We had another trip to prepare for, so in went the stairs/ladder and we finished up the exterior paint (aside from the door and touch-ups). After getting back from the northern VA adventures, it was time to finish the propane lines! Finally we could test the water heater, oven/stove, and the Newport P9000. As much as I wanted a woodstove (and still have the one I bought sitting in storage), this little heater is a good option for tiny houses because of how little clearance it needs around itself. I ended up buying the woodstove from myself to save for another house down the road 🙂
Besides all these pictures, I have a video treat for you all coming up. If only I could get it to load…I took today off from work, so I’ll do my best to post the vid today sometime in between my various construction projects.

It may seem a little early to think about heating the wee house, but it’s actually pretty appropriate so I know how to alter the framing if needed. Will a window be in the way, how will it vent, will it take forever to ship, etc.? So I’m down to 3 options after a ton of research:
Tiny wood stove
Tiny gas stove
So far the Facebook poll I put up has the wood stove winning. That’s the ideal choice in my head, but I’m not sure about reality. If I can get the used one, I’m in! But if it’s sold by the time I can make the 2 hour drive, then I’ll either have to buy a new one (ouch) or go with the gas one (also ouch).
