Build a rocket stove for home heating | Author’s note, 2015-02-14: Based on the interest I’ve received in this project, I’m considering selling plans for a stove similar to the one described in this article. See the Rocket Stove Plans section at the end of the article and let me know if you’d be interested. Original article: For some time I’ve been considering the best way to deal with a pile of scrap wood that has been growing next to my home, the result of many woodworking and carpentry projects I’ve been involved in over the years. taking it to the landfillcutting it into chips and using it as mulchburning it From a climate change standpoint, the latter of these is surprisingly the least harmful in the long run. Burning also has a side benefit. Ads by Google Warnings Fire is dangerous. 0. 1. 2. 3. 4. How is a rocket stove different from a regular wood stove? The following illustration shows the basic design. Construction Rocket stove mass heaters are often built from steel drums. Mad scientist at work… Does it work? Savings

Ils inventent l'Indépendante, une maison écolo et low-cost de 40 m² à 35 000 € De loin, elle ressemble à une cabane en bois grand format. OEuvre de deux amis d'enfance, Jean Colin et Jean-Paul Gautier, l'Indépendante est en réalité une maison innovante. « D'abord par sa conception : c'est une maison en kit, qui peut être montée comme un jeu de construction par tout un chacun en deux ou trois semaines, explique Jean Colin, architecte installé à Duault, dans les Côtes-d'Armor. Nous avons pensé à tous ces jeunes qui ne peuvent plus devenir propriétaires. Nous proposons notre modèle de 40 m² pour 35 000 €. » Autre atout : « Comme sa surface au sol est inférieure à 20 m², les acheteurs n'auront pas besoin de déposer un permis de construire : une simple déclaration de travaux suffira », ajoute Jean-Paul Gautier, skipper à Loctudy dans le Finistère. Une maison libre de réseaux Cette maison pas comme les autres peut être installée sur un terrain non viabilisé. Ici, il n'y a ni courant, ni raccordement à l'eau ou aux eaux usées. Premières livraisons au printemps

Professionnels Valorisation des espaces publics A découvrir Professionnels rocket mass heater | aprovechonaturalbuilders We learned about home heating during week 5 of the Shelter Series, which meant that we got to play with fire 5 days in a row! This equaled a very happy Sarah. On Monday Max Edleson built and dismantled and rebuilt a dozen different systems for containing and controlling fire – from a circle of stones to an oven to a rocket mass heater. The J shape of the rocket mass heater – this brick formation is inside of the barrels We then proceeded to build a rocket mass heater inside the Boathouse. This beautiful image of a tree magically appeared in the bottom of the barrel…! Over the next few days we got all of our stove pipe organized and laid out, built the brick innards of the heater, cut the barrels to fit, made batches of cob, and formed the bench. It will be so nice to have the rocket mass heater in the Boathouse as we head into autumn. In addition, busy little bees that we are, on Friday we whipped up a Justa griddle, just for kicks. All together it was a splendid week, full of fire and fun!

Global Village Construction Set by Marcin Jakubowski Open Source Ecology is a network of farmers, engineers, and supporters building the Global Village Construction Set - a modular, DIY, low-cost, open source, high-performance platform that allows for the easy fabrication of the 50 different industrial machines that it takes to build a small, sustainable civilization with modern comforts. The aim of the GVCS is to lower the barriers to entry into farming, building, and manufacturing. Its a life-size lego set that can create entire economies, whether in rural Missouri, where the project was founded, or in the developing world. So Far we’ve prototyped 8 of the 50 Machines and we’ve been expanding rapidly. We are 100% crowd-funded. We have 400 True Fans that support our work monthly. Please watch these videos if you are new to the project: What Makes the Global Village Construction Set so special? Why should I help fund this project? The library of instructional material that we produce will make replication a straightforward task. Absolutely!

Fired the rocket … thank God for skylights! | Darfield Earthship Posted on 11. Dec, 2010 by Chris in Construction, Earthship, Energy Solutions, rocket mass heater This morning we tidied up a bit around the stove. We placed bricks around the ash clean out to protect the pipe from gravel and cob. After that we shoveled and tamped gravel around the foundation to bring the unfinished floor level to the bottom of the stove core. The next step in our rocket mass heater project was to pack approximately 2″ of clay slip mixed with perlite around the core of the stove. Anyway … after a bit of research I figured out what clay slip is. … fill a tub … one-third with water, add screened soil, and mix thoroughly … Clay will be suspended in the water on top … when the clay-water mixture is as thick as heavy cream, it is time to start “harvesting” the clay slip. This was easy enough and late this morning Sandra was busy harvesting clay slip. Surprisingly, this plan worked fairly well. Here are some pictures …

Eco-Dome: Moon Cocoon - Cal-Earth Building Designs The Eco-Dome is a small home design of approximately 400 square feet (40 sq. meters) interior space. It consists of a large central dome, surrounded by four smaller niches and a wind-scoop, in a clover leaf pattern. Learning and building an Eco-Dome is the next stage after building a small emergency shelter and provides hands-on learning experience in the essential aspects of Superadobe construction. It's small size of approximately 400 square feet (interior space), makes it a manageable structure for the first time owner builder. The finished "very small house" is self-contained and can become a small guest house, studio apartment, or be the first step in a clustered design for community use in an Eco-Village of vaults and domes. Built from local earth-filled Superadobe coils (earth stabilized with cement or lime).Tree free.Maximum use of space through alternative options. Note: The Eco-Dome plan is a part of the Cal-Earth educational and research program.
