Looks good but I have yet to see many logs like that in your average log delivery

I would dread to think what that would look like with what I have :)

 

We have a nice traditional feel with one of these

Agree there Scraggs.

My knotty, gnarly arb waste logs would look slightly different!

Does look nice, mind.

Round off them corners if you get one Mark.

 

Last Stella of the night downed, reaches over to load the stove before retiring and stumbles onto a corner.

The house is pretty draughty anyway, probably why we burn so much wood. I draught proofed the outer door but its not insulated.

 

If I was building from scratch I'd have the store designed around one of those tall supermarket trolleys that the shelf stackers use, You could have a few of them loaded up and then just wheel it into the store when needed.

 

Thats exactly what I have planned, but going to make the trolleys.

Slight complication is that the house is upside down so have built a trapdoor into the floor and going to winch the trolleys up - massive double glulam beam directly above the trapdoor :thumbup1:

In fact some of the dimmensions and bits of the layout of the house have been dictated by the wood handling requirements :lol:

Yes I am a bit anal, but also hard won experience growing up in the sticks off grid and it being my chore to get the fire wood in manually.

Our stove does the hot water and heating, but as we are super insulated we only use at most a couple of small builders buckets a day in the depths of winter to keep the thermal store up to temp so should be able to get at least a months worth in in a couple of hours.

Sticking with the labour saving theme the 'trolleys' will be wheelless frames so that I can stack the fresh cut logs directly into them and stack them under cover to season. Come time to use them I will have a few wheeled frames which will slide in under the frames to wheel the logs indoors. This system eliminates multiple handling of the logs and will be a blessing when I am no longer fit enough to it manually - just need the time to execute the plans now :001_rolleyes:

 

PS currently looking for a good hand winch to lift the trolleys upstairs - any suggestions? Plan is to fix it temporarily or permanently to a big 13"x13" pitch pine post supporting the afore mentioned glulams. Not sure what the trolleys will weigh fully stacked, but will definitely be less than 200kg to give an idea of SWL

 

Sorry about the hijack Mark

Used to use an old laundry basket that had seen better days. We now have a big chunky oblong wicker basket that caught mrs oldwoodcutters eye when she was last in the stove shop.

Cost i believe,was about the same as a small s/h hatchback.
