cob rumford fireplace in outdoor classroom

Published 12 years ago in homesteading , Video - 0 Comments

This is an outdoor rumford fireplace made from cob at “the homestead” or “the mountain homestead” ecovillage designed to replace a campfire. The idea is that with a rumford fireplace people can circle around, not get smoke in their eyes and stay dry and warm even when it is raining. There is another rumford fireplace made of cob at the ecovillage next door: cobville. You can see that in my tour of cobville video.

This is an outdoor classroom where the people can meet outside even when it is raining and can have heat without smoke in their eyes.
