Geodesic Dome Greenhouse - Part 10 - ROCKET MASS HEATER
I won a bid on eBay for 48 fire bricks. I picked those up today. I paid 1 Euro! I also bought a new oil barrel that will be delivered. And I bought a metal chimney pipe we can use for our stove. I have a bid on the pipes I can run through the floor. That's local, so I could pick those up if we win the bid. The total cost of our green house rocket stove will be about 50 to 60 Euro. Juergen and Nicole built the brick wall for the front of the greenhouse. We will build the bottle wall next week (hopefully). It is looking good, thanks mostly to Nicole and Juergen. Nicole especially has worked hard. I hope it turns out well, and she can use it as an art studio. Here is a good video on building a rocket stove. Ours will be smaller, but basically the same idea. Our stove pipes will be shorter, but run under the floor. Our greenhouse is much smaller then the one in this video.
