    As part of the original agreement as it relates to the "Wood haorders Proclamation of 1816."

    Chapter 9, subtitle 64 section A reads " All haorders which whom engage in the hoarding act with a partner shall evenly distribute all wood amongst involved parties. The hoarder with less overall burning time shall be responsible for storage of said hoarded wood, splitting of hoarded wood, transporting of hoarded wood, stacking of hoarded wood and providing a solid flow of non-light brew of senior partners choice."

    Dex,

    Are those firebrick on the "wall' of you narrow area, or just regular paver type brick? Are the pavers on the floor holding up OK to the heat?

    We thought about the firepit (they are nice) but for our property the big old fireplace looks better, it also fits our needs better for burning some of the old rotten pine.

    Those are actual Firebrick in the cooking area.

    As for the pavers, they were free and so far, none have cracked. Its got some standing water in it now, but if I get a chance today, I will try and get a pic.
