Wood Heat Thread ~ post pics

I was filling the woodshed today and thought it would be fun to see if anybody else enjoys wood heat and all that goes along with it like I do .

This is my solution to local zoning that wouldn't allow me to build a woodshed here on the very edge of my property line

Scaffolding Woodshed

They're like $2.75 a log, but if you go to their website, you can print off coupons. I'll buy like 3 boxes and that will last a winter. Of course I only burn one every few days just to enjoy the flames dancing in the fireplace.

Very nice oz, my wife and I plan on wood heat when we build. It'll be a pain to try and out-do your 7 cords, but I'll do what I must.

We have a wood stove in our house as well as a fire place. The dam stove will make you sweat while there's 6ft of snow outside

We burn about 2 cords a year in our house too , that wood storage area is in a back spot on my property , and I have a small woodshed by the house that I move about 2 cords into each year .

I can imagine it would be a terrible job with a bad back

Yea the stove is in the smaller of the two living rooms too. Question, do you have to put a pot of water on the stove sometimes to help with the humidity? Sometimes, the air gets so dry its like you cant breathe, but the water helps a lot. May be ancient technique but thats what my grandfather did

Starting to see the temps dip a little...

Last year I bought some kiln-dried hardwood that burnt better then anything I've ever used. Little more expensive but I think the heat output and convenience factor helps. I have a Jotul Firelight.

Has anyone tried the biobricks?
