I received a "candy" email and it said there would be more candy coming later. Did I miss the second email or is it just not time yet?
Thanks.

I am watching the Fire Science DVD that was kickstarter "candy" and I am at the part where Erica/Ernie explain about how to store firewood and the importance of a woodshed. We don't currently have a woodshed and have been using a tarp. I would like to find woodshed plans that are functional but when I search online, it's hard to know what is a good design and what is not. Could I get a recommended website that shows a good design? Even better if it has specific plans. Also I would like to know more about using clear corrigated (roofing?) material like an attendee mentioned in the video. Is that a good option? cheaper? Just for the roof or sides also? Thanks so much for any help. Newbie here as you can probably tell by the admission of using a tarp

Good thoughts. Thanks again Chris. I have been looking at Honda generators (EM6500). Do you think it is worth the extra money for one? What about the surges or whatever it is called that affects sensitive things like electronics? I am trying to find one used but they are still considerably more.

Thanks again everyone for the replies.

Big Al, do you have a recommend for indoor cooking with wood heat? Here is what I would like to buy but was curious if there were other options that were "better": http://www.antiquestoves.com/ashlandstove/index.htm

Thanks all for the replies

Big Al, nope, not trying to kill anyone, that's why I'm asking I was told that in 3rd world countries that they are using them indoors. I realize they might have a big hole in the top of their hut but figured there might be a way to ventilate. I am not strong in the science area so I'm just trying to understand what is possible. Better to ask here amongst those who understand trying to find alternative ways to do it than to ask someone locally that I need help from! lol
Thanks again for the help

Thank you for both of the replies. I should have been more specific about what I meant. While I would like to be off-grid someday, right now we are just trying to find a backup power source and I wondered if there is any way we could get a small solar system that would be enough for short term power outages. My guess is that it is not practical but you never know until you ask people who really know
