The Fun Stuff

Well, I haven't been able to do any hardcore work on Autarkia these past two weeks because of my teaching gig.  Also I have another gig coming up next week doing other stuff, but I will start the hatches then anyway.  In the meantime, we are fitting the wood-stove to its wall mount, and will soon get the chimney stuff from Dickinson Marine.  And our oil lamps came in the mail today!

  1. Those lamps are beautiful. And so is the stove. Nothing like flickering flames seen through a whisky glass to make feel you warm and cosy!

  2. Wondering where you got the water tanks? Look nice with the access ports and about the size I was shooting for, if not a bit long. Thanks for the blog - enjoyed looking through it.

    1. Thanks for the comment Jim! I got them at Barr Plastics in Abbotsford BC. Here is the website: http://www.barrplastics.com/
      Both tanks came in around $500 including taxes. They put the access ports in per request and that was included in the price.
