We Are Alive! September 29th, 2022 Cutting The Canvas
In order to install our stove, we have to get the knife out and cut a hole in our beautiful canvas tent!
The tent with no hole in it. We decide where the hole will go and use the flashing bolt holes to determine where to poke the first holes.
The first slice.
As we poke the holes, we insert the bolts. Looks pretty funny from the outside.
We put the flashing on and secure it tightly with the bolts. It's water-tight!
It's all lined up nicely.
It's time to cut!
We cut a plus shape to begin with.
Then we cut the rest out.
It's almost out!
We have a special triple walled pipe that goes through the flashing so it won't melt or burn the canvas.
Let's put the rest of the pipe on.
Let's test out the wood stove!
We have a fire mat and a baby gate around the stove, to keep little fingers away. It's all loaded up with wood, now we just have to light the fire.
After a few failed attempts, I get the fire lit and we can feel the heat radiating off the wood stove. We're going to have a nice warm tent this year!
Bless the Most High!
