    I no sooner posted this thread - then I looked up and there was an advertising banner showing a hand truck for fire wood with a canvas liner. That looks perfect - just what I need. It's scary - like Hearth.com is psychic ..... I used the beach towel again to fill my bin - it's not good on the back. It's going in the trash and I'm gonna have a hand cart for next season! Thanks for the input

    tractor and 17 cu foot cart gets me about a weeks worth from the main pile/stack to the front porch. From there I just bring it inside by hand.

    I store my wood in the garage and use this to move it into the living room where it sits with the wood in it:

    My helpers Zeke and Big Blue...........Zeke gets the little wood to the door step of the house for the fireplace.
    Big Blue gets the big wood to the outdoor stove for the house, barn and garage.
    Long as we don't run outta diesel we got it made.

    I guess I take for granted my attached two car garage. We keep only one car in it and it is not too cluttered since I have a workshop/storage shed out back. So I store one to two cords at a time in the garage. When the weather is dry I just fill up my s10 off the wood piles and back it into the garage and unload. Then as I need wood I use one of those leather slings and carry it from the garage into the house to the stove. Years ago I used to just keep one of those hoops filled up in the garage and would need to refill it once or twice a week. I can see where different houses would require different methods. Tony

    I've got a nice size garage that is attached to the house and stored ~2.5 full cords in it. We had a January thaw and I restocked it then from outside the garage. Should I be concerned about bugs getting in to the house?

    Until I moved I always ricked onto surplus wagons & hay trailers. This year I thought I'd try conventional ricks. Trust me, next years wood is all going on surplus wagons & trailers to be kept in a unused tobacco barn. This year I've used this between the wood pile & the back porch:

    Yeap - that's the one I need. That'll get it done.

    I also store some in the garage and was considering parking one car outside - but that one car would have to be my truck and I don't like getting into a cold vehicle and cleaning snow off it.

    I use a wheel barrel to move wood from the back yard to the front covered porch. If it snows, I snowblow a path. It takes about 5 wheel barrel loads to give me enough wood to burn 24x7 for the week. The stove is on the other side of the chimney shown in the pic so I use a canvas wood carrier bag to bring a load in.
