A bunch of us sat on the barrels. About 85 degrees F.
We talked about something to put over it. Cob was mentioned. But the thing about cob is that it will make it take longer until the warmth gets to your butt. And then it will continue to be warm long after you have walked away - with nobody appreciating the warmth. Mud thought it might be best to leave the metal exposed although we did talk about some potential coverings. I suspect it might be years until it is covered with anything.

We moved it back into the berm shed...the bays now are to small for it to fit into one berm stall....there are also angle posts in the back of each berm stall.....so we threaded the barrels through one of the angle posts; it now occupies the second to last and last stall of the berm shed
....the barrels did separate at the joints a little so we'll have to fit them back together ...and we'll have to move the rocket stove which feeds it.
Was the idea of using full barrels simply to forgo the need to cut them in half or was there more to it? How many barrels did you end up using, including the combustion upright? Were you able to sit on the end at the beginning of the run?
