    Question: how many pounds of pellets would equal a cord of well seasoned hardwood like oak or hickory? Thanks

    maybe in the mean. but here it's very very low.
    extremely so.
    unless maybe if you're talking detroit.

    still want cheaper pellets though.;lol

    20k for our house. full basement. bone dry no rot. came with new gas range, clothes dryer and nice new fridge. new water pipes because sellers let the old ones burst one winter. and new electric.
    with new roof, siding, insulation, new basement windows, new washing machine, full pellet stove set up and things like the generator, lawn mower and all other new household goods purchased, we came in under 45k.

    but maybe you're right. i never lived there.

    I can't build a shed for 20 grand here. Hell, the building permit cost alone is like 5 grand.

    taxes were around $850 last year. probably going up to around $1,000 this year.
    we actually spent more fixing it up than the purchase price.
    i love it here too. love my house. 924 sq. feet. but the basement is that big as well.
    we just tore down that funky side porch and had a new one built.
    like i said though, it's good we were retiring and not looking for jobs.

    somersets for $189 a ton! wow!;lol


    what the heck. i've derailed this so completely i may as well post a before pic. brb...

    St Earl, that house was waiting for you. Some houses aren't so lucky to find someone to make and keep it a home. Hope you have many happy years there. Don't let the taxes get you down. Mine doubled in the past ten years. Too many jobs have left this state but the bills stayed around.

    pellet king said "shotgun shack".
    and that's in the first line of that song.

    in any case, early in the thread i said i was jealous of the price the op got on somersets. and that i would just have to take comfort in how little my house cost.
    then it all went off the rails.
    but yeah, i wish pellets were cheaper here in the northeast.
