+1 to Ms.Bailie for not killin' him for all the pic's of her he posted!  I would be killed in a very graphic way if I did such a thing!   ;D 

Great wood shed guys!  That's what we had growing up.  We wrapped ours on 3 sides with fencing wire to keep the wood from falling out.  it worked great, and let air flow through the wood.

Post some pic's when it's all filled up!

That's great!

I worked at a wilderness camp that used a very similar method using pine from the Ocala National and the buildings lasted years. This should be a very solid building. Well done!

     My wife is awesome to say the least.  Her goal is to turn our property into a real homestead.

Hey my friend, I just thought of a video podcast I subscribe to that your wife might enjoy.  Tell her to look for "Becky's Homested" on iTunes.  Personally, I get a kick out of listening to Becky, and her voice and speech mannerisms grates on my nerves, BUT, I do enjoy seeing someone out there doing it.  So I'll give her that credit.

Tim.

Looks like she's feelin' the same "oh crap, somethin's comin'!" pressure the rest of us are feeling.  Good for her for taking action.  Your wife rocks.

It's hard to tell exactly, but I'd say around a dozen.

   Not sure how many trees it is. We got it from the slash piles around the corner from us, they just logged a couple hundred acres. We figure there is about 4 cords in it.
Still have another couple cords to stack in the "back up" pile. Hopefully it will get us through winter.

   We can get some nasty winters, we usually have a fire going 6 months of the year.
