    I got bored this afternoon and moved some wood closer to the back door. Its a mix of oak, poplar, sweet gum, hickory, maple and some other stuff I'm not sure about. How long do y'all think it will last me doing 24/7 burning? IMG_20121230_164735.jpg

    10 days is my guess, that's at 24/7. If that load had some locust and white oak in it, it'd stretch you out to around 12-14.......

    A week here keeping my place at a steady 70 degrees with the Charmaster furnace. Nice lab, looks just like "old Bruiser" pushing up daisies now.

    I know everyone's usage will be different ill find out how long it lasts here soon I'm just trying to figure out what my usage is. I also put it there so that when the meter man comes to see why I don't have a bill this month they'll know it's just cause I'm burning wood.
