hardware, purchased new - nails, screws, door hardware, etc.
I think it's cool we used some logs and lumber from the land, and I think using reclaimed lumber, and reusing items for other components is also neat. Someone who is really reuse savvy could likely build it for far less than what we did at wheaton labs. We're amassing some awesome supplies and storage areas for being able to build more resourcefully going forward.
We are currently working on a 4 inch rocket mass heater for the love shack. It currently has a solar collector on it which keeps it at a livable temperature. I also have plenty of blankets to keep warm and my mouse friends. lol
It isn't connected to water at all the only water is whatever I bring there. The solar collector works in the winter, there is generally a good amount of sunny days and the love shack holds heat pretty well.
If no one from the future comes to stop you is it really that bad of a decision?
Open the window to see the volcano and spot wild turkeys passing by and walk out from the sweet lil shack to a beautiful view of the morning sun rise over the mountains.
come grab a bunk in the beloved love shack!
