Here is another craigslist ad for a marine stove. One of my goals with the Tiny House Meets conversation is to figure out the best place to put all the great craigslist ads without them being posts. Right now I am leaning towards either creating a specific page or only highlighting them on the Tiny House Facebook page. I feel they are important as they let you know what is out there but I don’t have time to make posts out of each and every one of them.
This one is important though, as Olivia is trying to raise funds as quickly as possible so that they can do a medical treatment for her grandfather. Plus it is a real bargain at $875 and I think someone in the Tiny House community may find good use for it. Here it is in Olivia’s words and you can view the craigslist ad here.

When we built our Little House, we intended on using it primarily in the summer, so we didn’t go to the expense of installing a central air system, as we figured we could use a window air unit and a wood-burning stove in the winter – along with space heaters. I did want a beautiful rock fireplace, but given we ended up living in The Little House full time, I’m glad we went for efficiency, rather than beauty.
For four years of using The Little House as a weekend retreat and mainly over the Christmas and New Year’s holidays, we never used the wood-burning stove. Even during the first year we lived here full time, we only used a space heater, as the place is so well insulated, it used relatively little energy. As well, having just moved and the transferring of jobs didn’t allow my husband the time to cut wood.
