Although there has been several days where I needed a fire per day and several that allowed me to skip a day, I've been faced with a delemma on several days when my storage is too warm to start a fire and too cold to skip burning because of upcoming temperatures and hot water usage are unknown. I would experiment more but all I need is to have the Mrs jump into a cool shower in the morning and nobody will have a good day. Last week while she was away to a seminar, I experimented a couple days and everything was comfortable the next morning but I don't want to chance it with her home. She uses hot water for everything. Even brushing her teeth. Besides that, I'm using such a small amount of wood it looks like I won't have space enough to stack the wood that I have outdoors in the woodshed following the heating season. Should I be complaining?
