I want you guys to help me get my house a little more bad weather/SHTF/off grid/pick your poison ready. It's 8 years old and we've been in it for 7 years. It's all electric. I've been contemplating alternative heat sources not only to help cut costs, but for obvious reasons. I don't really have a good spot to put a pellet stove so I've been thinking about outside heat. Sure it's a pain in the ass to go out in the cold and keep a fire going, but I don't mind. I've got a friend that sells and installs outside water/wood stoves. I've also thought about maybe adding propane just for emergencies. Heat is the most important to me at the moment.
