    Gorgeous Jotul stoves and nice looking timber-frame house. You must have a dog because I see the dog bed and water bowl. I imagine that your dog sleeps right in front of that stove!

    Finally get to join the club. Moved into a 1780s farmhouse about 2 years ago and couldn't feel content until we had heat independent of electricity. Overhauled a Jotul Firelight 12 given by a former neighbor and installed a Duravent chimney on the living room wall.

    Ha! I don't usually have this much. I had a bit left over from last load in 2015, it's buried under 1 end of THE pile. The smaller pile is white maple, a huge blowdons. I finally finished hacking it to length today. I'm undecided when I'll split it.

    The wood is in a field, 100' from the house. No shade, plenty of air, on pallets.

    I bring it in by the 4x4 chemical tote cage with the tractor. Once things get bumping, that's about a week at a time. I set it in my garage, then use a jack to roll it into the room where my wood fired hot air furnace is. Lots of heat and moving air from a ceiling fan speeds up drying substantially.

    I've streamlined by not stacking any more than the walls of the pile. Wood is a lot of work, but it cheap if you eliminate the labor, less than 500 a year.

    Swapped to a brand new chain today, and first cut of 36" chunk....... #@$%!!! 20171202_133750.jpg

    +1 on the chemical tote cage, with a plastic pallet bottom. If you have the means to move them, it's awesome. About half a cord each. Have a dozen filled and counting.

    9B024E0E-0F43-4ABD-A469-C8E9EB1B34D7.jpeg This snowstorm is not exactly snowmegedon but it is a great excuse to fire up the stove (pellet at the cabin) and curl up with the dog (or cat)!

    Let’s see some pics!!

    Hit the local pheasant stocking site to look for survivors that needed killing, dried off in front of the fire place.

    Yes a Griff. First snow of the year here as well and he made the most of it. Do you hunt with the wirehair?
