    Well - FINALLY I got a chance to finish stacking the rest of the pile. I had to cut a good bit (about 1/2 of the seasoned wood) so that it will fit in my stove... I had no idea it would be that much of it, but heck, it got me a chance to practice on the chainsaw for a while and that is worth something eh? Ok - rationalization.

    So the final score (pun intended) is:

    Green wood: 1.25 cords
    Seasoned: 1.1 cord
    Total: 2.35 cords

    Once I factored in all my $costs (gas, bribes to helpers but ignoring my time) I paid $187.70/cord - so not a bad deal as I rather enjoyed the time spent 'playing' with the woodpile (as I think my wife looks at it). I'll post pictures in a bit if folks are interested - Looking at the piles I can see I learned a lot between the first and second. I thought the first (green) looked pretty good until I built the second one and now the first looks pretty sloppy to me. Ahh.. no, I won't be re stacking just for that reason :)

    Given that I plan to let the wood season for two years I have a strong feeling I won't be able to stand to look at it that long... especially as I know I'll get even better at stacking as my skills improve over time eh? I'll get better and faster too I bet as time goes on.

    Ok - finally pictures (takes time you know...).

    4 pictures - two of each stack. I think it should be pretty obvious which is the green and which is the seasoned wood. The seasoned stack is in the original location where the pile was.

    Enjoy!

    Huh..the smaller individual piles are way more pleasing to the eye, they work well.
