    Today:
    The last of 12/13 wood into the wood box.

    Will put 2 rows of the 6 month seasoned wood in the shed, should get good air circulation & be out of the rain.
    This fall I'll finish filling the center section for my 15/16 wood supply.

    Ground froze in the AM , so I got a start filling the 15/16 center section.
    Ground thawing in the afternoon, so I'll wait for frozen or drier conditions.

    Center section empty, holds roughly 6.5 cords

    Using the stacks the earth quake knocked over:

    Having that multi-bay set-up continues to make me want to build one.

    Except your on the piedmount and I'm up in the ranges - limited flat land and a few:) degrees warmer here .

    Ideally it would be enough to hold 3bays 2 cords each elevated -to keep termites out and my shoulder season stacks in the woods

    With the wind you get there, wood might even dry in the house. :)

    Some of the splits are frozen in the stacks now.
    Some warm days turned the snow to ice & now I have to chip the stack apart.
    Won't fall over any more for a few weeks anyway ;)

    20°s last night, will move a few more loads today until the ground starts to thaw.

    Dave, does this mean you are out of seasoned '12-13 wood? I'd imagine you are still burning?

    Small fire every other night is all I've needed to keep my house at around 70* Been in the 40s the last few days!

    I have wood ready for next winter and everything else is still in logs. Have around 15 cords in logs ready to get cut when I get around to it. None for me though, already all sold even before the wood hit the ground:eek:

    I ended up with 4 pallets of "good stuff" left over. I'm up over 10 cords since may last year install. 25 gallons of oil since sept 29. I'm picking thru the pallets and grabbing the couple full pallets of hemlock slabs that are in there. Wood's all good from here on out. Ash, Maple, and in '14-15 5 cord of 3 year old red oak.

    I've been stacking up 10 foot logs. Probably got 4 cords to work thru. Pretty soon my processing area's gonna turn to mush. I'll have to take a few weeks off. I do like the look of that shed you have. Not enough to stack and restack though.

    Good Dave.

    I figured we'd burn about 2 1/2 cord this winter so that is what I put in the barn. Got the last of that in the wood rack that is on the porch now. Might have to go to the stacks for some more if it doesn't warm up soon.

    Split some wood yesterday and the wood that is on the ground is frozen pretty solid. Took some heavy hitting with the sledge to break it loose. Only a very few traces of snow left now. Rain/snow predicted for tomorrow.

    Have about 1/3 cord in the basement.
    The 13/14 wood is good to go if needed. Back side row is 2 years + in the shed.
    14 hour of sun now, when the wood is gone might just let the NG furnace get some run time.

    Today's pictures: 1/5 full.
    the back row is 15' 9" X 17" splits X 7' high.
