    Had a good weekend working around the house. Stained the siding and got some more wood stacked. With the front row done I will have 6 cords stacked there. Only a couple more cords left to process and my wood gathering for this summer will be complete!

    Sounds like a productive weekend Jake! How long til the wood you've recently processed will be burned?

    Since I've gotten 3-4 years ahead, the woodburning lifestyle has been a very enjoyable experience.

    most of it has been in wind rows in my side yard for the last two years. This stuff in the picture won't get burned for a year or two. I have good amount of seasoned stuff closer to my basement door, easier to get to in the winter with the snow. I'm trying to get a couple years ahead. I bought a nc-30 this year so I'm excited to so how it'll be with 2 year seasoned ash and maple! My old stove chewed through about 2 cords last year, only running it 60% of the time. I'm hoping the 30 will be much more efficient with the good seasoned stuff.

    I agree with that! I can't wait to fire up the stoves and my 2013 polaris assault and shred some snow with it! Nothing better than riding all day and coming home to a nice warm wood fire!

    Good work Jake...I'm looking forward to trying out my new stove too.

    Scotty I just read an article FWIW the Farmers Almanac is predicting a brutal winter.....it says they have been right about 80% of the time since the first publication. Bring it......

    Looking great.
    I will have a cold winter,
    maybe I can send some of it your way.

    Wood types?
    Always ask because I have birch & spruce here.

    John Boy, Those are 4x4's holding up the deck. Believe it or not we built it over code! Shes sturdy!


    Bogydave, Send it on over! I lived in Montana for 5 years, had some friends from Alaska in college in Montana with me. Always wanted to make it up there! As far as wood types there is Ash, Red Oak, white birch and maple in there too. They are old growth trees from clear cutting some of my property 2 years ago.

    May be to code, but the header seems to be collapsing in the picture. If it is in fact collapsing it needs to be addressed before it falls on your wood. Replace it with a rabbited 6x6 with a couple of bolts through the header.

    Header is good. I think its an optical illusion in the picture. We built the deck just over a year ago. Everything is still straight. I can see how you'd think that with the reveal, or spacing between the banisters looks funky. But its just the angle at which I took the picture making things look off.
