Need Advice, sounds like

I've got an old Fisher 'Mama Bear' wood stove in my workshop/apartment. What should I be doing for off-season creosote maintenance? And what situation do I need the ladder up at all times for--what would I do if I got up there and there's a fire??
There's a level of facility that everyone needs to accomplish, and from there
it's a matter of deciding for yourself how important ultra-facility is to your
expression. ... I found, like Joseph Campbell said, if you just follow whatever
gives you a little joy or excitement or awe, then you're on the right track.

What you do is cap it, choke off the draft. With draft it will melt the pipe and set the roof/attic on fire.
Everything is interesting... look closer.

That's my experience as well. But this one seems to not have a large door under the peak at either end.

Turns out it was a boathouse and is now used as a tavern. The walls are louvered, so a breeze flows through. I don't know if it was that way for the boats to dry out, or if they did that for the tavern.

No wonder Finland is a third world shithole they can't even build a barn right.
And they're mean, sitting on their pets.

I'd guess the louvered walls was to dry boats.

Just the thought of taking the dock in and out every year would be enough to make me say, "sorry, we're not having a dock." I used to think a year was a long time in between odious tasks; now, not so much.
