I started to clear our summer house yard. At first, I'll cut small spruces to give larger trees more sunlight, more open space to grow and rework the property to have less swampy feel.

Again, clearing some spruce trees

Is that a Dorlet HT 2000 that has the fire ? I really enjoy mine after I learned how to use it after having a Vermont casting's Defiant for 30 some years.

I have used two of these 8X8 platforms for stacking wood for the last few years. I liked using them for building roundhouse stacks. They were built using all scrap/leftover lumber over time. But I came across a bunch of heavy-duty storage pallets that a company was throwing out. Brought them home and decided to see if I could piece them together into a woodshed.

Started stacking the pallets to make the walls and reinforcing them with some 2X4s. I ran short by one pallet so I am going to have to build up one side some more to make this work.

Working out well so far. Have to box it in across the front once I am done building up the wall. Need to figure out a roof solution. Hopefully, I can salvage some corrugated metal from somewhere. Altogether I am in it for about $100.

Have a lot to do. This shed will get filled very quickly I hope.

I'm still doing my dead pine cleanup of this area, in picture 1156 you can see the base was rotten and in picture1158 is the dead pine I felled/split, four loads went over to the outside fireplace

The last rounds I split were from the downed pine in picture 1155, another two plus loads were split and brought over to the outside fireplace.

I run the single wall stack at 200 to 300 F. most of the time . My thermostat is about 3 foot up from stove . I do run it up to 400 to 450 F. every morning For 20 mins. when I refill. If I load it at 9-10 pm I have a nice bed of coals { using Oak or Ash } in back and a small amount of ash in front to scoop out in the morning. Much better than the Vermont Castings stove that I had for almost 40 years.
Hope this helps.
