    I guess close to 3 cords. Looks like a nice place for your wood to dry out, plenty of sun and wind exposure. Very nice homes in the back ground, which one is yours?

    Sure but only in winter so you can tend the stove.
    You have your choice of 3 spare bedrooms each with it's own bathroom

    Actually it is I have to deal with all the lazy people who are envious and would rather think that things are just handed over. They didn't see me working my regular 50-60 hrs then building the house from 5pm -11pm every night of the week and from 6 am-10pm on the weekends. Most don't to relize all the blood sweat and tears it took to build it not to mention the years of saving and hard work to get where I am at.
    I have taken on a f-them attitude I am proud of what I have done and will continue to accomplish.

    It looks like a very nice house, you should be proud of what you built. I like all the garage space.

    Worked for it?? His real name is Joe Billy GATES!!! (I really have no idea, but I thought it might be funny)
    Hard work pays off? You must be over 25, cause most of those under 25 thinks hard work is for those over 25.
