I am new to this site, just found it today and after reading thru about 4 hrs of posts I decided to reg. I have been living in my bus for about 5 months now. Bought it for $300, and have put about $200 into it to get it running, belts, etc. But now it's getting cold. I'm boondocking in Northeast GA, Athens, I rent a ministorage spot to store my stuff and there are outlets there which I have plugged up to to keep a sm heater running so I don't freeze. I have been thinking about how nice it would be to have some sort of wood burning stove, or enclosed fire place to heat the bus up when it's cold... and so I'm looking for suggestions/warnings/etc. I'm going to have to rig something to make it work, or find a free wood burning stove some how... I'm thinking if I put a layer of bricks down, and then bolt the thing in, run an inlet & outlet pipe from the barrel out a window I should be ok... right? I don't have money to buy anything so anything I'm going to be able to do would have to be something free or something I can rig up for next to free.
Here's a link to a gallery of pictures I've taken when I first got the bus, then when I was building in a bench seat down one side of the bus. There were 2 bed/storage compartments already, I took one out and reused the wood to make the bench.. but that's all I've been able to afford to do for now. Take a look here:
