Thats a little better than 2 full cord. The racks belong to the customer and he has a forklift.
I almost forgot, the biggest round to go through the Wolfe Ridge yet:
And some silver maple waiting:
So not much for an update. Work has been crazy, our Son Graduated from High School and its been a bit warm lately.
This was the 5th and final load I hauled to my saw shop... Final tally was 8.5 full cords which netted $1530. All the wood was free to me.
I did also sell 1.5 face cords of custom 11" wood to a local guy that has a Morso stove. That was $100.
Nice setup and good luck
Looks great eipo . I hope business is going well. It seems to me that the biggest challenge in the wood business once you get a system set up would be aging the wood.
Its moving as fast... or I should say as slow as I want it to. I dont work well in the heat and its been hot this summer.
I seem to be catering to specific tastes... 75% of what Ive sold has been short wood for Morso stoves. The most recent I was able to sell them the cut offs that have been sitting for about 3 years. They were tickled pink to have seasoned wood they can burn this year because they couldn't find it anywhere else.
Seasoning and rotating will be a challenge with limited space. But I'm not intending to be high volume.
Your system looks pretty efficient for sure! Be careful, a few years ago I said I wouldn't sell firewood, & now I'm looking at around 50 cord this year. I have a habit of buying "cool" equipment & then thinking gee maybe I should make a little money with this stuff. It just snowballs every year. Where ya at in MI?
