  1. Last night I listened to part one of the podcast on heating a tiny home. I’m curious as to why people are so unhappy with the Dickinson propane heaters. I’m remodeling a 30-foot Airstream and have read a lot about Airstream heating options and found that people in that world like the Dickinson heaters. One thing I had to do a double take on was a heater’s capability to heat square footage vs. cubic feet. When I realized a 30-foot Airstream has around 1850 CUBIC feet to heat (square footage is 230 ft2), it changed the way I compared heaters. Anyway, just a thought.

    Can’t wait to listen to all of the shows! Thanks for this resource!

  2. When you were experimenting with the radiant floor heating, did you happen to try putting down a really dense rug? Something you could really dig your toes into would definitely increase the thermal mass which might improve the situation… let me know 🙂

  3. Towards the end of episode 13 Macy said she would post a website or some place to check out the last heater that was talked about. Perhaps I overlooked it. Can you send me a link if that is not the case. I am really loving your podcast and I am very glad I stumbled across it. I am taking notes but I bet as I get closer to becoming very serious I will probably go through them all again.
