Ryuu-chan sleeping in the kotatsu
From Wikipedia :
"A kotatsu (??) is a low, wooden table frame covered by a futon, or heavy blanket, upon which a table top sits. Underneath is a heat source, often built into the table itself.
There are two kinds of kotatsu in use today. The modern style of kotatsu consists of a table with an electric heater attached to the underside of the table.
The kotatsu is usually set on a thin futon, like a throw rug. A second futon, this one thicker, like a comforter, is placed over the kotatsu table, with the table top placed on top of that futon.
The electric heater attached to the underside of the table heats the space under the comforter, and anyone who happens to be snuggled under it.
The more traditional type is a table placed over a recessed floor. The pit is about 40 centimeters deep that is cut into the floor. A heater (charcoal or electric) is placed somewhere in the pit's floor, walls, or, as in the modern-style kotatsu, attached to the table-frame.
Generally, a blanket is draped over the frame under the table-top. A person then sits on the floor with their legs (or most of their body if napping) under the table with the blanket draped over the lower body.
Though this only heats up the lower body, it can keep one quite comfortable even in an unheated/underheated room.
Most Japanese housing is un- or under-insulated, and they rely primarily on space heating. Heat is expensive because of the lack of insulation, and the draftiness of housing. A kotatsu is a relatively inexpensive way to stay warm in the winter, as the futons trap the warm air.
The kotatsu was originally designed for people wearing Japanese style clothes, where the heat would enter through the bottom of the robes and exit around the neck, thus heating the entire body."

Cats love kotatsu !
Roof of the hut, insulated
My big insulation job keeps getting bigger. This was phase one: space blankets everywhere. I have a few spots here and there to plug up tomorrow with my remaining space blanket. I will leave the little triangles up at the apex above the door and back wall free, to work with ideas I have for the Bedouin roof covering.
By the time the hut is finished, the roof will be draped in a thick fabric from each eave to the top centre apex, Bedouin tent-style.
