Second Great Wall of Cordwood
With the help of Jo, we got the second wall complete (Another 7' x 54' wall). That now makes about 24 face cords of wood stacked. I estimate that we have about another 4 to 5 more to go. That puts us real close to what we will need for our total requirements. Until we finish the design work and know what kind of windows and doors we will have, I won't know for sure. What I do know though, is that we're pretty darn close!
The weather was wonderful for this time of year. Sunny and light winds with daytime temps in the 30's and nights in the teens. There's about 8 to 10 inches of snow on the ground and I couldn't make it up our hill even with 4 wheel drive! I had to go back in town and buy tire chains. That did the trick. That is a challenging hill to get up when there's snow on the ground.
One more trip ought to do it for stacking all of that wood.
