I’ve spent today and part of yesterday adding something safer on the floor in the living space of the habitation.
Well, after some careful examination, it’s become abundantly clear that the previous owner had indeed rewired the heat control circuitry in the furnace.
Could I set it right? I could, sure. Do I have all of the needed elements/parts to? No, I’d have to source, order, await delivery, etc.
How long would it take? A few months.
I simply haven’t the time we’d need.
I suppose that means rebuilding is out of the question. Which leaves us with obtaining a replacement. So, I’ll be shopping around as our limited time permits to source a replacement and we’ll install it.
I feel somewhat discouraged by the fact it’ll be new, installed, then removed or disposed in a year or two.
I wonder if I could make do over the winter with a reasonable supply of firewood for the wood stove and kerosene for the portable kerosene heaters.
