    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:.
    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.

    Broke up some real nice pin oak today. Only had about 3 splits that looked a little to punky so I tossed them in the pile to heat the house. Split pretty nice. I tossed some 6 mil plastic under the wooden crates. This wood is really dense, it will burn a long time in my smoker CAD72146-AB16-48DD-A345-A7B25FFFC71A.jpeg D165AF56-1835-4E8F-A723-0F2548F1FC95.jpeg 5294AA9D-BFF9-4217-8CE4-02A520642754.jpeg 00B456BC-0E70-43EF-A7F4-1A2A76369FCF.jpeg

    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.:)

    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.

    Put together one more wood crate today. Been having trouble spilling when moving them so I strapped some masonite to it for moving purposes. IMG_20190520_102616372.jpg

    What I really love is the 4' snowblower on the front. Now that I have that, it will probably never snow again!

    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.
