Seems that our projects for this year are nearing an end.  Last year we heated with propane and it worked well except for the cost.  It only took a month or so to realize that we would have to have a wood stove up and running for the next year.  Last week we went to Tractor Supply and picked up the double wall pipe, roof flashing install kit and the wood stove.

Warm morning

We got started by cutting a hole in the drywall and framing in the chimney pipe mount, cutting the hole int he metal roof, completed the flashing and sealing and finished up with the cap.  It feels great to have that job done.

    It’s been cold and rainy today. The wood stove has kept it comfy inside.

    Looks good Sonny. Seems you are just a regular all around Jack of All Trades!

    Thanks Jim, we will be putting the rest of the insulation under the floor within the next couple of weeks. Next we will be installing 3 additional solar panels and rack mount. Today I ordered another bank of batteries – hope to install them next week. After that we are finished for the year.
