may have to try a long term multiple tarp teepee for the winter. Basically a few, probably 4 tarps set up in trapper lean to fashion. Gonna try to rig up wood stove or purchase a collapsible one my critter can haul. A 8x10 is quite ideal for room and storage when set up with good pitch too for throwing rain and snow. Anyone had much experience with tipis or heated shelters?
We sell all kinds of other stuff in our Etsy store!

Rolling the tarp to a pole can help with heat retention. If you have a big enough roof tarp you can have a center poll, not really a teepee, rolled into the tarp. The design if often use in agricultural barn curtains, like for cows, but with massive vinyl.

no personal experience with them, I've read the Europeans used the term "hothouse" so i imagine you'll be plenty warm.

the only thing I've ever done was drape my tarp over my tent to hold in heat and lit a few candles. only bad thing about that setup is moisture builds up.

i assume you'll want to leave a small hole in the roof and a section of the floor open for the fire.
