Re: Mounting blackwater tank inside

Or you could just save water entirely and install a compost toilet :)

I'm looking into this idea myself... just picked up a book called "Humanure" all about the subject... intriguing read.

Re: Sheet metal over windows...

Started sheeting my windows today. Using 26 ga (yeah I know, thin) from Lowes. Also using Smitty's idea of shingles on the upright columns... looking pretty good so far.

Re: Got the woodstove in...

Sean... how is your composting toilet working out? I'm intrigued by the idea of not mounting a blackwater tank. Do you have more details on the design?

Not sure if I like the idea of raising it off the floor like that... but the tile & metal roofing material is a great idea.

Re: Sheet metal over windows...

I'm currently debating on what kind of insulation to use... I've heard fiberglass can hold water and cause rust. I'm thinking of styrofoam but can't find any rated higher than R5. Any suggestions?

Thanks for all your input. I'm going to go out and locate some metal fairly soon. I'm on a pretty tight budget, but also in no hurry to complete this project.

One other question... the window...

Sheet metal over windows...

Anyone have details pictures of covering window openings?

Basically my main question is how did you seal them? Did you use screws, rivets, or welding?

Thanks.
