Who else moves this years wood supply closer to the house? and how and when do you get it there?? I have a 12x12 covered porch off the rear of the house. From ground level there is a 7 step staircase to the porch. Over the last 6 years I have brought up 3 cords and stacked it on the deck. It takes me about 2 weeks to move the 3 cords, a little here and a few hours there and 2 weeks later its done. I have to say walking out the back door in my slippers to retrieve wood on a snowy cold morning works for me. despite the work it takes in October it is well worth it. does anyone else have a system simular to this, moving wood close to the house??
