I believe he did blown in insulation on top of the metal. I like that idea as well.

Super bright in there with metal, easy to clean, and with it and insulation it stays warm or cold for hours.
Love it..
Feels air conditioned when its 80 out..

Got the boiler set in place Tonight yaay!
Hopefully next week I get it all set ready to rock!





Had to rent a lil pettibone to set it..and another trencher to get lines buried for the water.


The new shorter trailer hauls tons better than the old 30 footer.
Awesome!

Started my first fire in this thing this week! Got antsy, lol
It has been on the same load of wood for 82hours now, granted it hasn't had any load..but loving the continuous hot water in the house. .and simply being able to turn the thermostat up to warm the house up.

First fire, getting stove to temp


Day 2 fire


So happy to be done with this! One less thing on the list.
