  1. I know first hand you do not want to put wood next to your siding on your home. Please remember it is wood, it attracts bugs and they will get into your home any way they can. Putting the firewood away from a structure makes more sense.

  2. I had to smile seeing your selection of wood racks. Here in Maine, when I heated a lot with wood, we’d use 4 cords a year (a cord is 4’x4’x8′ big). The wood in #11 would last maybe 2 days. We used to open a cellar window near the woodstove and chuck wood in furiously for at least 20 min. to get enough wood in to last for 2 weeks! (It sometimes got stacked, sometimes we just worked off the pile). I love a pretty fire but it sure is a lot of work!

  3. Hubby and I just assembled the upside down A log holder in less than 5 minutes, getting ready for cold winter days and nights never got easier than this !!! We are very happy with the results …..
