Here is a load I brought home yesterday. I've been cutting tops 2-4 times a week off of some logged property now for about a month and have quite a bit of wood going into next year but I need to start splitting and stacking so I have room to get more wood.

I'm really considering getting rid of my propane stove and purchasing a wood stove for our main level.

Getting wood is no issue at all. I'm still young and full of energy and my 10 year old is a great helper. I live probably 5 minutes or less to allowed cutting areas and many people sell firewood around here.

The propane is an ok heat source but can take two or more weeks to get delivered. I always have to monitor the tank level. We have to pay a yearly tank rental from the company (not allowed to simply purchase the tank for some reason). We have no thermostat on the propane stove and cannot leave the thing running all night.

My primary source of heat is oil. It's pretty expensive so I really think the wood heat will cut down on this cost.

Do you think its a good idea to ditch my propane stove and get the wood stove? It's a pretty hard decision. I never really looked at the full price (stove and installation cost) I'm guessing it won't be more then 4k.

Yeah that's true. I'll probably go to a few places and get some quotes and go from there

Presumably there is a switch to turn the propane stove on/off. Based on that, it would be pretty easy to wire in a mechanical thermostat to control the stove. All you need is some 2 conductor cable from the existing switch to the new mechanical thermostat and wire it in parallel so you can still turn it on/off or let the tstat take care of it. In 20 years will you still enjoy getting firewood, maintaining the chimney, storing firewood, etc? Also,from having propane delivered, you should be able to set up to having regular deliveries, i.e. quarterly, or monthly rather than calling for service.

Firewood shed. Why just build something when you can overbuild it?

It'll look better after I finish painting the trim to match the house.

Care to build one at my house too? I might need it a little bigger than that though.

Painted and loaded. After moving all that heavy firewood, I concluded it's not as "overbuilt" as I thought. In fact I found myself thinking "maybe I should have used 1" plywood for the the floor instead of just 3/4" inch..."





It's filled with 228 cubic feet of stacked wood - nearly two full cords. At the rate I use firewood - this may last ten years.

Well, it'll certainly be well-seasoned by then...

Looks awesome .

I wouldn't worry too much about it , one of my woodsheds is a rickety old thing with a 1/2" plywood floor on 2x6 joists that holds about the same amount of wood as yours , it's 18 years old this year

What do you think about the fiskars splitting axe? I have been thinking about getting one but the $50+ price tag is steep to buy it on a guess
