What may seem like a superfluous newfangled gizmo is now a valued piece of equipment. I highly recommend it to anyone with a tall ceiling in a cold climate! I would be a sorry sap without it! Turns out, Californian architects give little (i.e. zero) advice for maintaining comfort and sanity while heating your Kleinhaus. This little Canadienne bugger sits atop the propane heater and, augmented with a small electric loft fan, keeps the warmth spread somewhat evenly. And it truly is silent. Now, I don’t need any more reasons to love my childhood-fantasy loft, but this makes “downstairs” inhabitable. Otherwise, I guesstimate there’d be a twenty degree differential – ugh. Thank you, Canada!
