    ^well I'm thinking you must have a very well insulated house to burn 24/7 in our area...esp on 4* days like this. We have a 3k house too and use 3x+ what you burn...at least.

    Just remember when planning your shed volume and footprint that it's hassle to stack wood effectively more than 6 ft high.

    I've burned about 1.5 cords so far, I use wood for about 80% of my heat.

    I built my shed 20x20 Ionly use half of it for wood the other for the log splitter,lawn mower & other stuff. I try to start the winter with 10 rows of wood 6' tall x 9' long I cut my wood 22" long. About how much is that. I built my first fire this year on Nov. 1. last year I used it all but one row but it was almost all yellow poplar. This year it is all hard wood.

    Your rows add up to about 7 3/4 cords. (6 x 9 x (22/12) x 10) / 128
