Just a quick note on posting pictures from iPad. I couldn't do it until I got the app, Tapatalk. That allows you to post pics from iPad.
Great pics and stories! Very much enjoying this thread.
The dealers here should do that, but they find it easier to lie to the customer and claim that the wood is two-year seasoned, even though it has been lying in a pile of 4' logs somewhere.
That makes a lot of sense. A disadvantage would be that the drying process takes a bit longer in meter lengths. I'm not as far ahead as I need to be on wood now that I'm helping some in-laws build up their wood reserves, so I have to stack stove length in single rows so the wind can do its job as quickly as possible. I'm now trying to get wood types that will dry by next Winter.
Thanks for sharing all the great pictures.
I kind of like the one meter length idea (although we would have to do a yard over here ) for stacking - I suspect it would help keep the stacks intact better.
We have a strong Czech presence in our area. Thomas Bata opened Batawa (the villages name) north or where I grew up. For some strange reason Canada also pays more for the luxury of a Husqvarna or Stihl saw, with an added 13% we call HST.
Great to hear from you Fly! Got screwed out of a lot of money in Prague by a taxi driver, but as long as we have wood burning in common I won't hold it against you My in laws are from Poland and they are old school and all have ceramic wood stove heaters in their homes. Really some incredible stoves. Even the water is heated by wood stove! Do you guys have anything like that? Pictures are great!
I've got the same stove as you - two of them actually. We also heat 100% with wood. The work is worth the heat! Many of my friends are complaining about how they have spent over $1000 on heating oil just over the winter. We haven't bought heating oil since we installed our first stove.
Hi Fly, in Germany they sell wood by the cubic meter, so I suspect that wood is cut to meter lengths since that makes it easier to size and sell a cubic meter of wood to someone.
