The Making of Our Cob Rocket Stove

Thanks so much for all the amazing help from friends in the past couple weeks! We are so thankful to be warm and cozy in the bus now! The rocket stove is complete except for the final coat of clay plaster. It has such a sweet presence, almost like a new member of the family. This clay has been living under the prairie grasses on our hillside since the glaciers dropped it off, and now it keeps us warm. Pretty dang cool!

Mixing the clay with water and shredded squidgy!


Placing the barrel upside-down on top makes this a mass heater


Adding the clay around the barrel will capture the heat and release it slowly in the bus, like a radiator
