Heating and cooling from Menards: I broke down and bought insulation for...



Subscribe here www.youtube.com/c/ourtinycabinproject

In this video Charles takes a trip down to Menards to see what is to see in the way of wood burning stove supplies, tiny house heating options and insulation. This past weekend Jon and Princess Frostbite froze their frosty bits off down at the cabin. The real question is, is the Dickinson solid fuel stove just not capable of heating 120 square feet with out over heating the stove? Or, will insulating the ceiling and floor make that much of a difference that the micro tiny stove will keep Our Tiny Cabin Project nice and toasty in the winters to come.... we shall see!

Charcoal in the Dickinson heater: Fall at the tiny house


Subscribe now www.youtube.com/c/ourtinycabinproject

In this video Charles talks about the Dickinson Newport
solid fuel heater. This is a  multi-fuel
stove that can burn wood, pellets, presto logs, coal and yes charcoal to heat
up small spaces. Originally designed for luxury boats Dickinson slowly has been
carving a niche into the tiny house community. Jon and Charles did not like the
idea of propane as a fuel source but were very interested in the renewable
energy possibilities that were provided by this unique, micro wood stove. Also,
in the video Charles does some scouting around the property to make way for
fall activates and prospect new areas that could prove well for mother nature
to provide. If you have not already look at the entire inhalation series of the
Dickinson stove or feel free to binge watch Charles and Jon convert a small
shed into an affordable, off the grid, micro tiny home. Hidden off in the boot
hills of the Missouri Ozarks, you know its going to be an adventure.

Weather proof Walmart tent?



subscribe here! www.youtube.com/c/ourtinycabinproject

   Rain proofing a Walmart tent. In this video Jon and Charles take a few moments to show you how to put up the Ozark Trail Tipi tent and how to weather proof it. Weather proofing a tent is a great idea to extend the seasonal use and its overall life as well. The sealer adds a layer of UV protection to the tent, besides just protecting you and your gear from the elements. A couple cans of scotch guard can easily put any cheap tent up in the league of those high dollar name brand ones... Well maybe not, but for the price, ya cant complain.

If your considering getting this tent for a holiday gift or birthday present for a loved one who is an outdoors enthusiast, you can check out our comprehensive look at the tent here https://youtu.be/r1xaDhI_QXM

Ozark Trail Tipi tent: Our tiny houses guest house!



Please subscribe at www.youtube.com/c/ourtinycabinproject
The Ozark Trail Tipi tent! In this video Jon gives you the run down of the Ozark Trail 7 person tipi. The main idea for the use of this tent is it will serve as a guest house down at the tiny house, off the grid, in the Ozarks of Missouri. They could not have thought of a more fitting brand of a tipi, for on top of an Ozark mountain, other than the Ozark Trail 7 person Tipi! Jon and Charles are not sponsored by Ozark Trail but they do appreciate the budget, quality camping gear that they bring you and this tent is no exception to the outstanding quality that Ozark Trial provides.
