Bringin' up da Wood
« on: September 29, 2018, 01:58:57 PM »
Since it just might get cold during October, I decided to bring up a few loads of firewood and stack it on the back porch.


 
The first load was about half split slabs for starter wood.


 
The next two loads were splits and rounds.  This is 2'H X 10'L so it should be enough to last well into December.  Gotta be ready 'cause sometime the temps can drop down close to freezing.  :o  Burrrrrr !!!

That much wood would only make two good burns in my Garn. I loaded half that much tonight will put the other half in Sunday night. Were in the forty's and raining so some heat is good.

I think Magicman has a pasture full of piles of firewood and two full woodsheds he hasn't pictured. ;D :D

I got firewood.



My woodshed.  Two rows in the foreground about 12' long and two more in the background also about 12' long.  All four rows are close to 6' high.  I should burn about half of this during this Winter.



This is what I split this past Summer that is shown in the foreground of the picture above.

Wood pile(s) ;D





I've added another 1-1/2 cord (two tiers) in the basement wood room since that photo, so 4-1/2 cord in there and 3-1/2 out in the wood racks.

Nice rolling wood fire. ;D



It's 80 degrees in the house now. Nice and toasty. ;)

Our fire's been burning for a little more than a month now. Mid- 20s and snow last night.
I shouldn't have to post a pic; you all can imagine how beautiful our fire is in this weather..... Still not as cold here as where some of our FF Brethren (and "Sistren") are (check out a couple of Willard's latest posts).

   I bought one of these, or very similar to it, several years ago and we find it is great to haul firewood from the utility room to the den where the big wood heater is located. I bought mine at TSC. I throw wood through a coal chute door into a raised wood box. This saves me lots of trips to move it once inside the house.

I brought up two more trailer loads of wood today, mainly because it was not raining nor was the yard wet so no tracks.  Looks like we just might have temps into the 40's all of next week.  :o

Magic - our temps are in the forties as well.
On the other side of the zero that is . . . .  :D  :D  :D


 
Now this, my friend, is how you 'bring up da wood'.
Goose, I'll bring you a load - think the border patrol will mind?

I'm thankful I stored 8 cord. I have been burning a wheel barrow load of wood a day and it is January cold here at 0F this morning. That is some cold for November weather. ;D :D Thank goodness for 6" of insulation in the walls and 30"+ in the attic. :)

Pre-commercial thinning pays off. :)

Thanksgiving here to day and the temp is 10F. I am thankful that I put up more wood than I thought I would need back in June. Started the woodstove early (end of October) because the boiler split open and we needed heat. Been burning ever since. (Usually it is mid-November.) Thought I would have an excess at the end of the season this year, but I might have to cut some more come March. I have a load of logs dried and ready. Coldest November I can ever recall, a foot of snow last week, and I am trying to get down to the mill to finish that project. Gonna try to get a few hours in this morning before we head over to the party at my Daughters. Wish it would warm up. This was my pile before I filled it up in the middle.
Happy Thanksgiving to all.



 
I ain't the woodcutter, but I can cut wood 'til the woodcutter gets here.

I am thankful that 8 cords of wood would last me 8 years and a wheel barrow full would last a week.  It is 40 this morning with a forecast high of 63.  I am also thankful for that.   :)


 
I noticed yesterday evening that my Red Oak tree leaves are just beginning to change colors.


 
And the ornamental Maple is in full glory.  

Happy Thanksgiving to all.  :)

I put .5 cord of wet oak on my porch this spring. It's dry enough, if not ideal. I've been slowly adding more almost every day, and now have ~1 cord almost ready to go, as well as kindling. I've been pulling off the sunnier stacks, and it should be ready by the time the original is burned.

All my wood is on scattered piles in the back yard. All is exposed, but some don't get sufficient sun, so they stay kinda wet. I think it's about 6 cord total that's already split/stacked. I have another cord that needs to go on pallets, 2 cord that's still in rounds on the ground(some I'd guess are ~1,000# each), and probably another 2-3 cord still attached to the tree. at which point I'll consider the job mostly done.

So much work... Every piece is a puzzle figuring out how it wants to come apart. I have some I simply quit on, and they'll be split using a chainsaw. It takes me the better part of an hour to break one of the big rounds down.

I haven't run central heat yet. I have the thermostat set to 50(56 is my preferred setting) as an emergency backup, and have been solely burning wood. So far, so good. I imagine the heat will come on in the next month or so. Can't keep a fire going while I'm out.
