All wood for the next two years is split and stacked in the shed. Just yesterday I cleaned both chimneys. Everything is ready. Usually we're done burning by July so I got it taken care of.

I will do a stove pipe cleaning in August. Kinda gets me primed for burning season and Fall temps. I have two years worth of post oak, hickory, white oak, bradford pear, red maple and even some sweetgum.

Didn't clean the chimney today. Got sidetracked and hard to get motivated later doing something I don't need until October or early November. The fireplace will be there next week. :)

I have a detached 1800 sf insulated shop with an nc30 in it for the last 7 years. I burn on weekends and some weekdays too. That nc30 with 10’ of single wall gets run hot!

In the house I have a blaze king that uses 80% of my fuel just loafing along on low.

Plenty of time. This is an easily delayed job!

The time for me has past.. I cleaned my stove pipe in May when it was cooler.. Im sitting on 11 cord CSS and that was completed in February.. I went on the scrounge from February to the beginning of June when it was cooler, I've got about 5 cord log lenth. Its just waaayyyy to hot right now to be processing, yesterday was 95 and humid with nothing but 90s in the forecast. For me... summers for drying and not processing. Ill be working in the garden and doing other projects..

One chimney cleaned, one removed for replacement of liner and stove, one left to clean. Got next 3 years css. Working on 23-24 supply....only when cooler. Way too hot here for that. 90+ for next week.
