      It could be worse. I could not take that cold so I'm better of here.

        Hershell, I heat my GH with an outdoor woodboiler. The high for today was 3 degrees and my GH never went below 43

          We don't have it that cold here, fortunately only 29 night before last.

            Do you find that the wood is fine over night with out someone maintain it? Wouldn't natural gas or propane be less hands on and more cost effective?

              The heater only requires wood replaced in the morning and at night. It heats the water and it is exchanged with a large tank inside the dome. The tank is about 4' tall and 10' long and stays around 130 degrees. Danny works from home so he monsters it as needed. He grows vegetables in the dome but newly rooted fig cuttings are taking over.

                  Sure Scott. Danny was going to do a dome build photo album. This would be a good time for him to do it. Most everything that can be is home maid so don't expect much.

                    I'm all about home made!!! I'm collecting ideas for when I make the move from suburbia and have room to stretch my wings.

                      Has been warmer than normal here, sending all of our cold weather up north and back east. Should hit 70 at least again today
