EPISODE 259 TINY HOUSE WOOD STOVE IDEAS

Today’s episode is on how i would build a tiny house wood stove. the problem with having a tiny house wood stove is the fact that space is a premium in a tiny house, so having a wood stove there full time is a waste of space. Also i talk about the challenges of making a tiny house wood stove small enough to ship. the reason for this is i wanted to build one and send it to James at survivalpunk.com for his tiny house. If i could make a good prototype i may sell them online or something. One thing is for certain if i can make a awesome prototype i may be able to ship it at a decent price> listen in today for some more of my thoughts on tiny house wood stoves and if you have any ideas leave a comment below.
