  2. I find it funny going back to these olders vids and reading comments about
    how the roof wouldn’t last and it survived one of the worst winters in 30

  11. I cut a piece to fit then held it in place and marked it with a pencil,
    eyeing it up. Worked nicely, I think.

  12. i think he was actually after the tree shade during the summer when it was
    first moved there. also winds can get up there. he possibly could tow it
    though with his truck coz the meadow is flat. I’ve seen quadbikes tow some
    massive weights on the flat.

  13. Troy, sad to say, but without supplemental heat on your porch, there won’t
    be much, if anything you can grow during winter months. Much further south
    than you are. When I was growing plants yr round in my greenhouse, had to
    heat at night in winter. And during cloudy days when highs around freezing.
    Used a vented kerosene heater. Cost as much to heat as my home. Had to quit
    when fuel prices soared in early 1980’s. Lost all the plants that I
    couldn’t give away before tempts in the teens arrived.

  14. 45 minutes away, yes. Not worth the time to drive.

  17. I am totally addicted to watching ‘troy’s world’! Good, bad, or ugly we get
    to see it unfold. I cant wait for each new video.

  18. Love yr vid. Can’t wait for the new one each day.

  19. Thank you for the concern. The windows on both sides of the bedroom push
    out and you can pop out of the RV. Also the back bathroom window has a fast
    release to pop it out.

  20. Yes Troy’ “Chooks” mean chickens…. we have taught u that already, now ur
    punishment is to write out 100 lines on the chalkboard, “I must remember
    what chooks are, them damn aussies” starting from now!!!

  21. Barrel stove will require a much larger space than what Troy has now to use
    it, even with a 35 gal drum. Haven’t looked up the specs. But, suspect the
    space needed, at minimum would be twice, as large, if not more, than his
    current heat shed. He still has the option of building a larger shed,
    against the rear of the RV & existing shed to contain the barrel stove.
    Using the bathroom window and back access panel to transfer heat into the
    RV. Enter through doorway between existing shed & new one.

  22. Coming along nicely

  23. So much for moving out of your dark camper. I would have pulled the RV into
    the middle of meadow so it gets total sun, and I would have just enclosed
    the stove part.

  24. it ain’t bad the old fibreglass. got a bit of brittle stuff myself on the
    verandah but it hasn’t broke yet. used to put new ones on pergolas and
    verandahs when i worked in building. if you stand on them you go straight
    thru. more expensive than plastic but they dissipate the light properly.
    whereas plastic besides a steel sheet is full brightness, then complete
