If you enjoyed this video, subscribe to our YouTube channel

Easy way in install off the grid electric. In this video Jon and Charles show you how they, effectively, installed electric into their off the grid tiny house. Their cabin is 100% off the grid, solar powered but also has the ability to hook up to a generator. Having a cabin that is wired for solar power, or that can easily accept power from a generator allows them to have a more comfortable stay when off the grid and have several options for power. It also lowers the monthly cost of maintaining the property dude to the fact there is absolutely no electric bill.

Masks that wont break the bank

If you enjoyed this video please subscribe:

  In this video Charles talks about mask that are easy to get that wont break the bank. Rest assured that you can BREATH EASY knowing you got a quality mask for next to nothing. In this video Charles covers the GP5 Russian mask and the Israeli Civilian. The Gp5 can be had for roughly 11 dollars. For that price you should expect to get a mask, a arry bag and a few old canisters. The Israeli mas has been going up in price, given recent events, and you will be looking to spend, roughly around 30 to 40 dollars. For this price you should expect to get; the mask, a drinking straw and an old canister.  As it goes with anything the newer in production the mask, the more its going to cost. The same thing can be said for the canisters. ABEKP3 filters, Nato filters will fit the Israeli mask and some say the ABECK filters will fit the Gp5. Though both mask are 40mm, the Gp5 has Gost threading and Nato has a standard. With this in mind canisters are not exactly interchangeable, sort of...  Polish cans will fit both masks ans some say ABEKP3 cans will also do the same. However, most Nato canisters will not fit the GP5. When it comes to buying canisters common sense must play apart... The older the filter, the less protection is in order. But, hey, it beats a milk soaked dew rag. In date canisters you can spend upwards to 40 to 60 bucks a can, whereas ones just a few years old past expired date can be had for  around 12 bucks. Take into consideration how the cans are stored, are they; vac packed in mylar,  are they in a sealed box, are they loose with a suspicious looking sticker or do they have nothing at all.  A properly sealed air tight can should be good indefinitely... but again the only way you can be sure is to have one in date.

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!

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.

Finishing the Dickinson wood stove, walls, solar mods and more.

Rising the walls, framing the windows and finishing off the wood stove! In this video Jon and Charles head down to the cabin for a weekend getaway. With a much needed break from St. Louis city life they needed an escape from the craziness going on. Although, the break from the city was needed most of this trip was spend completing long overdue work on the cabin. They got the last 4 panels of the walls up and the windows framed out. They shimmed the Dickinson Newport Solid fuel stove off the wall and added some flashing behind it. They also moved the battery bank out of the cabin and put it under the tiny house. While working on the solar system they discovered the Harbor Freight system had failed and fried. They decided to just un hook the system and solely run their Renogy system. This was a prime example of why it’s a good idea to have your solar system split into two systems because if something break, which it will, you are not reliant on the generator for the entire weekend. If you want to check out the entire stove install process check out these videos.
