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.

We don't really know what we plan to do with this data, besides learning how to track data. We might try using it to track cross-promotions with other trusted websites, so we can thank them properly if they send us more visitors. This tracked data is designed not to be personally identifiable, for what that's worth. We might still be unwittingly enhancing Google's ability to sell you more targeted ads or something. Our mailing list is now by opt-in only, and we don't sell it, so you're all right there.
If you have cookies disabled, we probably won't be able to do the tracking thing very accurately. So if you want us to know where you're from, you might leave a comment somewhere.
ernieanderica.blogspot.com is a good place to read more about us (and leave comments, if you feel like going public with your connection to us or our work).
