    I see an addiction there.

    What are you going to do with your spare time for the next 5 years until it needs restocking?

    Will it be fit for burning in a decade? There is a lot of potential income sitting around there 🙂

    We try to rotate our usage from pile to pile. I hope it’ll still be usable. What’s the worst that can happen if it gets too dry?

    I used to, then I built a hydraulic log splitter. I cant imagine how I did it all before.

    I suspect that your pusher is very much missing a trick by selling to you at low price – but good for you for getting it. I’m still jealous 🙁

    Ton, it probably works out to a couple of days a month chopping. I love working outdoors. It’s great for the soul, amd a bonus to have something to show for it.

    When mankind has destroyed itself in a nuclear holocaust, the remaining cockroaches will find that woodpile and gape* in awe.

    * or whatever cockroaches do when gobsmacked.

    You need to be careful as you could get rot set in in the middle of the piles as they are quite wide.
    Or possibly if they get too dry it wouldn’t need much to ignite them and they are very big and quite close together….

    …. my wood supply sufficient to last a decade.

    Then my pusher (saw mill) called to say they had a surplus I could have at a good price. So I had to build an extension on my extension.

    While the scrapyard still has a pile of corrugated tin at £2 a sheet it would be foolish not to. Plus I think it’s worthy of space in the Turbine Hall at the Tate.

    Bear, I stacked some newly windblown Beech among other wood inside this building, it very quicky grew a mould which worried me, prompting the the build of my new outdoor shed. Since it’s been stored outside the growth of the fungus almost immediatly stopped. I’ve deliberatly stacked the middles of the piles a litle more loosely. I built the shed at the windiest spot to promote air flow.

    There nothing so comforting as knowing your stash of wood, water, baked beans, haribo and homemade zider will see you through the next Labour Government 😉

    more of a problem with wood chip stores, damp chip can start composting, generating heat and then spontaneously combusting!

    Looks like the makings of a potentially successful business to me, using the store to season the logs prior to sale..

    Cranberry, it’s more of a self help central heating solution.

    I enjoy the process to much creatively to ever see it as a commercial enterprise. I always enjoy seeing how others store their firewood.

    Fantastic work, mcmoonter.

    Just got in from splitting some logs – very cathartic hobby after getting back from work.
    My modest store is growing nicely.

    Satisfying and simple.

    My wife says there are 3 trees in our back garden you can help yourself to. The squirrels might not be so pleased though.
