That & the interior door from the basement leading into the kitchen. My daughter doesn't like the looks of & has very little room for a stove upstairs, plus less dust downstairs if there's a puff-back or whatever. Once they get the basement set up correctly it will work fine. It's basically the same size as my house with just one floor above to heat.
I'm going to try to convince Wayne to build that small airlock around the bulkhead entrance. That would solve multiple problems:
1. Give them a sealed area to dump coal bags(Blaschak of course
) & empty ash pans into a barrel
2. Seal the bulkhead from the cold outside air better
3. Take care of insulating the basement wall in that area.
I'm sending my daughter a link to this thread.
Thanks for all the ideas!.....Keep em coming!
