quilt on top of comforter...
i stayed at crazy mtn ranch montana, their quilts were so heavy they PINNED
you to the bed, you could not move..
when i got back i built one with a layer of wool too,
maybe a layer of an aluminum emergency blanket in there if you dont have heat..
a bit noisy though.
wood stoves are awesome i was never cold growing up in a cinderblock house with no insulation we always had roasts cooking on it, couple candles and
a car battery with cheap low power car radio hooked up .. stock up on books and cards..
in the woods power goes out alot ...
we had a brand new fireplace, but wood stove heats better, especially if you have
a cold air intake...
because especially with fireplace, heat goes up chimney, but
GOTTA SUCK IN AIR FROM SOMEWHERE,, COLD AIR, and
ALOT OF AIR gets sucked up a fireplace,,
so EVERY CRACK in windows and doors will feel like a cold breeze,
ALL THROUGH THE HOUSE ,,
so if possible open a window close to fireplace, wont get rest of house as cold from all the leaks sucking cold air,,,, you can feel just how much
air comes in when your front door is almost closed.. it pushes door open about a foot THAT is alot of cold air freezing rest of your house .... the
air MUST COME FROM SOMEWHERE to feed the fire
a cold air intake stops that ..
for a fireplace maybe use a flexible METAL dryer vent pipe, duck taped to window,
pointed right at bottom corner of fireplace might do it.. SEASONAL
keeps rest of house MUCH WARMER
