Nice! it will keep nice and warm at night. And I hope you have some kind of a screen to put around to keep cat from burning its paws when it's hot.
He is a smart cat, he has figured out a nice distance from the stove for warmth but not spontaneous combustion.
Tell me more about this stove....I'm looking for something to use for additional heat for my cabin. Thank you!
It is a stainless steel stove that is build for Hot tenting. It was at a sporting goods store right next to the potbelly stoves. It sits a foot of the ground with its feet, Its rectangular of say 2ft by 2.5 and about 10 inches tall. So far it works pretty good in my uninsulated cabin.
I'll bet that will keep the place warm once you get some insulation inside. Is there a direct contact e-mail for you, I'd like to ask some questions about what your doing and especially up coming gardening!I also added your blog to my blog list, www.livingprepared.blogspot.com so my readers could follow your adventure.Mike.firstname.lastname@example.org
Sounds good, Mike. I sent you an email.
Love it! Yes, I'd like to know more too. I wonder how hard it would be to add 'after the fact' to an existing old house? I could see one of those in the master bedroom, which is an outside wall that I think would make it better to have installed.
I think it would be easy to add one of the 'hot tenting' size/made stoves. Just place it on some nice tile work, put concrete backer board on the walls behind it, tile it, just run the pipe up a few feet and then through the wall, and then have the external pipe go above the roof line. Few hundred bucks.
Looks great, This will give you one more way to do a little cooking. I often put a pot of beans or warm some stew on my fireplace insert. Just be safe until you install the fireproofing on the walls and floor around it. I love to run my insert 24 - 7 during the cold months. It makes the living room so inviting. Every day more progress --- you are the man.
Frank, That is a great idea about the beans or stew. I could make it during the day on the induction burner (Soon to buy) while there is sunlight to spare and then just leave it in a crock pot insert on the fireplace to keep it warm until I want it.
