    This should be posted in the boiler room forum. Do you want it moved there?

    We had back at it and knocked out about half of what was left after yesterday. All the knotty "rounds" are done, just the big ones remain.

    We've had a bunch of stuff going on but I have been working on a new plow area for the snow just off the driveway, I hope to finish it by the end of next week.

    I haven't been taking any pictures lately but I did pull two smaller stumps with the backhoe on the 4540. I'm just waiting for the leaves to fall so I can fell a bunch of ash so I can s&s it before winter. I'm hoping for another 10 face cord or just over 3 cord.

    We haven't been burning yet and after looking at the forecast, it should be another 11 days before we need to unless the boss wants one.

    We've had a few fires, but we also don't have all of the first floor insulated yet. I too am waiting for the leaves to fall before I do any more tree work.

    We usually start burning on Sept. 15 but it will still be warm enough out this year that we won't need to. We'll wait until we see some colder nights before we bring in some shoulder season wood.

    We have some ash on our house property that I plan on felling, in the spring I felled nine trees of different sizes, We have ten face cord from those ash trees.

    Done splitting the Ash. Seems the heartwoood wasn't as big in this yard tree as it was on some other woods trees I've cut. Slower growth= More heartwood? I guess this batch will dry faster, though. I already took two quad trailers of un-split rounds to the stacking spot at my wife's sisters, but I think I can hand-split most of that. First I need to replace a couple of busted pallets, and I think I will spin all of the pallets so that the 2x4s are perpendicular to the rows. That will give me more width and maybe the pallets will hold up better.

    Split the cherry I cut last week. I have a lot (the rest of the tree) to cut down and buck but trying to keep things clean.

    This area I've been working will be for snow storage in the winter and trailers once the white stuff is gone.

    Picture 9564 is where we took 10 trees out of, the majority of them were tall thin pines and some dead cherry, in picture 9565 is another area between the cherry and the pine we'll put more snow but first I'll clean it up, 9568 is a small maple that was bent over from another tree falling on it so I cut it down and the deer are feeding off it and the rest of the pictures are from splitting of the pine and the 4540 bringing them to Pineville.

    Nice sink and kitchen Chas0218. We did a master bath this year with a farm house sink with a copper faucet.

    Resized_20190913_194323_7167.jpeg here is the sink and faucet we put in out master bath. I like the farm house style better it is a much bigger deeper sink. I hate those little vanity sinks.

    My wife and I agree, that looks great and functional. We currently have a stupid vanity sink and hate it. We can hardly wash our hands in it...

    When well seasoned, ash is great firewood. Burns hot with lively flames. People say you can burn it green. Never tried and never will.

    There are a bunch of people up this way that burn green wood, some think the wood will be too dry if seasoned for a year or more.

    I'm seeing a bunch of green firewood that has been delivered in the neighborhood this year, some do it every year but a few got very late deliveries.

    The Farm next-door sold a 2 hector lot to a lad from the city 8 years ago
    He built a very nice house and burns wood. For the first 2 years, I tried
    to explane to him the benefits of seasoned wood but he continued to
    buy green firewood . He often complained that he got poor heat for the
    garbage wood. Two years ago he had a chimney fire (no Damage) so
    last fall I sold he 3 year old sugar maple at a discount. In the spring he
    said the stove never worked so well. Last night he was over and wants
    2 cord of what I sold him last year. I thought he was going to have a
    heart attack when I told him 3 years seasoned wood at 16 to 18 % mc
    will cost 350 Dollars a cubic cord. Last years wood that I sold him was
    also 16 to 18 % mc . I sold it to him for what he had been paying for green
    He said he was going back to his old supplier. I wished him good luck

    A neighbor across the road said last year he had a hard time keeping his house 65 but tells me how he can burn green firewood in his outside wood furnace.

    He had his house insulated better (walls & ceiling) before he had new siding put on so I would think it's the wood. I'm not sure when he cuts his wood but I'm seeing him still coming in with trailer loads of splits.
