    No kidding. That would keep a couple people busy year round. I am looking at my empty rack and know I have to get busy.

    Since it’s all pine-probably 500 cords or so.
    We heat the entire first floor-which heats most of the second floor just from the heat rising,and go through 4-5 cords a year.
    That’s keeping 2 woodburners going,1 small box type stove with the removable rings for cooking,and another med sized one with a glass door in the addition to the house where I hang out when home,and keep all my gear, hunting gear,fishing gear,etc.
    There’s been a few winters where we went through about 6 1/2-7 cords,that’s mixed hardwoods,not pine.
    Pine burns fast and doesn’t produce much heat.

    It was chilly even in the summer, but the real bitch must have been finding a helicopter for that pad in front in 1692.

    It’d probably surprise you how little a properly built castle might need.
    The layers of different stone would act as a heat stop and a room
    could actually hold a consistent temperature year round, much like a
    cave.

    The lord of the manor didn’t care…that’s why he had peasants.

If your comment 'disappears', don't trip - it went to my trash folder and I will restore it when I moderate.
