Even "Strong" wool is worth around a dollar a pound.
Now that leads me to the next aspect of wool as an insulation. I like wool insulation...this is not the same material that comes off the animal...by a long shot. It is highly processed and condition, as raw wool would never last as an insulation under the best of conditions, and the cleaning and processing that it would require is far outside the scope of a DIY project. So whether making felt for a Ger or Yurt (which I have done) or possibly specing wool batts for a structure I design and build...raw wool...as would be thrown away...is not going into either without lots and lots of processing...
What are your thoughts on a cooker inside the bus? What kind of cooker would you go for? What other things do we have to consider like the moisture from the cooking, or the airflow to stop us gassing ourselves?

Question about woodstove heating/cooking. What about Carbon Monoxide? I know with the woodstove in our house, the city requires us put CO detectors next to each bedroom and special vents in the wall. Of course, being a gas that sinks, the city demands that we put the detectors at eye height or on the ceiling.
Just imagining in a small space, it may be more of a problem? I don't know much about CO gas, so maybe it isn't an issue for this instance.
look! it's a bird! it's a plane! It's .... a teeny tiny ad
