I'm new to this site, and have been studying the rocket mass heater
with all the cob
work involved. i live near Oneonta, and was wondering if you would not mind a visit or email to discuss cob. (Cob to me as a fleeting abstraction to me so far) I have been in the construction industry for 25 years, and can do nearly anything... I have even made adobe bricks 30 years ago, but need to know more about cob and feel comfortable beginning with it.
I'm wondering how much clay is in the local
soil here, how I find out, and how to decide how much sand to add to the soil that I dig, etc.
it sure would be kind of you if you would consider dropping me a line to perhaps begin a line of conversations about COB COB COB COB.... (I feel like I'm driving across Iowa again)...
