Well looks like we won't go cold this winter - when we left the motel, we brought our outdoor wood furnace along. this place already had an wood-fired air-tranfer system with a rockpit reservoir (also homemade) in place but the registers are close to the middle of the cabin so the airflow was backwards so we usually had cold feet. this unit meant building a foundation, moving the heater & shed, digging down pipes and setting up the reservoir (which meant closing-in the sunporch) and hydronic system - well i have the heater shed in place and the reservoir is hooked up and the porch is windproofed, so i started testing what i had. with all that happened this summer and a few pesky leaks, just that much took til now. hopefully the hydronic system will fall in place cuz i'm running plumb out of season, but at least it is warming the tank so so far so good :)

Sounds like a plan. Least you won't have to be paying those dang high natural gas prices come this winter. Makes me not turn the furnace on til everybodys got icicles hanging from their noses! Its ridiculous how much it goes up in the winter a therm. Just plain robbery. Maybe I will get some space heaters, just to rebel. :)
