I am not interested personally but I am sure there are others who are so you might suggest how much you are asking for the unit.

I am guessing the next project is "off the grid" accommodation as well?

If you want to part with the wood stove, I'd be interested

If the wood stove gets parted out it will be going into my next project, lol. If you are interested in a neat combo of flat deck trailer and camper I can sell you the set up, comes with a cool wood stove ;)

Still waiting to hear what you are thinking of for the next project.

Try to figure out what a woman is thinking next is very dangerous lol
Haven't met Rowdy yet but she appears to be as capable as any guy I have met. If being female makes her somehow treacherous then I "for sure" want to be her friend :).

Just curious really. I am thinking she has something larger in mind but maybe not.

Why thank you sir! I'm currently weighing my options but if I can secure a spot out in Revy for a few years I'll build an off the grid tiny home on a flat deck. I have a design sketched out and know I can do the shell for $1,000 complete with siding, windows and roofing thanks to a friend. I know I can finish it fairly inexpensively on the inside, doesn't need to be fancy, just functional.

Second project will be in a few years, but selling my place and buying land. I want a smaller house and bigger shop, lol. I have a 1256sq foot house now (above grade) and realistically would be happy with 700-900sq ft. I have a few designs in mind for this as well too and keep going back and forth between two options:
A - Shouse. Living quarters above a shop. Downside being stairs for when I'm older or injured. Have a solid set of plans for this, which I keep going back to.
B - Small house with attached or detached larger shop. Downside with a small home and big shop having them attached would just look weird. If it's detached, you have two separate spaces to heat. I'd prefer one building.

Just things that are mulling around in my noggin.

Lots of options on both fronts. A Tiny house would be cool for the Revy area. One of my"must haves" is an indoor toilet. My fifth wheel trailer is habitable down to about minus 20 but at lower temps condensation can be an issue.

I have a Lugable Loo that I put inside when I need to use it. Indoor plumbing at it's finest! haha I haven't had to use my trailer below -15 yet so perhaps that's why I haven't had any condensation issues, or maybe the wood heat helps alleviate condensation!?

Lugable loo works :)

Condensation becomes more noticeable at lower temps as the walls are cooler so collect condensation where there isn't good air flow - between the mattress and the wall for example. Lots of heat and air circulation help but if you cook or have lots of people in a small area, it becomes more of a challenge

A heat recovery ventilator moves stale air and moisture out and replaces it with fresh drier air from outside.

So just you, minimal cooking and above -15 in your camper it is not noticeable. Colder weather, more people and cooking could be an issue.

The Wood stove helps as it is a dry heat. If you use the propane stove, there is lots of moisture produced as a byproduct.
