Looks great. Do you burn a lot more than that in a yr up there, or is it not your primary heat source.
Are those little lights on the front corners, they look nice, I'm going to need some inside mine this yr, not sure if the cheap led ones will work in the cold well.
I did a little work on my wood shed getting ready for some concrete :clap:.

That shed there is for the wood I burn in the shop stove. I dont run it all winter, just weekends or days I am out there working. The house is heated with an OWB. That wood is closer to the house.

Those are lamps on the corners but they are getting replaced today. I have this style lamp in several places around the property and they work very well even in thru a Minnesota winter. Price is right and they are plenty bright.

The boiler runs about six cord or so a year. Not too bad really as the house is newer and not a McMansion by any means.
That isn't bad being up in cold country :cold:.
They are pretty handy and work good for security and such. That light come on at night and you know something is out there.....usually a deer LOL
Those will work well for around and inside the woodshed. I'll probably run 120 to the shed and then I can have a few lights inside, it gets dark out there in the winter so early, last night I was grading out there until 9:30 lol.

Started all the boys up yesterday and had to cut something. Took the 441 and cut this high stump off, of course I had to noodle it View attachment 736677 View attachment 736678
I had a dream once, that I started all the saws up in one day. I got a bunch of other stuff done too. Then I woke up and realized that my dream day had 72 hours in it.:)

Sounds like a good problem to have.
I like my saws, but in reality, there is no way I can keep them all in good running order. Some good runners sit for a year before I get an itch to climb up on the ladder to get it of a top shelf. I tell friends to pick one day a month and start up all their gas powered equipment. I can't follow my own advice. I just bought a JD X540 from a friend that moved to SC to retire. It has a 4' snow blower on the front, so at least I don't have to start the snow blower anymore.

Finally finished with my pile, pretty sure this hardwood will not be dry by winter, 2 cords I reckon. May have to buy firewood this year and save this for 2020. Not near as big as most of your guys piles but this is all I can gather and split in 5 months with an atv, ms261, & X27.
