Kevin: That is one of the coolest things I've ever seen!! I can't believe the extra touches. Do you sleep above the porch? Your old "rafting buddies" from back in the day would be envious.

I think the stoves from NSW would be ideal for this. If you get one you can cook on as well, you will find that you rarely use anything else. I'm enjoying another meal off the Little Cod tonight. You don't have to open up the hatches at all, like I would if I fired up the alcohol (or a propane) stove. No CO to worry about.

Tell Andrew I sent you when you start inquiring. He's a great guy. Used to live in Williamsburg (Brooklyn) if that means anything to you. He was there *before* it was trendy.

There is a full-length sleeping loft (20') accessed by a ladder from the living/dining area. I've been debating the style of window to build in the gable ends. (For now, the plywood sheathing is covering the entire gable.) I'd originally thought I'd do a gothic style, but I'm working on something else that should be pretty cool when it's finished.

Between the two sections of the loft are the closets and the water holding tanks. A lot of the things that work well on the boat are being incorporated into the design, too. There will be solar and possibly wind generation for the electric. Instead of an empty, boxy interior like in a more typical home, I'm building the furniture into the structure, very much like the salon in a boat.

You know, when I look back on those days, I realize that I haven't changed much at the core. Hmmm. Does that mean I've never grown up? I think of it as a good thing.

I'll be sure to let him know.
