As some of you know, I was fortunate to purchase a new home and I thought keeping a journal of sorts of my wood burning adventures might be fun to keep and get new ideas from the group. Where do I start? Quick inventory: Previous owners wood pile: Found a decent sawbuck behind the wood pile: Stove: Vermont Casting sitting in the fireplace (photo coming soon) House is primarily oil with forced hot air. Some To do's - clean chimney - did this yesterday, forgot to take a picture - clean stove out - gather up downed trees from power company - setup wood processing area - have a cement slab close to the wood pile that might work well - build indoor firewood rack, thinking something like this: We have a sliding glass door to the porch so that'll be easy access to wood so the indoor rack would allow me to stock up with going to the porch every time I need a log and give it time to warm up. Do I need to be concerned about bugs coming in too? In order to get wood onto the porch/deck, I need to add another opening or door as you can only enter from the far side. If not entertaining for you all, I think it'll be fun to keep track of everything here. Thanks!
