Have not decided on heat for the RV/Cabin. There is nothing installed for heating yet. Window AC unit for cooling. 4" thick solid logs gives it a damn good R-factor insulation which helps both. If I was living in there; it would get an outdoor Wood heat- indoor (underfloor?) radiator system but since it will be used as a rental till Im old
.... I suspect I will put in a gas wall heater or a fuax fire place gas heater.
Reason I say till Im old
........ this whole layout is a 30+ years plan. 30+?yrs from now I switch out of the house and into the cabin/RV. This is assuming Im still unfortunately single, thus living as a dirty old man. Odds point that way. I would then trade room/board and/or inheriting the whole property upon my demise, to nursing/medical student with a small family living in the house in exchange for being my care provider.
After loosing everything in this last economic crunch thus living homeless last three years..... I know finances will never build up enough for any other long term care solution for myself except a Kevorkian
plan which sits as a realistic plan B.
