Good Morning Patrick is there a way to chat with you?
I have researched the cord wood method of building. I also have 2 chainsaws and know how to use them. LOL

Almost forgot the barn is all wood even the floor. I sourced a small rug I layed on the floor to help with the cold.

I do have plenty of blankets and cold weather clothing. The reason I am in search of wood burning solution is the massive amount of downed trees the storm left behind and it is killing me that it is all being wasted. The beautiful live oaks are gone and going to be wasted. I do have a tent outside setup to hold water bottles and MRE boxes. As I said my situation is better than some and I have been researching ways to turn my place into an off grid homestead for a long time. The storm has forced me to start whether I wanted to or not LOL. I do appreciate the concern thank you.

The barn was used for storage so I had not bothered with insulation or etc.. it is a small weather king. half the roof was messed up but have a decent tarp on it at the moment. I am in better shape than some whom are still in tents. I use a cooler for food and that is ok. I like the propane heater tho it looks a little scary LOL the price is very good.

Just found this wonderful forum this morning. I live in a hurricane Micheal zone and my house is unlivable. I am staying in my barn with my 13 yr old, I am a 57 yr old female. There is no insulation in the barn and the electric is not enough to run any good size heater the small 1 I do have will blow the breaker if not careful. I am looking for a fast wood burning solution that is doable for me. Money is extremely tight at the moment or I would have already purchased a tent stove for in here. Freezing in Florida. Any ideas would be most helpful. I already tried the flower pot method and that was a no go. Thank you Patricia
