They're not cheap, but seem to be quality and highly functional for small spaces.
Beware of CO poisoning (death) and lost sleep due to the CO detector going off constantly. The requirement to "vent" the space (open a window!?) you are heating seems silly when you are trying to heat that same small space. Additionally, drilling more holes in the roof seems an invitation to leaks. Just my opinion.

Keeping the "fire" outside and circulating hot water inside to a radiator using a solar powered (battery backed up) water pump seems a safer way to go and still use a free renewable fuel source. The pipes/hoses could be routed through the floor keeping the potential for leaks to a minimum.

Thanks herk, looks like a cool book. I'm not able to spend ten bucks on it right now. Maybe later. But I am reading creekmores blog. It has alot of helpful info.

As to my state of wellbeing, well..... I'm dead broke right now, behind on rent and truck payments, insurance, credits are long gone for months now and I've even got my brand new debit card overdrafted, which sucks bc it makes most all of my business dealings much quicker and easier.

But wait. An opportunity has appeared and is very close to fruition. Talked to my old boss at the satellite shop and although he won't admit it openly, he and the dispatcher are dying to have me back. The hours are brutal, 60+ per week, sometimes 100. But my pay always ran from $1000-3000 per week. So.... With my newfound realization of my personal economic situation I believe I can be pretty well set up, land, trailer, and all within a year. Which is a huge weight off my chest. So overall I'm doing well. Hope all of you out there I'm cyberland are too.
