I crochet my own dish cloths.  A number of my YouTube subscribers buy them.  They aren't fancy, but they are great at scrubbing pots and pans, especially cast iron.

The price of propane to keep my home warm is incredibly expensive. As of this year, I am in no position to pay for propane for the winter. That said, I am in Northeast Georgia in a double wide mobile home. I know there are fireplaces in mobile homes so I know I could create a rocket stove for heat inside. My problem is I'm just one woman! I have no welding skills although I have built with wood (and very successfully) and am very handy. My homestead is only a couple of acres and I've already built gardens, chicken coop, raised workshop floor, and workshop area with bench. Not bad since moving in October of 2013.

Now is the time to get ready for winter. The build will take me some time. Can anyone help with material suggestions, build suggestions, insulation, etc.? Money is incredibly tight so keep that in mind.

Thanks for any help you may have.

I'm in Northeast Georgia and am on the side of a slope that is, indeed, north-facing. Argh! It gets very hot here so maybe that's a good thing. Yay! I have yet to begin a permaculture. The slope is covered with trees in a messy, awful tangle all the way down to the creek at the back of the property. I have no money for excavation sooooo....... I guess I'm going to do it all by hand. The chicks are growing, though, and I can't wait to start sweating!
