This video shows me burning paper blocks. I’ve been making them for years. I like to bake mine under glass in the sun. My block maker is pretty beat up, but you already saw that in the first video. The wood logs are all but gone and the paper blocks are still burning. Homesteading, free heat, wood stove, wood furnace, paper logs
These five devices make life easier by automating the stuff that gets left on or by keeping your devices ready to go. The water heater timer alone has saved us 22% electric usage. Automating the lights and fart fan keep you from burning energy when you might not need to and the usb outlets keep everything up and running.

It’s been in the negative temperatures at TheLowCashHomestead. We have been using our backup heating source to dump a ton of heat into our house. The Daka wood furnace is well built and so easy to use, it is basiclly fully automatic features simple controls and& puts out a ton of heat. I got mine delivered from northerntool.

We just got started with homeschooling. I was having some trouble getting started. Yes I can give them everyday lessons in all kinds of ways, but I felt like I needed a focal point, a place to start.
Below are the links to the books that I bought.

In the fall after the gardens have run their course we pile them over with yard waste as a mulch and ground cover. The yard waste starts breaking down over the winter helping to condition the soil for spring.
