First, a pretty Icon. Thank you, @inventrix!!
Second, guys, we MADE FIRE!! We finally got the wood-burning stove installed and MADE FIRE! There was some smoke and some mess but then fire happened! (the seam on the pipe popped but we got it put back together).
Remembering how to start a fire is, it seems, like riding a bike. You let the memory muscles take over and it works.
And, while our house is not at all set up to be entirely heated by the stove (It’s on the high end of a slightly-sloping downstairs, for one), it certainly helped, and we have lots of scrap wood & half a freecycled ruined barn and grapevine galore to burn, and that’s a lot cheaper (i.e. free) than heating oil/kerosene, which are stupid expensive.
Window is almost done. Next… painting the utility room (woo). 🙂 And the accessory parts of the bedroom.
Signals to Boost!
The Kickstarter is up for Plunge Magazine. Guys, I want to write for this magazine! Help make it happen?
