It's only August, but woodstoves will be on our minds here in the mountains soon enough. What are some of the advantages and disadvantages?
If you live in the woods like we do, there is plenty of wood.
You have to gather wood, and that's a disadvantage when you're out of it. But if the electricity goes off or the gas gives out, you're alright if you've got wood. We love these wood stove kettles and wood stove steamers for water to drink and give your home humidity!
A good idea if you're trying to be prepared, as individuals and communities, for unexpected events such as extreme weather. This is a practical solution for power outages and cooking food and water.
