..more wood stacked. Money in the bank $$!
We tried something different for stacking wood this time and cleared an area in prep of levelling off the area and create some more shade. Our place is hot in the summer and with no shade in the front of the house we are looking to create a level and relaxing place IN THE SHADE. I wish we had thought of this earlier!
..start with something covering the grass/gravel to prevent grass and weeds growing..We put a middle support and attached a string ( to measure the circle )so we would have a consistent circle which we could taper as we got higher in the hausen.
..and several tractor loads later..done. Needs to be covered but it ( theoretically ) should shed moisture well ( once covered ). This one hausen is about 1.5 cord of wood. We did 2 haausen with some leftoever stacked on the side and it is ( by our guestimates ) 4 cord in total.
…and the start of the levelling process..once we remove the remaining railway ties we should be able to begin creating a shaded area near the house. We do need to remove a tree or 21 to optimise the shadenicity. Yes, I made that up.
