I like the cobble pad for the wood stove.
Nice! I like innovative scrap built homes.
Is that a wooden barrier/wall between the blue covered couch and the stove? looks kinda close to the stove from the photo angle? heat transfer... possible fire hazard... just wondering...
Sweet pad. It’s all I would ever need however.......My kids be reproducing and stuff. I can’t miss a thing. (Except the initial part of course)
Check out the sales site, it has a slew of pics.
Might be OK if the barrier is a reflector.
But appears to be a smoke trap at the end, so!
Well, there is "Home made" and there is "Home made death trap".
I was appalled at the rural nature of what to me can only be called a shack
You may remember the story earlier this year of the greenhorn that burned himself out of hosue and home (plastic covered shack).
There are, however, well build cabins here
old school, smaller, but still much safer
with the nice ones built from a 'kit' of parts
it's not just Alaska - I see too many "Tiny Homes" built from "recycled materials" that are hovels (ie by definition - a small, squalid, unpleasant, or simply constructed dwelling.)
(Video) Teenager Builds an Off Grid Tiny House That's Made Out of 80% Recycled Materials - Wow!
however, as a young person with limited funds, I suppose you do what you have to.
I have lived in one of these, rent free, for weeks at a time
it suckd less than an even small tent....
Bears gonna get ya!
I carried a GAU-5 (CAR 15)
Looks like urethane foam oozing out of gaps in the ceiling. That stuff burns like crazy.
...and that woodstove lacks clearance to flammable surfaces.
Yup. Welcome to Alaska.
Sadly, too many 'homes' all over the US look more like this fire trap (hovel) than a livable structure.
With just a single barrel stove, I doubt it was even all that warm in the winter. That area (near Fairbanks) can hit -80F in the winter. Been there, froze that off.
Personally I prefer a one room cabin , life at its simplest.
That's probably why they gave up after only four years...
People should have the right to live in whatever they want. I laugh at all this crap about not being able to live in an RV trailer or motorhome. Not my choice, but others should have the right to live in whatever they want.
Yup. If folks want to live in fetid squalor, fine by me. Just so long as they are not next door.
DKR, you've got a pretty nice tent.
Nah - it belonged to the the Air Force. I just crashed there a few weeks out of he year.
