The music, videos, and polemic of John Ludi, random scourge.
You are doing what I' have always wanted to do.I'm sure you have already heard of this but, for heating have you ever looked into a Rocket Mass Heater. Very efficient, uses a lot less wood, and is very inexpensive to make. Check out youtube when you get a chance. I think, from what I have seen of your situation, it will benefit you immensely in cold weather.I live in Belmont, Wisconsin, if possible and when I am physically able, I would like to visit and see your setup.Best wishes,Tom Byrne
