Rocket Mass Heaters:
Welcome. We started this website to share our life with friends and family, but it's quickly becoming a vital resource for rocket mass heaters and other work. We are honored to make our living offering resources for practical projects: plans and booklets, free online information, and in-person workshops on a wide range of hands-on skills.
Between our projects and our clients' projects, we have limited hours available. If you're looking for free project help, please check out the free resources we've already posted here, on our blog, and on forums where it benefits the public, like www.permies.com. If your project is of a private nature, you can put down a deposit for private consulting.
questions@ErnieAndErica.info reaches both of us, and we'll do our best to respond within a few days.
It takes more than a crushed leg to keep this man sitting down. Ernie is semi-retired due to a disabling injury, but still makes time for the occasional workshop or fascinating prototype project. He often reserves a few hours a week to answer rocket stove, botany, and seasteading questions on the public forums at www.permies.com. After all, there's only so many hours in a day a man can think about boats.*
Work History: Fishing & maritime work, wildlands firefighting, botany, natural building, hydraulics and plumbing maintenance, consulting & research, and (briefly) cook, chocolatier, ballet dancer, and art model.
*There are 24, to be precise.
