no to get it filled up..as Ron and Joel are both in a bad way health wise..we ordered 18 cord to be delivered later this week..seasoned firewood cut in boiler size pieces..
cement floor..good wood..what more could i want..(someone to pile it into the shed maybe?)
i honestly don't know how much wood we'll be able to fit inside these sheds..my son is going to clear an area outside of the sheds where we can stack excess firewood as well..we plan to have 40 cord put up before winter even though we hope to really cut back on what we use this year...last year we were learning the boiler and also had wood improperly cut for the size we needed for the boiler..it was smaller stuff we had been using in a small fireplace..the boiler requires large size pieces..the smaller stuff burned up so fast in it.
please just take care you don't get hurt--i wish i could do the work that you do
i miss working and working outside..

brenda can you tell me the name of the flower that has yellow petdels and a
red center --i think they are lovely---

if you mean in the second picture..those are gaillardia..they are also called blanket flower..and if you send me your mailing address on a personal message..i'll mail you some seeds as there are some ready to collect seeds from in my front garden..
And are you talking about real cords (4' X 4' X 8' or face cords? It would have to be a pretty large shed to hold 18 full cords!
the boiler is too big for our home..we know that..we got screwed..we plan to try to line it with more firebrick to close up the excess space in it and hold fire longer with less wood..
we also were having a lot of trouble experimenting with it the first year..
we burned 40 cord of the small pieces of split wood..if we had had larger boiler wood..we believe we could have probably gotten away with half..we heated 3 buildings with it ..
my husband also has a head injury and was totally cluelss about how to fire the furnace..we know a lot more know and have huge wood..the pieces some weigh 50 pounts or more..thyey will burn a lot longer..lmaybe one or two days for some of them..so we should not have to stoke ti every 4 to 6 hours like we had to last year..
ireally ccannot tell you with any serious knowledge..maybe i can better advise next year.
