I wanted to share a video of our off grid living and projects we are working on to get us through the winter months.
In this video I am sharing the modifications to our Hot Blast wood stove/furnace and how these modifications have helped raise the temperature in this large steel building without insulation.
Being inside of a building like this is something that you have to really be careful with. If you have vehicles in and out you have to be careful with carbon monoxide. If you are using your furnace you are exhausting the furnace gasses right out into the building which could also result in carbon monoxide problems.
Even burning wood could result in carbon monoxide if you are not exhausting the stove properly. So having another carbon monoxide alarm outside your living quarters (in this case our RV) could also prove to be beneficial for your safety and health. The main thing is having good carbon monoxide alarms inside your living quarters!
If your are thinking about living off grid, or have off grid living and projects of your own, then let us know some of your projects as well as challenges you have faced. We’d love to hear from you!
I will be posting more off grid living and projects through pictures as well as videos for others to use and enjoy. This has been fun as well as challenging at times…but worth every minute of it.
In the spring we will be finishing our trenching for water lines and sharing video footage of this as well. Hauling our water for the last 7 months hasn’t been that bad. It’s cheap! It cost me a whopping $2.50 to fill our 300 gallon water tank at a nearby city water plant. This is city water that the city of Gladstone uses. However, the haul is about 30 minutes each way which takes some time and a little bit of gas, but it is still very cheap water.
This 300 gallon tank of water usually last us about 3 to 4 weeks, and that is with 2 of us taking daily showers. Not bad at all. 🙂
