cold box, canoes and cabins
This gentleman is an inspiration. He is unafraid to tackle anything with creativity and his own two hands. Check out the cabin that he built from harvesting trees from the bay around the 12:30 mark…amazing!
Rocket Hot Water Heater

How sustainable is using wood (ie trees) for power and heat? I guess that depends how heavily wooded our land is…however for most, this probably isn’t sustainable. But could it be? I […]
