Constructed During the Heat Wave

Our purty new firewood pile! Previously located in our once-shabby, now-dandy (aka renovated) screened porch, the firewood was temporarily moved to the yard, haphazardly rotting away in a messy heap, and quickly being inhabited by voles and chipmunks. 

After researching proper outdoor firewood storage, we used some extra picket fencing and hemlock stumps to build the base. (Elevating your firewood prevents water soaking in.) Then we made careful criss-cross stacks, which again encourages water drainage. We’ll likely cover it in the winter.

The left side is for freshly chopped wood, which needs to get more air so it can dry out. It’s also conveniently located next to our chopping block, which is another hemlock stump.
