The Movies
Solar Food Dehydrator Movie (1hr21min)

In this movie, you can follow along with creators and makers as they discuss the merits of design elements, and then go on to the build the Wheaton ATC1 dehydrator. This movie compliments the plans for building this and the Missoula model solar food dehydrator. With this video you'll get great insight into how to proceed when building your own.

Free Heat Movie (2hr18min)
This video explores the world of rocket mass heaters, and features the build of an advanced Rocket Assist solar dehydrator. Rocket Mass Heaters are possibly the most powerful solution to many of the problems confronting individuals and the global population today.  For individuals, Rocket Mass Heaters can save thousands of dollars and bring greater comfort. Some call it "carbon neutral," others "carbon negative." Heat your home with yard waste and cardboard while reducing global problems - we call it free heat!

Viewers will get a front row seat for a variety of builds:
-A solar food dehydrator with a rocket assist for when the sun goes down.
-A standard, 8 inch, pebble style j-tube rocket mass heater.  This is a basic, yet incredibly high performing system.
-A 6 inch cob style j-tube rocket mass heater in a tiny house.
-Lorena style rocket cooktop - heats a flame-embedded pot super fast, then heats the cook surface.
-A cottage-style rocket heater (with no mass) for a rocket sauna.
- and much more!
