    Single Row stacks are nice, another thing to add. When I move the wood in my basement or garage I like to run an oscillating fan and dehumidifier for a couple weeks, because it always seems to bring moisture in. Of course this defeats some of the cost savings of being a wood burner...

    After reading all the posts and looking at the pictures, I decieded to cover only the tops. I think there will still be plenty of air circulation. Other pic is the cookie box for all the oddball stuff.

    timus nice setup!....looks alot like my pile. I have a bunch of recently cut and split stuff I have to stack yet. there is a BIG HOLE in the middle of my stack as that is where I started burning from this season......that stuff in the middle has been seasoning for three years so that's where I started.......I'll try to post a pic of mine soon.....not nearly as nice as others on here!
