Due to the unseasonably warmish winter last year, we only used 1 1/2 of our log stores worth of wood so had another cubic metre of logs delivered by the tree surgeon we use. His wood is far cheaper than most, at £90, dry and stored under cover. It is also cut to the correct length for our small wood burner.
His truck doesn't tip up to make life easy for him so he stands on the back of it and paddles them out between his legs:
I then filled the wheelbarrow 12 times to get them around to the log stores where DB stacked them. This took about 25 minutes. We had about 2 wheelbarrow loads filled with logs too thick to burn easily, so he took them off to the log splitter (best investment ever) to chop them in half before stacking them.
We should now have enough wood for a really cold winter, right through to May if necessary. We have another log store that is filled to the rafters with kindling or wood waiting to be chopped into kindling.
Have a good weekend everyone.
