Whoops! Some woods girl🙄 don't even know which direction I'm going! I meant northWEST of Rhinelander, West of minocqua. What town are you near? The above posts indicated you were looking in several places so I wasn't sure where you settled.
The cold definably slows things up! My "available materials" pile is under a foot of snow. Between the two my building has pretty much stalled out for now. Although I have a pretty solid structure. I haven't figured out a proper draft system so an inside fire is nearly impossible until I can get on the roof safely and work on a chimney. Therefore, not warm enough to hang out there more than a couple hours at a time. Fortunately rent is cheap at my husband's house. Lol
I'm already itching for spring to finish it up, and then work on garden, and chimney, and settling in etc. While not do "settled" that I could move on if the right opportunity/community opened up.
But yeah I would love to pop over and check stuff out. And maybe pick your brain about a fire pit inside without smoking myself out. I have been spoiled by woodstoves and metal chimneys without having to really to know exactly how draft/draw actually works so that I can make use of it.
For sure in the spring. But maybe, if you aren't too far away, it would be a nice break if we get some decent weather. 20° is nice.
