|My Vermont cabin in shut-down mode (for the coming winter).|
We also managed to install a wood stove (finally!), and ran a long run of flue pipe from it so as to maximize the heat output (to let it radiate indoors, instead of out). While the new section of the cabin is far from done/sealed, it still is great to have that wood stove in there. We worked at night setting it up by gas-lantern lights (we have no electricity), and celebrated with a beer or two, in front of this cast iron beast. Those Coleman Lanterns have saved our asses and extended our work hours (and productivity) so many times- and they've taken a beating from us- and still are going strong! I posted, for the sake of convenience, a link to the exact model I have, below. I own two of these- one of them is about fourteen years old now, and still works great. The amount of light these give off really is incredible- in fact, all of the night shots of our "Tiny Yellow House" Vermont Cabin episode were shot under lantern light- and nothing but.

I was also able to take an array of other photos while we were in Vermont, from some cool treehouses I spotted, to the pumpkin hut/gazebo in the last post, and more. I'll work on getting those up here soon.
