A RATHER UNUSUAL Homemade Space Heater/Heat for your tiny house/cabin/workshop.....

Here's a great little video from Steven Harrell, who has really been stepping things up with his videos and diy projects over at www.tinyhouselistings.com. This particular video shows a heater he built that utilizes tea lights, and thermal lag, to hold the released heat for a greater period of time. Its based on the idea of the flower pot room heaters that have been going viral online, but with a better twist, in my opinion. His video tutorial is pretty thorough, as he even takes timed temperature readings as the heater begins to warm up the room.

Basically, this little space heater is made with candles, a metal paint can with holes drilled into it for air intake, with a cast iron skillet sitting on the pail (filled with broken bits of bricks), which has a cover placed atop it (for greater thermal mass and absorption).

Check out the video, I think you'll enjoy it....


AND, for those who missed my last video- A TREE HOUSE tour- one I built and designed just outside of Boston, MA- here that one is as well.

  1. As usual, you make the most ingenious DIY projects! This is a wonderful idea for heating houses when there’s an emergency like a power outage, or when your heater breaks down. I only wished it could work on larger houses. I’ll definitely watch more of your videos in the future.

  2. The really useful things you can find :) We're never really lacking in avenues and alternatives in securing good heating for our homes. Whether it's the DIY grafts or the new models on the stores, there's a bevy of stuff we can handpick to serve our purposes and benefits. What is consistent though, is the availability of fine help in any eventuality.

  3. You’re like MacGyver! You can make complex things from seemingly simple objects around the house. It’s a good way to cut energy costs. Given our difficult economic situation, it really helps to be creative. Great job!
