I have a question about heating. Would a kerosun heater be safe as long as you have plenty of ventilation?
Hi, I live in the portland,oregon area. I would like to know if a single shelter can be purchased?  If so, how much would the 30′ diameter dome cost?  You have a very informative web site.  Thank you and I hope to hear from you.

You can heat our domes with kerosene but we are not experts in the use of heaters, so I would carefully follow the instructions given with the heater. It is best if you can get a vented heater so that combustibles are expelled from your dome. When a fuel is burn it produces water vapor which will add to the dampness of your space; and carbon dioxide which can suffocate you if you were in an airtight room. The other reason is the fumes which the heater produces can smell and if burnt incompletely produce carbon monoxide (this not the carbon dioxide we mention above but more dangerous and can kill you. Now there are heaters which claim to be safe with out being vented so be smart and read and follow their directions.
