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

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

To complete this BB, the minimum requirements are:
- put up one cord 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):

Here is my submission for the Woodland Care - Straw -  Put up One Cord of Firewood BB.

To document the completion of the BB, I provide the following photos
   +photo of my firewood storage area
   - harvesting some of the firewood that you will put up
   - action shot of putting up firewood (splitting and stacking)
   - one 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.

My dimensions 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 submit one cord of stacked firewood for this BB and would like to submit the second cord (plus 2 more) for the Wood Level Firewood BB.

Staff note (Rob Lineberger) :

Thanks for the great pictures. This BB is complete. Please bear with me as I am not sure about the granting of two BBs from one post, but I hear you regarding that request.

 
Is this the real life? Is this just fantasy? Is this a tiny ad?
