Major changes in the air

Yup, spring is comin' and I'm excited.  The grip of winter has been broken and the green grass is just around the corner despite the 23' morning we enjoyed today.  The frost was heavy on the windows of the truck as I came out with the dogs to start the motor to defrost that icy mess.  I know that it's still February and I know that we have another month of cold temperatures that will be infringing on our summer hobbies but I'm tired of winter so I am officially declaring that it's almost over.

Tiny House Heater

I received a email packed with information relating to Tiny Houses from Tumbleweed Tiny House today.  Included in the product information provided was stuff about a Tiny House Heater that looks pretty neat.  The size and capabilities look pretty good but the fuel source is the thing that caught my attention.  This is a propane heater for a small space.

So, here's my thinking: if'n you've done a good job building a tight house with good insulation, this heater could be a good source of heat for those nights when things get a bit chilly.  I was hoping to stay "off-grid" in terms of utilities and this little gem will go far to achieve that goal but allowing anyone to heat a small space like a Tiny House like the Hide-a-way Tiny House that I envision.

Thought you'd like to know.  Thanks to Jay and the guys at Tumbleweed for the heads up on this one.

Long time since my last post

I confess that it has been a long time since my last post.  If you have been reading here, you don't need me to tell you that I have been lazy, but if you're new, then this place looks stale.  Sorry, but there just has not been any real progress made during the last month of harsh winter weather.

The reason I'm posting now is that I noticed that my pallet supplier has presented a load of pallets that include some of the monster pallets I have been collecting for building materials.  I need to run over there before the neighbors get there and take all the good stuff.
