Build Project Description

This build will take place in a meadow, part of a small holding and care farm in the West Norfolk countryside. We are ready to build an outdoor rocket mass heater bench to provide warmth to the users of the Green Heart Farm. If you wonder what one of these is look here http://youtu.be/AmZjK1VHxvs. The one we are planning to build uses 6 half barrels so need loads of help to make cob and apply it. Since it is the first one that we build it will be a bit of an experiment but we have a heating engineer at the helm so we hope it will all fall into place first time! :) We see this as an opportunity for those interested to see one being built and to foster some friendships with like minded people. This is being built for the lovely people at Moulder's meadow by us, the members of the Wyrcanham Project (for more info look at wyrcanham.co.uk - website still under construction so bear with us...) There is access from a road, there is a small car park and the field is easy to negotiate with appropriate footwear.

Previous Building Experience

We helped prepare some tyre foundations for a strawbale house as well as preparing the chestnut poles that would connect the strawbales. It was a lovely couple of days out and we got to enjoy plenty of conversation and a meal with likeminded people.

Type of Volunteer Being Looked for

People happy to get down and dirty with the cob, any experience working with it would be a massive bonus (as we haven't yet!). Especially those interested in rocket stoves and the use of recycled materials for their construction.
