There’s more than one way to skin a cat — 10 Comments

  1. I wish my husband was more inclined to be more self-sufficient. I found an artical on heating and cooking with methane gas, blue barrels and trator inner tubes. He just looks at me and shakes his head. You are all right Will.

  2. Wayne,

    Before Will ever cut the top off the water heater, he told Eric about the necessity of adding a pressure relief valve. YES, any enclosed water heater must have one!


  3. I love this! I am going to have my husband read this one and get started on one for us. We are a large family and 5-6 showers a day is getting expensive. Thank You for all your helpful projects.

  4. If a top is ever welded on the tank, please make sure he adds a temperature and pressure relief valve or that thing will be a time bomb.

  5. I love the stories you share of homesteaders sharing their skills to help one another. Everyone knows so much, but if a person doesn’t know everything – well, that’s ok, because someone in the community does and is willing to help. I hope that our future home (we are slowly transitioning) has as many wonderful people around it as you have found. We are certainly planning to do our part!
