Erica (and Ernie) Wisner is a much needed replacement for it.

If you are new to rocket mass heaters and you get to the kickstarter in time (there are a limited number of places available) I recommend the $75 bundle which includes the Village Video DVD – which is the best I’ve seen so far and I have a feeling will compliment the book very well (since it also follows a build by Erica and Ernie). That bundle should give you a very good start towards building your own rocket mass heater.

    Nice one! I backed it just 10 minutes ago… This is one way of saying thanks to many info found freely on the web from Ernie and Erica…
    My first heater for me was batchbox RMH but not so long ago i built the regular heater in my yurt!

    This is the knowledge that gives us the option to make our survival more comfortable in a simple way…

      I agree. It is a wonderful opportunity go give back to Erica and Ernie for everything they have put into Rocket Mass Heaters.
