I am beginning to build a tiny house in southwestern Nova Scotia (Canada) where it is pretty damp and cold. I am not interested in having any electricity in the house which makes finding a simple, safe alternative for cooking somewhat of a challenge. I have looked at wood stoves, propane, alcohol and just about everything else. They are so expensive it is ridiculous!!! Does anyone have any ideas how to make this work? Am scouring kijiji and various online sales all to no avail. Getting desperate now.... help!!!
What you consider cheap or safe may be different than mine, but I could live with any of these.
"You must be the change you want to see in the world." "First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win." --Mahatma Gandhi
"Preach the Gospel always, and if necessary, use words." --Francis of Assisi.
"Family farms work when the whole family works the farm." -- Adam Klaus
I used one of these when power was out for several days, one roughly 2 ounce charge of denatured alcohol would cook a 3 egg omelette and boil enough water for a large hot coco/coffee/tea with no problems.
Remember to always leap before you look. But always take the time to smell the tiny ads:
