No storage, but on my list. We have what's come to be called a "barndominium". Just enough house on the end of the generous shop. I really don't want to give up the floor space in either the shop or house. In my view if I add storage, it'll be meaningful (1000 gallon) and that will take another fairly big tank for expansion adding up to a good bit of floor space even if I put the 1000g tank in a vertical position. Then there's the price of used LP tanks, it wasn't too long ago that we'd pick them up easily and make smokers out of them 😆 not anymore!
Have you ever heard of American Solartechnic? It's a Mainer company that offers products for solar and wood hydronic heating. The company offers a pretty interesting solution to thermal storage.

Frame is painted. Began applying wood to the top. The end is near. Excited to cut my first cord on it.

I like it.  Nice Solid build.  How do you like the Kubota loader?  Ive got an old JD 1030 and its about to get the boot.  Ive being looking at the different Kubotas.  Keep us posted to how the table works out.

The loader works fine. My only complaint with the M7060 is hydraulic flow. I have the 8 speed, which comes with a lower hydraulic flow rate. The 12 speed version has higher gpm (can't recall the exact numbers, but easily obtained online). The loader can be slow at times. I've used a neighbor's New Holland. Generally I don't like the tractor, but the hydraulics are better than mine. The loader itself if rugged enough and mounts/dismounts easily.
Firewood table is done. Not used it yet, but should see a scratch or two before the week is out.

Last step was 5/4" PT boards for the off-bearing table and 2X4s for the cutting table. All mating surfaces and end-grain got a heavy dose of used motor oil. First stem is an ugly "pasture spruce". Table is designed for 16" and 24" cuts. Wasn't able to cut anything yet with family visiting over the holiday weekend. Should see some action this week.

Thanks, and yes, very lucky to have stumbled upon this drug house being sold by the Federal Marshall 25yrs ago. It's been a non-stop, but fun project ever since.

well with family visiting, you would of had some helpers.   :)  are the top boards considered sacrificial?  will have to replace occasionally in your plan?  may depend on who is running the saw.

Yes. Top two layers of 2X4's are fastened with common deck screws. I will cut the top 2X4 to match the firewood length as needed. I hope I'd need to work hard to hit any metal with the saw, but ya never know....

with it setting by your wood pile, will the splitter have a spot there also?  I see a red chunk of iron in the back ground, but does not look like a splitter.

Loader/trailer on one side and splitter/firewood pile on the other side. Haven't put all the pieces together, but will get a pic or two when I do. The red thing is my Wallenstein tractor winch.

Maiden voyage of the firewood table and new-to-me All-Wood splitter. Did about 1.5 cords with the wife. Hot day. Us northerners don't do well with the 80's. Overall worked well. Biggest complaint is the splitter. For a 24" stroke, opening was exactly 24". No room for variation in the 24" pieces I cut. So I cut back the wedge point to give about 3/4" extra room. Much better, but still a PITA on those occasional 25" pieces. May cut back the wedge point some more or cut off the 6 tangs on the push plate and weld a bunch of small beads - a little less standout distance from the plate.

Thanks, Mike. Although wife still warns me "don't make our yard look like a junk yard!" Thankfully, theft is not much of a problem in our area. At least big stuff. Still have drug-induced break-ins, occasional bank or convenience store stick-up, and theft of hand-tools.

I broke mine in early.  Our maternity pictures were literally in a junk yard.  Came out really good too actually. Her idea.
