Wood heat

The wood stove is still amazing me. One log at a time and we’re able to heat half the house all day long.

That means no heating bill, people. (For this half of the house, anyway).

Now if only the extended snow hadn’t kept us behind on splitting wood. We’ve got a metric ton of logs (from the land clearing) down by the pond waiting to be split. They’re getting wetter and wetter – meanwhile we’re running really low on split, dry wood.

I see lots of splitting in Josh’s weekend plans.

    Oh I know! I often wish I had a log-splittin’ robot around here. We have a hulky friend who comes by once in a while (and ASKS to do it, isn’t that awesome?), but he isn’t due for a while I really dont’ want to start paying the heating bill again!

    Dad used to just bring the wet logs in, stand them on end atop the hearth in front of the woodburning stove, and they would dry out as he burned the other wood. Then when the logs were sufficiently dry to his expectations, he’d just throw the whole log in. He said the whole log burned slower and he didn’t have to go back outside as often in the cold and wet weather to get more logs…
