And then there were four…
My stashes of cut logs are standing on top of the Snowdrops which are already coming up. So in a race against Spring we are going to build a last Holz Hausen.
I’m leaving my brother in charge of splitting while I have an errand to run. What’s the worst that could happen.

JD – I don’t speak German, but every visitor we have says the same thing. When I google Holz Haus, I just find wooden houses, when I googlle Holz Hausen I find woodpiles.
Contrary to popular belief I do burn the wood. I will probably be a few years before I get around to it, but it will all get used at some point. I’ve all but emptied an old woodshed an am about to start using another.
I have a couple of good wood sources, while they are forthcoming I will keep chopping and splitting. It might amount to a couple of days a month. It’s time I have between jobs, I love working outdoors, it’s rewarding on many levels.Posted 4 years agostumpy01Member

<foreign language pedant alert>
struggling to remember my O Level German from 1980 but isn’t “Hausen” the plural of “Haus” ?
so another one would be “another Holz Haus” ?
/pedant mode thing…..
German plural of house if Häuser…

Saw my first snow drops today and thought of you, how weird then that you mentioned them.
Ours are showing a bit of green, no flower heads as yet.
It’s a good deal colder up here, we are at 600 feet, so they usually flower a bit later. There are loads of green shoots sprouting.Posted 4 years ago
Saw my first flowering Snowdrops today about 20miles along the road from MM’s.
I was over Lacock last Sunday, walking around the Abbey grounds, and there were quite a few already out on flower, but it’s been fairly mild down here.Posted 4 years ago
Oh, and if anyone’s prepared for the zombie Apocolypse, it’s McM. At the first signs, I’m heading North… 😀samuriMember
I like. Do you find not having a roof over them slows their drying at all?
Some of the reading I’ve been doing suggests it makes little difference.
We’re just reaching the end of the wood we stacked around June. It’s quite dry, cracks in the logs, sound hollow when banged. It burns really well and for a long time.Posted 4 years ago
