Logs for the Woodstove – stacked by Tony Sargeant against the wall (see previous post)



A good double row of logs neatly stacked which will be covered later to keep them dry (see previous post). It is much cheaper to buy logs by the load like this than as single sacks, but it does mean you have to have somewhere to store them: And the energy to stack them (this took Tony three hours of stacking – and a somewhat sore back at the end – but very satisfying – one is reminded of Tolstoy). These logs are cut and stored in a barn for some months on a local Shropshire Estate before delivery so dry enough to burn well without needing the expense of kiln drying (the green bag is for the small bits of kindling left after larger logs have been stacked).


Logs for the Woodstove – or – Recipe for a Bad Back!



Delivered just after Christmas the logs were dumped on the driveway of the Shropshire home of Tony Sargeant. It is fortunate to live in a wooded part of the country with plenty of wood around and so relatively cheap. It does however take time and energy to stack and cover them – hence the bad back the next day. See the next post for the uncovered stack.
