Making a Fire outside:
There are several ways to makea fire outside, we have a fire basket, small patio heater and fire ton.
For all use dry wood, and nothing but natural products. For your own safety use the fire ton only with the gas burner.
Let everything burn out and put everything under the roof again before you leave.
Use only seasoned wood (you can buy any in the construction market).
The house is visited by several visitors, you are free to use what's there. Something run out? It would be nice if you complete it again or just let us know.
As mentioned it is an old house in a nature reserve with too old pipes that lead to a septic tank, so we are not connected to the sewer. So no chemical business in the toilet and take into account what is washed away in the kitchen.
