    My wife did give me permission to do this out back, just not up front like this :)

    Taken at a nearby town:

    I showed these pictures to a friend at church and he said that the guy does that every year. Splits and stacks all summer, then burns in the winter. Now we know why he has so much wood for such a small house. Burnin' green wood

    The rows sure are neat. I wonder if he runs a string across the fronts and top to get them all so even. And you're right, it dosn't look real dark or aged.

    Must be a good neighborhood or else someone would have to be out there 24/7 with a gun.

    Pretty low income small town. Maybe it's the "Minnesota Nice" security system?

    I see 18 -19 sections that look like 1/3 cord each (assuming 16" split length)....so, guesstimate 6-7 cords.

    That particular person is probably above average income. The rest of the town is mostly under the poverty line. If you drive down the street any other way, it is pretty rough looking.

    Probably worth at least 100-125K in my town and houses are cheap here. looks like alot of wood when you only stack 1 split deep. Still a good bit though.

    Shane, You should save him, and introduce him to Hearth.com. You think he would fit in?

    Wish I knew the guy. He deserves a hand shake for his effort, and then a prompt visit from Dennis to educate him on dry wood ;)

    He'd be lucky to get $75k for that house in that town. Go 10 miles north, and he could get $100k.

    Kind of looks like my stacks - see avatar. The load area of each frame is 11' long x 4' high and holds approximately 3/4 cord crowned at the top. His stacks are much prettier than mine... :(
