Rocket Stove Combined Training

from 400.00

Beginner/Intermediate |   8:30am - 6:00pm April 8-15, 2017 |   Hesperia, California

Come join Cal Earth Institute as we combine sustainable architecture with sustainable heating systems! This combination workshop is very much hands-on and is geared towards someone who wants to build and create a useable space right away.

In this workshop you will learn how to build your own house and how to build a super high-efficiency masonry heater in only nine days!

Program includes

  • The workshop will include the full Core Curriculum taught at Cal Earth Institute during the first five days
  • Students will participate in building a complete domed structure on site and all theoretical and conceptual details
  • The masonry heater is also a full build, from beginning to end.

About Masonry Heaters

  • Masonry Heaters burn fuel at 90+ percent efficiency, producing almost no polynuclear aromatic hydrocarbons and double burning the fuel and the gases so that the fuel-to-heat ratio is extremely efficient. Along with this the system produces instant radiative heat, instant hot cooking surfaces and longterm conductive heating of the building which last for many hours once the thermal flywheel has momentum. The combustion chamber design is discussed in detail; the dynamics and theory of fire are discussed in detail; cob, earthen plasters and insulative elements are discussed in detail, as well as finishes, artistic flourishes and custom design considerations.
