Heat & Water

by Tyler

Today, I arranged a meeting with a master gas fitter to see about hooking up a propane regulator on the outside of the cottage. Our current plan is to run our oven and on-demand hot water heater with a pair of 40lb tanks. Someday it would be nice to plumb in a line from a huge buried tank, but that isn't in the cards this year.

Then, I drove an hour to Troy, New York to buy a 250 gallon, food grade IBC water tank (found on craigslist), and stopped at The Stove Depot to pick up our tiny wood stove, the Morso 1440!

When I drove up with our new heat and water solutions in tow, Tara threw her hands up and cheered, and then proceeded to hug our cute little stove. She and I carried the 215lb firebox into the house by ourselves and ogled it for a bit before getting back to work. Soon, we'll have a hearthstone, and install a stove pipe!
