Dickinson solid fuel stove, how it works.

  Dickinson Newport Solid Fuel Heater, in this video Charles
gives a run down on how this stove operates and the easiest way he has found to
get a blazing hot fire cookin in it. Starting out with a basic overview of the
stoves viewing screen, damper controls, removable ash tray, he then moves into
making the fire bed, fire starter and air control to get that perfect burn. For
the fire bed he uses sever pieces of wood, about the thickness of a finger and
positions them inside the Dickinson stoves fire box in the shape of a teepee.
Then underneath that teepee he places an esbit fuel fire starter. This is the
easiest way to start your fire bed and at the same time warm up your chimney, to
prevent smoke back drafting into you tiny house. Once the fire bed has started
to turn into coals, Charles then adds a nice thick chunk of wood. He has found
that pieces about as tick as your wrist and about 3 to 4 inches in length work
the best. This wood stove is pretty easy to over fuel. With this in
consideration it is best to start off slow and work you way up in temperature to
find out exactly what your set up can handle safely. If you are interested in
how this stove was installed, subscribe so you can see the entire installation
series. If you have any further questions, drop them in the comments below!

Started our tiny house with only $600. Including cost of land!

A tiny house for under $10,000? Yup, that is right! In this video  Charles talks about how he and Jon started their tiny house adventure with only $600, including the cost of the land! Charles goes into detail on how they accomplished this task and the stages they did it. After seeing many blogs, and threads, complaining at the outrageous costs of the tiny homes today, he decided to  make this video.  He wanted to show that it is still possible to get a tiny house built with basic construction skills. And, how to do it at a cost that could fit just about any budget.
