Got more work done the past couple days. I've been pushing forwards to get some cabinet work done. I want the cabinets to have doors so dishes and such aren't falling from the heavens while traversing bumpy roads. I've also been making some headway with the wood stove installation.
Here's a shot of the cement board heat shield around the wood stove. There will also be a stainless steel heat shield 2 inches out from the cement board.
Here you can see the side vents. The intent is for the metal and cement board heat shields to warm up, thus creating an upward draft which will pull air from the floor. I will install a couple 12v computer fans down by the intake if the draft doesn't move enough air.
The lower hole is the air intake vent. The upper hole is a compartment for firewood. This is all over top of the wheel well.

And this is why I need an additional heat source! This little dinky guy just ain't cutting it, though with enough time it was able to raise the ambient temperature from -9°C to 9°C (15°F to 48°F). Enough to take the chill off, anyhow.
