Wood yard, Each row 6’ tall.
Ash-stounding!We lay out a row of pallets about 20’ wide and build a wall on both edges. Then we dump firewood onto the pallets from the end and over the wall until full.
Lay out another row of pallets and repeat.
20’ wide, 6-8’ tall, and just keeps getting longer.
From the road, it looks like it is all stacked

I've also got the Drolet HT2000.My stove takes 21/22 inch splits depends if you put them in north to south or east to west ,Drolet 2000.
I love it . Should have replace the old Dutch west sooner . The heat is incredible and it uses les wood .
Get a wood boiler! 10 times more efficient than a wood stove, heat other spaces or pool with it, no more bringing wood in the house and sweeping up wood debris or cleaning up ash inside the house.I wish I would have known more about fireplaces and wood burners when I built my house, I'd done things differently.
Yes Oak is a great burning wood, but you have to season it for years first.catching up with some farm work recently, i got into some cut oak i had sitting on some big bridge RR timbers from some tree work last year. the oak was not too appealing to me as it din't burn well... even 6 mo later. tried to give it away once. lol. glad i did not!! really burns well now with the aging and drying, seasoning. burns great and has a good slow burn, sustaining quality about it. lasts a bit longer than the other oak firewoods i have up there. had just gotten tired of the look, so revamped it and cleaned up the firewood of some initial dustings, etc of aging. plan to split the thicker chunks and move the rest to under cover... previously the rows were only 2/3 stix high... chunks mixed within, now separated out. a pix or two
