This is a badge bit (BB) that is part of the PEP curriculum.  Completing this BB is part of getting the wood badge in woodland care.

In this Badge Bit, you will put up three cords of firewood (completion pics)!


(source: Tender Break Permaculture Farm)

To complete this BB, the minimum requirements are:
- put up three cords of firewood (completion pics)
  - one cord is 128 cubic feet

To show you've completed this Badge Bit, you must provide proof of the following as pictures or a video (<2 mins):
   - harvesting some of the firewood that you will put up
   - action shot of putting up firewood
   - three cords of firewood stacked properly

Here is my submission for the Woodland Care - Wood -  Put up Three Cords of Firewood BB.

To document the completion of the BB, I provide the following:
  +photo of my firewood storage area
  - harvesting some of the firewood that I put up
  - action shot of putting up firewood (splitting and stacking)
  - three cord of firewood stacked properly
  +photos for dimensional perspective and dimensions

My space is 20-ft wide with a drop hammer in the middle.  I do stack behind and around it but it is likely less dense than the rest of the stack so I'm using 9.5' wide (as seen in photos) for the width instead of 10-ft for each storage area (east and west).

The dimensions for the west area are 9.5-ft wide x 7-ft tall x 4-ft deep
9.5*7*4=266 cubic feet of firewood
266/128=2.07 cords of firewood

The dimensions for the east area are 9.5-ft wide x 7-ft tall x 4-ft deep
9.5*7*4=266 cubic feet of firewood
266/128=2.07 cords of firewood

I submitted one cord of stacked firewood from the east side for the Straw level Firewood BB and would like to submit the second cord from the east section for the Wood Level Firewood BB.

East + West - Straw Level BB = Wood Level BB
2.07 + 2.07 - 1.0 = 3.1 cords

Staff note (Rob Lineberger) :

Thank you for re-submitting this, I think it is cleaner from a record-keeping perspective. Approved!
