Winter stockpile

2014 final wood split and ready to store in shed.  Wonderful oak that has been dead for at least a year.

2014 final wood split and ready to store in shed. Wonderful oak that has been dead for at least a year.

We’re ready for a cold winter after this load is put in the woodhouse. I believe it’s a total of three pickup loads full. Hubby split it in three days while I was at work. Now we need to put it in the shed to keep it dry for winter use.

This will all go in the big stove in the living room. We’ve not brought in anything for the wood cookstove yet.

This fuel tank was used for heating oil when hubby’s aunt & uncle lived here. The back side of the tank was against the wood shed and years of rain off the roof, onto the tank and draining against the wall has rotted it badly and it was placed against a door to the back side of the shed.  This is what it looks like after years of rotting.

Woodshed needs repairs.

Woodshed needs repairs.  A hole and major damage is at the bottom of the door and a short board is holding it shut for the moment.

We’ll replace the door and use it to throw the wood in for stacking. It will be easier to back the truck up to that opening.  Always something to repair or replace but this door will make it easier to throw the wood in the building instead of the window.

The shed is already two-thirds full from wood we didn’t have to use last year.

We will surely be warm in the coming winter months!

UPDATE

Hubby repaired the rotten door today and did an amazing job.  He plans to paint the entire building with a old time mixture to preserve it the rest of OUR lives.  Here’s the results and it was the first door he ever made from scratch.  He’s so amazing!

 

Repaired with lumber cut from the farm.

  1. We burn between 10 and 12 cord a season. Just started replacing ours in the woodshed last week. First cord in second cord split and ready to go in this weekend. I start our woodburner in October and it burns through to April. Nothing cozier than a fire all winter and outside in our bonfire pit in the summer

  2. 2/3 is great but the man wants it packed to the ceiling and all four walls and I will not argue with him. That heat sure does feel good on cold windy nights!!!
    Miss your smiling face and cheerful self!!

  3. To me, a shed that is 2/3 full is a beautiful sight!!!!
