Anything wrong with a big pile on a tarp covered with a tarp? Just installed a EKO 60. No storage yet. Radiant Floors + HydroAir When i was i kid we heated with wood, but i have not burned wood in 25 years. I am looking for experience on the issue of storing wood. I once read that each piece of wood is handled 15 times before it burns. I want to avoid wasting time and energy. I get cordwood delivered in 3 cord loads. The first was dumped, picked up over several days, stacked under the car port then raked and swept up the mess. I have been wondering why not just leave it in a pile. build a simple over the rope tarp shelter above the pile and fetch it from there as necessary to burn? I appreciate any experienced input.
