Suggest he or she keep a pot of water on top of the stove... makes a pretty good humidifier if the building is tight enough to retain it. The only place I've lived with only a woodstove for heat was so drafty that a good winter wind would blow papers off the kitchen table. We also could have fattened up nicely on all the voles (like big, round mice with long tails) that we'd catch coming up through the floor from the crawlspace... if frying up voles didn't sound so repulsing!
