[ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iPlu9Wg-tmg"]Vogelzang barrel stove Complete!! - YouTube[/ame] The guy in that video suggested it. The kit itself is under $100. The barrel can be had for $50 or less. The needed pipe and parts would be significantly more. http://www.ebay.com/itm/Vogelzang-D...387?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item337c34e123 However, in regard to preps, heat in the winter (for colder climates) is vital. But it's pretty compact and portable. So whether for your current home or a BOL...this seems to be a nice heating package so long as you're handy with a reciprocating saw and a drill. What are your thoughts? Thanks! -Emt1581 Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
