Over this summer we’ve done a ton of work to make WildSnow Field HQ (a ‘tiny house on wheels’ in central Colorado, near the town of Marble) better than ever. As an experiment, with the help of production assistant Joe we installed a 450 gallon water tank, half buried in the ground inside a temporary insulated enclosure. Works fine in summer of course, but will it freeze? Stay tuned. The land was choked with overgrown unhealthly forest when we bought it, and after a brutal amount of “defensible space” work it’s looking good thanks to lots of help from friends. Lisa even planted those apple trees she was blogging about a while ago!
Other improvements include fire resistant cushions on a bench near the wood stove, and some work on the solar system so we have more lighting options. The place is totally ready for snow so now we hope our ski burning (to be honest, our prayers) bring a good safe winter for all!
