I'm just venting here. Are your piles situated sorta close to the house? I'm having a discussion with myself as to where to put this and put it some where...where it doesn't look like my house is a milling yard. If I put it far enough not to see during the off season, when winter comes, its too hard to get to because of snow accumulation and just the terrain of my yard. Too close, then I get the milling yard effect ( a constant "in progress" look or a MESS). Rather not have that in direct view from the street. I like the rustic look but with the amount of wood required to burn properly and to season long enough....you'll need many many cords stacked and just seasoning.
