Wow! I felt like I was there. Wonderful job!!!! And I just know that is so warm and toasty when it's cold outside.
Seeing how it is currently something on the order of 20F outside... to be indoors laying by the fireplace and the cat trying to lay in front of me while I do it... Yes. Its warm. Not bad for an uninsulated shell so far. Can you see the big picture as I do? ;) BTW. My land is in a river valley that is between gold mines. My neighbor panned a bit in his portion of the dry creek and came up with a few pickers. You care to guess what I'll be doing this winter while sitting on the couch watching Oprah??
Believe it or not I spend a fee weeks of my Winter panning concentrates I've sluiced or dredged during the summer...be careful you don't catch the FEVER!
Oh, that is awesome! If I figure it out and enough comes out panning... I Am Sure that I will. I know there is gold here. Just how easy and much is the mysterious experiment. ;-)
Loved the tour! Mr. Granny even brought his coffee in and sat down to watch your progress. He NEVER looks at anything on the computer, so you're extra special in this house! The first thing we discussed was "no windows?". Glad you cleared that up at the end of the video. Great job.
Ooo. I do feel special. Wish him a thank you! Yep. Eventual windows. You don't think I could forego them and pretend its Summer all winter, while hiding indoors with plant starts?
Thanks for the video. It allows us to see how you are progressing and what we can expect should we adopt the same life style.Get the insulation in there because cold weather is going to pay you a long bitter visit! :-)
Exactly. The insulation is on the agenda this week actually! I'm placing high hopes with it making a drastic change in the comfort level. As well as possibly reducing the amount of wood needed to keep it comfortable or in turn using the same amounts but having it a much more pleasant all around temperature. The last few days I have been trying out wood pellets in the stove. It appears I can get a 40lb bag @ $5 last three days with adding a little bit of wood from around the acreage. Today I am cleaning out the long died/dried willow branches that are choking the dry creek bed. They burn easily. Nice for fire starting. As its airy with the branches in there to get it hot quick.
I suspect there will not be anything combustible left to burn in a two mile radius come spring time. ;-)
