tried something new for piling firewood. It's called a holz hausen.

An 8' diameter pile of wood. You are supposed to put a pole in the middle, measure how high you're planning to pile it, make a mark at that height, and another mark 20% lower on the pole.

you stack, and, 3 months later, it's supposed to be ready to burn. I wanted to try, as a way to disprove the 3 month boast...

this one was done piled by my wife, a little over a month ago.



as you can see, that wood is really drying in the fast lane...


the pieces placed sideways are to keep the middle of the stack angling downwards. I didn't need to do that...

that's why my stack keeled over 3 times... It's not as round as when it started...




I do believe 3 months drying will in fact make ready for the stove.

Wait - you're still burning WOOD for heat??? Dude, you need to step up to natural gas! It's clean-burning, plentiful, and relatively cheap.

And, if you ever have delivery problems, no worries! According to your own stories; all you have to do is find a Newfie, feed him some pickled eggs, pork rinds and beer, then have him disconnect the hose from the gas meter and stick it... uhhhh..... O.o

Can't do that with a woodstove - you'd never be able to clear out before your house entered low earth orbit!
