Our woodhouse is a 24′ x 24′ and about 30 feet high. We fill it every spring when the weather cooperates with dead wood that we find on the farm. Most all of it is from dead oak, ash, walnut or locust trees and we try to keep it under roof so that we have no reason to have flu fires during the winter.
This is what we had left over from 2019 winter.
First thing in the spring we start checking fences for downed trees on them. Those trees are blocked up and then cut for firewood.
This summer and fall a very good friend of ours came and cut trees that had fallen onto the pasture. Most of it was still on a stump so it will dry through this fall and winter as we use up the drier wood.
Our daughter and son-in-law also brought us a huge pile of slabs and it’s in the woodhouse ready to use.
The woodhouse is full and we have a good start on the supply for winter 2021.
