Imported kiln dry logs ?

Recommended Posts

Agreed. Buying firewood is a luxury, like having your garden landscaped.

Another thread maybe, buts its a total false economy to tell customers that installing a stove will save them money on their heating. ( unless the fuel is free )

It's a craze that I hope continues...only for personal gain

 

I think that depends on the cost of firewood. Around here where a lot of people just have a log burner and an oil or gas rayburn it can be cheaper to use wood when the oil price is high.

It might be a British thing. But maybe because British housing developers insist on squeezing as many homes as possible into any area. I'm pretty lucky and have space for log stores but my house is 20 years old. Homes built 10 years ago can't park 2 cars on the drive. Visiting any of these estates after 6pm is a pain in the arse. Not much chance of these households surrendering 3m2 of driveway. And they've probably got a garden the size of a ping pong table!

True but how many of these new builds even have a chimney?!

Plenty of stove fitters round our way are building inglenooks on the outside wall and knocking through then using a double lined flue up the external wall! Looks good and takes up no extra space in the house.

My house had no chimney. We had an external flue fitted in 2010

There's a few new builds going up round here with 'fake' stacks and chimneys fitted....

 

You can't even bring them into use, as there's usually part of a room under that brickwork...

 

Bizarre why they did it....

 

Maybe to give plain, featureless matchbox house the look of a 'traditional house' complete with chimney???

They're not kiln dried but a friend I met at uni who is visiting his home country of Poland just posted this picture!

That's a lot of timber! Wonder where it's all off to!?

To put it into perspective to heat our house with bought in processed dry wood would cost about £1,500 to £2,000. The equivalent oil would have been under £500 if you got your timing right in summer. It's only a matter of time when the result of the wood burner boom of a few years back is that people realise they cost them more money burning wood sorry to say.
