    Im about to burn for the first time in the next couple of weeks. Right now I have an iron hoop, standard size, holding wood on my porch for easy access. how many days of firewood would you guess that the hoop holds if you're burning 24/7 in a 2000sqft house w decent insulation?

    Im thinking about getting a 2nd hoop for the porch instead of stacking it directly on the concrete...plus it would look nicer imo.

    I have two on my front porch. They each hold about 2 or 3 days worth for me.

    I have one hoop and burning 24x7 it's about 2, maybe 2.5 days in a 2000 sq/ft home. I stacked additional wood carefully on the covered deck to make up a weeks worth of wood.

    This year I am building my own wood holder that will hold 7 days. It's two 4x4's about 6 ft long laid on the deck 16" apart with 5ft re-bar on the ends. It will hold a little less than 1/3 of a cord if stacked up to the top (5ft). This should be enough for 1 week. I'll use the existing hoop for small rounds and kindling.

    I have two of the hoops from HD for like 15$ each. I really like them. One is filled to the brim with kindling and the other with splits. The splits last 2-3 days but I don't want to run out so I usually refill every other evening after work. The kindling hoop will last about half the season.

    In the summer I pop the bottom spreader bar off and hang the hoop on a nail in the barn.

    I have the hoop from HD that's about 40" tall or so. In the fall it holds about a full weeks worth. Dead winter it feeds an Oslo for three days.
