We work a remote trap line in the far north west corner of BC Canada. For long periods of the year it is just the two of us, 2 dogs, a cat and two chickens. This is how we live.

Heating Crawl Space with Wood Stove Heat from upstairs.
Keeping the crawl space (where we keep the potatoes, carrots, cabbages, Onions, Canned Moose meat etc etc etc....) plus have the water pump and bladder from freezing in - 17 C and below... was always a real stress for us. Bryan thought of this three years ago and it really helps. Down below on the floor of the crawl space he inserted a induct fan which is plugged into the electrical system. Every time the generator runs and the wood stove is hot that little fan pushes the warm air from around the stove down into the crawl space.
That fan part that Bryan fixed with Gorrila Glue last week is that inline duct fan. A new one is on our shopping list.
That the fresh air ducting into the Blaze King Wood stove.
The water pump is in the opposite corner of the crawl space from the ducting. Bryan said next time he would put the pump in a different place. But it is hard in a little cabin.
Vikki did some make shift drip catching buckets. There is only a drip every 10 minutes. If Bryan takes it all apart we might not have the correct parts to fix the problem and a store is 300 kms away. Also no plane is expected in here til mid Jan or Feb.
