Rocket Mass Heaters & Natural Building Techniques
Thank you to Lasse Holmes, a natural builder from Homer, who discussed his experience, methods, & materials for putting together homes out of local & natural materials! A lot of really good advice was given about forming your own earthen (mud) recipe and putting together your own self-designed natural house. Lasse also shared a great deal of knowledge about rocket mass heaters and how the natural home building movement & philosophy compares to green home construction.
If you missed hearing about Lasse’s experience, there are many great books out there about natural home building. A good place to start would be the Wikipedia sight for a general introduction of this trade. The Natural Building School is also a great place to investigate.
