    I've been cutting like mad since August. 'Too busy earlier in the summer. I finally have as much wood into the garage as I can squeeze:

    8w X 8.5h X 1.15 (13.8 inches) in front of the Wife's car, but 3 ranks deep (with a wall on either side to hold up the stack)

    10.5 X 8.5 X 1.15 along one side of garage.

    6 X 8 X 1.15 on one wall of shop

    9 X 4.5 X 1.15 on other wall.

    I figure about 3 cords of wood, and it'll last -- maybe -- to early March. I'll bring more down from mountain-storage then. Wood is big for its heat production, but it is also a ritual I would not give up for anything. 'No cold wx here yet.

    Regards

    You have 282 cubic feet. That's 2.2 cords.

    I'll figure again. Damn. Did you include the first measurement X 3, to allow for three ranks deep?

    No. I missed that. Sorry.

    The actual calculation then comes out to 439 cubic feet or 3.4 cords.

    Hello all, new poster here. I've been lurking around here for a few months and though I'd share something I found. I have no idea of it's REAL accuracy but I've found it helpful.

    I use a simple Excel spreadsheet to keep track of my firewood supply. It’s particularly handy if you have multiple stacks.

    Thanks for sharing. It works really good for the multiples like you said. Easy and simple to use.

    Take care in stacking wood in your garage, it just takes a little bump of the bumper to knock your nicely stacked wood onto the hood of a car... 8.5' tall can be very unstable for firewood.
