properly built rmh ... matters not which way your wood leans or if it falls flat in the bottom... its burning completely up anyway.
.. new 3/16" steel you will get about 3 - 4 seasons out of it before it is warped and spauled.... Your air restricter / wood holder would last a bit longer.

If your into clean water, look for area’s that the bottle water companies have wells around. We found it to be a good indicator that the water around is good.

This way if we are not on the same page we won’t waste anyone’s time.
Plus, it’s been about a year that we took notes, so talking, seeing a map, and finding some notes would stir up our memory as to what is what.

Kate Muller wrote:When looking for properties keep in mind that there are state and local restrictions on "wet lands" Basically they severely limit what can be built within X number of feet of the designated wet land. These regulations can make a lot unbuildable. Also watch out for deed restrictions, and seasonal camps. These are cottages that are zoned so you can't live in them year round and some people will complain if you try and live in them all year.
Kate Muller wrote:Like much of Northern New England NH regulations, zoning, permits, house and lot size minimums, and other aspects of "the department of making you sad" varies dramatically from town to town. I suggest researching each town's regulations before you settle down somewhere.

On the other hand there's ways to do things that work really well in VT.
You have to know how to work it. Right now you can build solar, and be legally completely off the grid. On our VT property we could build a LARGE hunting lodge and pay no additional taxes.
Before we diss VT, remember, it's a sweet state, one area code, and plenty of room to relax.
