The wood box for 16 inch wood is on casters, has a cover, stores under the table and has doubled as a seat at the kitchen table for little ones.

Same... In the winter I leave the house before it's light and get back after dark. No way I'm trudging out to the wood shed after work. if I didn't have the whole week's worth stored inside I'd probably just say screw it and turn the thermostat up lol. On the weekend my wife and I team up to get it refilled and it goes pretty fast.

I don't understand the binary thinking of those of you who think there's no middle ground between "trudging out to the woodshed", and "keeping wood in my living room". As begreen and I already demonstrated, keeping wood on a porch or patio immediately outside your door is one good choice, among others. I fetch wood in my bedroom slippers and PJ's, it's on a covered patio immediately outside my walk-out basement door, where the bugs stay frozen and inactive until loaded into the stove. My wood sheds are 200 - 300 feet from the house.

I just don't have a good place to keep wood near the house where it won't get snowed on. I like to bring it in that way it stays dry and I don't have to put my shoes on to go get it. For some reason I'm super lazy about filling the wood box next to the stove so I often just go to the back room where my week's stash is and grab an armload.

The way I see it, wood makes the same mess no matter when I bring it inside. Haven't had an issue with bugs.

Wood gets tossed in thru the window; rack holds a total of about 1 cord. Fuel is transferred via the blue tub to the stove.

Any bugs pretty much stay in the basement. The flyers go to the window where they are easily removed with a dustbuster. The cats are entertained by the crawlies before dispatching them.

If we had the stove in the main living area we would no doubt do things a bit differently.

I am fortunate to have had a porch in my last two houses. My current one is enclosed. They make it an easy choice to store a good jag of wood in a rack This one holds 5/8 cord in two tiers. Can then fill the woodbox shown above as needed. I too appreciate that it is slipper friendly.
