we own , and are interested . but would not want to void our homeowners insurance, permanently damage our flooring  or buck building codes . so for me a unit that could be installed like our fireplace insert then removed returning the living room to the original configuration should a new owner want that would be perfect . at 75 and 63 we are more conventional and are aware that in a matter of years we may be down sizing . so we have to be aware of property values .
I would love to see a simple rocket stove bbq/ smoker plan added

I got interested at first because I am learning to make Konjac Glucomannan flour noodles , ( I am on a weight loss journey 18 lbs lost  and still 88 lbs from where I want to end up )  and I do not care for the texture plain so I have ordered oat bran to mix in  . I started thinking what else could I add to make soups and noodles more nutrient and fiber dense while staying low calorie  . kale powder is pricey but I have acres with loads of wild grape and there are things I do not care for as a pot herb that I would be fine with dried and ground as part of a noodle flour
  grape leaves have a bit much chew to use like spinach   but high fiber , vitamin A vitamin K and potassium

then I also have 44 acers of woodlands and meadow and a garden that was fallow last year that is full of purslane , lambs quarters chickweed  and nettles  I do not really care for these as a pot herb but I thought in a powdered mix I could use in cooking .
The green onions I have 2 rows of  and I already freeze lots but I do not want to add a second freezer

Ross Thank you for posting the Tudor video . loved it .
It is a great subject and thread , as so many of us have more need for fence than funds to build them .

Up here in Massachusetts we have loads of invasive wild rose and autumn olive I wonder if they could be moved and pruned into a proper hedge
