Burning down the house!

Heat. This is the biggest question right now.

Wood burning stoves are romantic and gorgeous but they also throw a lot of heat! The stove that I posted a while ago would basically melt my space once it was up and running at full capacity.

I looked propane heaters but the standard ones sold in Canada are for garages and well ventilated spaces.  My homes it going to be well insulated and sealed to combat heat loss so this type of heat make me a little leery. There are also Catalytic Heaters found in RVs, but they are not CSA approved and infrared heaters are not allowed in living/sleeping spaces due to safety issues.

Thankfully I stumbled on the website LivingLightly and their post on Small Wood Stoves.

Looks like the Hobbit Small Cast Iron Stove is what I have been waiting for!

Reaching out

floorplan-taperemovalThe layout is done and the tape has come off the floor. Next step, creating the blueprint to build off of.

From the beginning of this process I have never wanted to be the Building Foreman but I had to be the Architect! I love organizing space and making it work for me so this part of the journey had to be mine and mine alone. Originally I had a friend on board who was going to take over the construction side of things once I had the floor plan in place but life happened and that has changed. Thankfully there are hundreds of Tiny Home people out there so now I am on the search for my BluePrint person!

I have emailed these two guys …. so here’s hoping
