Now's the time to get your fuel-efficient cob stoves and fireplaces built. Cob Cottage Co. is offering PYROMANIA! Workshops this fall. Space is limited in both, and both have spaces available. Build a Rumford Fireplace* October 6-7, Coquille, OR Count Rumford was a pyrogenius, friend of Ben Franklins. Two hundred years ago he developed the cleanest-burning, most-efficient, best-heating system for open-grate fires. The stove is so good nobody has improved upon it. Traditionally, Rumford fireplaces are $10,000 specialist works in brick. CCC has developed a cob version that anyone can build in two days for $50. Well build a Rumford fireplace start to finish and explore many other aspects of combustion, comfort, and heating our bodies not buildings. And well have fun by the autumn campfire. Build A Downdraft Rocket mass heater* October 26-28, Cottage Grove, OR Well build a gravity-feed downdraft rocket floor heater stove. Rocket stoves are easy to build with scavenged materials, offering maximal efficiency at minimal cost. Many cob builders install rocket bench heaters, piping their stove through a cob bench, making a cozy place to hang out in the winter months. Well explore many other aspects of combustion, comfort, and heating our bodies not buildings, using our own several unique, hand-built stoves as examples. And well have fun by the autumn campfire. Begins Friday at 6 p.m. with dinner and end Sunday at 2 p.m. $200 fee includes materials, use of tools, camping space and all meals. 10% discount friends and families coming together, 25% discount for alumni of other CCC courses. (Total 25% discount perperson.) Rocket workshop, 10% discount for full pay by September 26. Limit 8 people. Both Cob Cottage Co., P.O.
