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.

Although I will have 8 cords, it will probably last 2 years and then some. ;D

Goose, what Magic man has stacked there is smaller than your kindling pile.

Besides he cannot cut wood down there during the summer because the skeeters are the size of small planes :D

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).
