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 :)

My stove takes 21/22 inch splits depends if you put them in north to south or east to west ,Drolet 2000.
I've also got the Drolet HT2000.
It's a good stove and I like that it can take a 22" long split.
It really throws the heat and can easily heat my 2400sq ft two story house.

It's cleaned up! Most of the wood was pretty solid, good for kindling.

Ice is still 20 centrimetres thick, though we're already in the middle of the mud season and outside temperature is around 10 C.

I wish I would have known more about fireplaces and wood burners when I built my house, I'd done things differently.
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.

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

Yes Oak is a great burning wood, but you have to season it for years first.
I had a few cords of Red that sizzled after 2 years seasoned. Burned better the next year.

The half round of ash is my son's step so he can run the splitter for me. The rounds weigh about twice as much as an ash round of the same size. The wood is light colored with the flecking of sugar maple. Plus it has the bark and branches of sugar maple. So.....
