This is a badge bit (BB) that is part of the PEP curriculum. Completing this BB is part of getting the straw badge in Rocket.

This BB requires you to build a J-Tube Rocket Mass Heater.


These are some potentially useful resources:
  - The Rocket Mass Heater Builder's Guide by Erica and Ernie Wisner
  - Top Questions About Rocket Mass Heaters
  - New Build - Need Help
  - Building My First RMH (Tommy's Tea Dome)
  - Farm House RMH, First In House Build

This is a potentially helpful video on building a RMH.

Building a Rocket Mass Heater step by step to finish! Watch to the End!!!

To get certified for this Badge Bit you must provide:
  - pic of area before build
  - pic of core (exterior of burn tunnel, heat riser and manifold) without barrel
  - pic of ducts or stratification chamber before mass
  - 3 pics of manifold
  - pic of completed product
  - pic of vertical exhaust going into the ceiling
  - pic of vertical exhaust coming out of the roof
  - 2 minute video of starting the fire and proving there are no smoke leaks

Approved BB submission
Can't believe I'm the first here, I thought I'd be scrolling through pages of wonderful creations to upload my evidence.

We built our rocket in 2015 and I've at long last gathered the evidence for this, my first BB! I've put the full build (as well as the changes we made in 2019) into an 8 minute video. If this is not acceptable I can post the separate pictures as you wish.
