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.
Heating oil tank on the backside of the woodshed.
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.
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!
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!
