    Chainsaw Issue

    This thread is over 4 years old, I'd gather they figured out the problem or just buy wood at this point.

    Oct. 4th first fire

    I could have lit one last night too, had a touch of frost this morning but I wasn't prepared. I'm going to bring dome wood in tonight in case we have another cold one. Funny how we're dying to light the first fire and can't wait to light the last one.

    Looking for new large woodstove

    Hi Phil, Im a neighbor in Mass. I'm heating 2800sf with the Progress Hybrid, the Ideal Steel would also work, if I had room for a big free stander I'd look at the Blaze King King. The new hearthstones intrigue me too. Lotsa choices for you.

    New Stove or try to re-gasket

    I would definately replace with a more efficient modern stove. What model depends on how much heat you want and what your wife likes.

    Which stove to buy....(Already read the sticky thread)

    Yes that's what I did with the Progress Hybrid but Jotuls also rear vent, that's the best way to di it with your big fireplace.

    How do I split these odd rounds?

    I'd be happy if I had it, break into smaller pieces, throw it in a homemade bin and let it season, good shoulder season wood.

    Does this look like a reasonable price?

    That's not an overall bad price no matter how you slice it, I was quoted $4,600 for a Quad insert 12 years ago without an insulated liner and was the best quote I got at that time.

    Could be a type of hickory, pignut or mockernut maybe.

    How do I split these odd rounds?

    I made a box out of pallets and scrap wood and toss them in there, I have one boxfull that's seasoned 5 years. I'll be using it during shoulder season.

    Building rack with plastic pallets

    I liked your idea of fastening them to 2 bys, I would then make a rack with 8 foot or if three pallets 12 foot 2bys and tie it all together, solid and you could cover easy, maybe even make a permanent cover for winter.

    Does wood dry when it's freezing outside?

    It dries in the winter but more slowly, someone had a chart that shows how much wood dries each month and the winter months were less.

    Insulation around insert

    Use roxul and you can still do a block off plate, I did my first one after my insert was installed.

    Same here, Sept-Oct are great months, beautiful cool weather, good time of the year to work on your wood supply.

    Ready for winter!

    You'll get longer burns once you get used to the stove, it's a learning curve going from an old stove to the newer ones.

    PreFab fire wood suggestions

    Get a metal carport, I see a lot of people use them for firewood and you can fit a lot under a one car carport.
