The other night was a lot of fun. We fired up the mass heater and listened to music and danced. The acoustics in the round room are amazing. Our couch not only provided a toasty place to sit, but made our tea for us too. We’re looking forward to cooking all kinds of things on it.
And for the bulk of the cooking and additional warmth in the kitchen, there is this wood cookstove.
Having water is kind of important. Our inside tank now has almost 6000 litres of harvested rainwater stored for the winter.
