Thanks to all who have checked out (scroll to the other most recent entry below) the latest edition of “Tiny Yellow House” TV. As of my last check, we’ve received over FIVE THOUSAND, THREE HUNDRED views in a mere 48 hours or so.
(If you want sketches/details/material lists on this stove, read on further below)
First, a huge thanks, again, is owed to Stuart Pollack, at http://www.afewgoodplants.com, who more or less made the episode possible, by helping out and backing what I do. I’ve planted some of his seeds some time ago as well, and they’re doing GREAT! Update/photos to come…..and yes, we’re still looking for people to help back some future, already slated episodes, so we can afford gear rental, and so on. firstname.lastname@example.org for info.
Upcoming- Solar Cooking/heat episodes, one with Jay Shafer of the Tiny Tumbleweed House Company, another on a brand new Clark Junglehammock ( http://www.junglehammock.com ) I picked up (the thing’s awesome!!!- its a tree-hanging TENT!), and perhaps one on Martha’s Vineyard and the gingerbread cottages over there.
Anyway, thanks to all the people who emailed, most inquiring about the Vegetable Oil Heater (woodstove alternative) in my little cabin (“The gypsy junker”). Several readers from Michael Janzen’s http://www.tinyhousedesign.com, and from Kent Griswold’s http://www.tinyhouseblog.com contacted me, asking for more details on the stove.
Long story-short, we initially planned on shooting the stove in more detail, but with time and budget constraints (I had to squeeze TWO shows into one day), we had to put it off until later. But, all along we have planned on doing a more-detailed shoot on this tiny, ALL-JUNK heater….so we’ll get crackin’ on it, once we get some time.
Kent Griswold has also, graciously, gone so far as to ask me to be a guest writer for his site, where I’ll soon post sketches, and a detailed run/listing of how this little hunk-o-junk was created- MacGuyver Style!
So, keep checkin’ back- AND, as the schematics of the stove were intially planned to be released in my follow up book (to “Humble Homes, Simple Shacks…”), for any of those who order my existing book in the meantime (and ask/remind me)- i’ll add the addendum drawings and plans for this stove, in thanks- even though they were meant for a future tome.
The book can be ordered with the info on the righthand column of this site…
