Yeah, I wish but God forbid when a Hurricane knocks it down. It will cost 100,000,000 in repairs now with inflation and 7 years to get it fixed due to shortages. 🙂
Not if u have insurance. what ya gonna do when that storm damages where u live now and the landlord says u gotta go? At least in your own home your the master of the domain, it’s harder to kick you out.

True, it would be nice to be the master. I would just go rent another place. Probably stay in a hotel until I found one. I travel light. :)

The door always stays shut. There is a damper at top. See the brass knob. As well for a better clearer picture click on it. I ain't no sucky baby. I sleep with a duvet. If it gets a bit nippy when I get up to use the washroom I will reload it. I smoke the wood so it lasts forever. My house is very well insulated. I use my furnace as back up. Or electric space heaters. It is all good. Plus northern girls like to keep their boyfriends warm at night.

So you can keep the door shut and the heat flows out that horizontal vent hole?

Nope. But close. The air goes into the stove through there. I usually run a fire with it open. Then once the stove gets hot I shut it off. Put a window fan on to blow air over it. Cut the air flow to almost zero. That stove is ready to go anyways. Next time my house insurance wants to inspect it out it goes. Probably not replace it. The guy that installed my new Trane furnace thinks I will spend 50 us a month on gas. So why bother with a wood stove. Remember I said yous should move to Tampa. ..the last direct hurricane hit was 100 years ago. I have been there twice. I hate it cus the love of my life dumped me for a very rich man who is was old enough to be her grandfather and then tried hard to get me fired..100 years ago Sarnia was bigger than Tampa and Sarnia is a small city.

Yup onward and forward it was a long time ago but something hard to forget...umm let's just say I do not always turn the other cheek lol.......Oh no it is extremely effecient. You do not want heat escaping your house through the chimney. Picture this. It gets so hot with the door open the stove is not black it is orange. So the damper is always closed unless I come home and start a fire. I am a city boy not origionally from here...Living in downtown ish Sarnia I feel like I am camping or at the cottage. Walking distance to beautiful great lakes system ..lots of big trees and my wood stove.. very friendly but not nosy neighbours.

I just bought the best propane conversion for my Honda. Been wanting it for a while now and I think now is the time.

Propane never really expires
Burns clean
Doesn’t clog your carb
Also will run my Big buddy heater

It’s a win win.

Yup just never know. A category 1 hurricane is hitting extreme eastern Canada tonight. I have been there and it is an awesome place to visit. I hope everybody will be safe and no loss of life.

Not looking good. I saw NY, NJ got 9+ inches when all that flooding happened. Not sure if that was in a few hours, a day, or a week.

This could turn into Harvey real quick:

With Larry from what I heard they got a bit of building damage and a bit of flooding. Nothing too catiastrophic so far. It is... for the most part solid hilly rock so should drain off pretty good. Avalon peninsula Saint John's NFLD and area.
