Jim, too much mass under the dura board, which is not insulative.

Best way, use insulating firebricks.  Or even better superwool board.  Or vermiculite board, under those bricks.  You coule get by with rigidized rockwool/roxul, with your dura board on top, for example.

Worth reading the whole thread.


Mine, heating the two floors, with barely any insulation, 5000ft elevation, in the french alps.

Fox, did you do tangential entry, like Takeshi Uneo, or Ppotty?

Hi everybody.

Well, i have read that  doing seed balls wasn't really worth it with corn/maize.

I'm wondering, since the road is nearby, and can get busy, should i worry about pollutants much?

Thanks a lot.

I'm looking for a place to live and then you show us what you've got.  To top it off, you've got access to French cuisine and wine and you're asking about potatoes?  With French women to top it all off?

I might as well just give up ;)


Timothy, there's is barely any women here, and far too many ski instructors, piste patrol guys, and all the sporty guys!  So they're not interested in a fatty like me!



I was wondering. Does corn copes with wet feet? I have plenty of rustic corn to plant. Red, multi color sweet. Some chili peppers too.

Would heavy rain/ melting snow on nearby peaks lead to flash flooding along that torrent? Has it happened before?



Not from the last thirty years.

Not this year either, snow was scarce.
