Breaking News: WE HAVE HEAT!!!!!

Anyone who has followed this prefab house kit construction blog knows our saga of heat and long quest for a working, safe for a SIP house, heartfelt and special wood stove.

Breaking News: Just got an email from Jason Dorris:



I will be styling that south room more, maybe painting the pipe silver... I'll see once we put it all together.
But: We. Have. HEAT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I am still getting used to the difference a chimney makes in the off grid prefab house kit's architectural outline and aesthetics.
Before, the zero energy prefab house kit had a sleek, edgy, coolly aloof look.



With that pipe rising high and proud above the roofline it...
It reminds me of old tin toys, of happiness... there's something overwhelmingly FRIENDLY about it, something reminiscent of Wall - E or... R2D2!!!

Terribly cute, but TERRIBLY important: critical.



P.s. LATER NOTE: A green building friend made a great comment on my Facebook page I'd like to remind everyone - you can't just plop a wood stove / fireplace into an energy efficient house.

I went over this (NOTE: READ THE LINKED ARTICLES) in an earlier post here:
http://prefab-green-home.greenmodernkits.com/2010/06/fireplaces-woodstoves-heating-and-old.html

But basically: sealing the fire box, air exchange, and more are critical to successfully implement such a device in a SIP (or any energy efficient) house.
