Haha, that's awesome! I already have a little tote bag, but that contraption looks like I could whack 2 birds with one stone LOL
I did the back rails, not very much painting and the front porch painting ( much more scaping and painting) last year (I'm glad that is done) but it looks so much better, I'm sure yours will too.Well, the big accomplishment here is that I got the porch stripped down and painted. On the wood front, I woke up the splitter yesterday now that it is starting to cool down. We have about a cord of wood to split up that I want to get stacked. It is bone dry and if I don't get to it the ants will. After that, the splitter will be up for sale I suspect.
That's always nice, looking forward to the pictures of you bucking up the logs and splitting with your new splitter.I've mentioned in some previous posts about how the utility has been doing a lot of cutting along the roads in my town this summer. I posted about how I flagged down a log truck and got a couple loads of logs.
There is actually more than one tree company cutting in different parts of town. Today, I was driving past the local ski area and one of the tree companies is using the parking lot as a staging area. I saw a bunch of trucks and some guys standing there talking, so I pulled in and asked if they would be sending a log truck around to get the logs like the other tree company did a few weeks ago. He said yes and took my number and address and said they would bring me some more logs.
This is so much easier than going out and scrounging it with my pickup truck. I am likely going to get several years worth of wood this summer. It's going to be a lot of processing, but I just ordered a splitter, so that should help. Luckily my wife is ok with several big log piles in the yard because she understands the value of this much free wood.
I'll post again when the next log truck shows up, probably in a couple weeks.
I like your idea of expanding the roof, maybe another 12" on all sides would keep a lot more rain out. Painted black would look sharp and help seasoning time, I'd be tempted to paint it black on all exposed structure, inside and outThat's a beautiful little shed and you sure do stack well too--3 cords --would have never thought it would hold that much.. The first week of Sept I am getting a 1/2 cord of mixed wood for storage and I sure hope I can stack it as good as you..I think my shed needs maybe more of a overhang on the roof and I am thinking of having another extension put on the sides and front as well as painting the roof a dark color to attract the sun to absorb more heat...Just an idea and what do you all think of this idea of mine.? Has anyone heard from our old caw and the kids lately? Is he and his family okay for he has been very quiet and i miss his pretty pictures. clancey
