We had a couple of weeks off from delivering firewood because of the burn ban, terrible wildfires and thick smoke. Just as the rain moved into the area, we got busy getting as much wood as we could stacked into the bull barn so we would have a bit a supply to take us into fall.
It is a tricky dance we do with space. We did not build the barns with the thought of producing firewood bundles so any available square footage is premium real estate. I commandeered the far wall of the barn from the stack of hay bales to the open side of the structure.
We currently have about ten cord of fir wood, kindling and hardwood that has been split into pieces that are dry and ready to bundle. But the pile will dwindle quickly if we don’t get busy getting some more split wood undercover where it can complete the seasoning process. Already the fall orders have begun to pick up and the OWC is busy with deliveries each week.
Anytime that is not being spent in the barn bundling will put me out at the log decks, cutting and splitting the wood that will be future bundles.
