Following on from getting the wood burner installed, I've been hunting around for a reasonably priced supply of logs that'll see us through the winter. All the advice says hardwood is better than soft, so when I found a guy on eBay that was prepared to deliver a tipper truck-load of hardwood logs for a very good price, I practically bit his hand off.
Imminent delivery of logs = slight problem. I needed somewhere to put them, in the form of a breathable log store.
Fortunately, I've had a stack of pallets hanging around in the back yard for a while now. They were originally destined for some more fencing down at the allotment, but needs must and all that. So now, 7 pallets have been turned into a log store. It did cost a little bit of money to buy some sheeting and roofing felt to put a waterproof roof on it, but I consider that money well spent for what we've ended up with.
Barrowing who knows how many loads of logs from the front of the house to the back, while housemate stacked them into the log store isn't my idea of fun at the best of times, less still in the dark. It was one of those rarest of rare occasions when I was grateful for the very bright street light that sits just outside the back gate. At least I could see what I was doing!
It was, however, too dark to take photos and besides, I was far too tired to hunt for the camera. Photos tomorrow, weather permitting, as I do recall rain is forecast for Tuesday.
Until next time. x
