Log Splitters for Firewood

How do you split your firewood?

Readers of this blog might recall that we heat our log home with a wood stove. Over the years we’ve published numerous posts talking about all things related to using firewood to heat a home. A couple examples include:

Masonry Heaters, Cookstoves, Wood Fired Ovens and Outdoor Kitchens

The great outdoors & comfy indoors!

We spend a lot of time talking about log homes, wood, corner styles, building challenges and virtually everything associated with the process of building a log home or log cabin. I will admit that we don’t talk enough about other things that can make our home unique or more […]

Is Firewood Art?

If you’re going to stack it, stack it good!

Long time followers of this blog will recall that our family heats our log home with a woodstove. We have been doing this for the past 8-9 years and love everything about wood heat. And you know the old saying, “when you heat with firewood, […]

First fire in the woodstove

In my last post I talked about getting ready for winter, and one of those annual log home chores is bringing in enough firewood to last through spring. Well, my bride is now happy that I can remove that project from my ‘honey-do’ list. The weather (and other commitments) cooperated […]

Football, Firewood and Log Home Fire Prevention

I’ve already seen my team, the Pittsburgh ‘Stillers’, play two regular season games and their performance is telling me this could be a long painful season.
