You haul, you save! If you have a mini-van, pick up truck or even a bigger size car, you can buy a quarter or eighth of a cord at a time and be able to haul it home at substantial savings prices. *Please note you will need to load your own vehicle. 10/27/13 – I currently have only Oak firewood remaining for sale. Also a limited amount of Hickory or Wild Cherry.
Here you can view the wood you’re going to be burning, before you are obligated to purchase. No more getting stuck with whatever they brought you, having to wait for them to show up etc.
How to start a fire with the least hassle. A little common sense goes a long way when starting a fire. Use pieces of wood that are most likely to catch fire the easiest. This would be the pieces which look the oldest. Very importantly to choose pieces which have jagged edges. Split pieces which are thinnest work well. Think small to large. Start your fire with small stuff, kindling is best. Then add your split pieces with the jagged edges. The ones you would most likely get a splinter from. Don’t use pieces which haven’t been split. Then when your fire is going good and you’d rather see your wood not burn up so quickly, look for the pieces which haven’t been split. Also now is a good time to add the bigger pieces which are split, but still big. You’ll find all the types of pieces I have mentioned in what I sell.
Explanation of a face cord.The face cord came about when fireplaces stopped being able to hold a piece of firewood which is 2 feet in length. It isn’t much extra trouble to cut a piece of firewood an extra 4 to 6 inches but of course it is when it involves having to cut a complete extra piece of firewood to make up for the lost space when firewood is cut at lengths less than 2 feet. A true cord of firewood is 2 rows of firewood that are cut in lengths of 2 feet, stacked 4 feet tall and 8 feet long. A face cord is also 2 rows of firewood that are 4 feet tall and 8 feet long, but the length of pieces are not a complete 2 feet in length, they are less.
Make it easy for yourself when hauling a 1/4 cord in your mini-van by remembering to bring some cardboard to line your van sides with. The sides are the part that will be your biggest worry, because the wood will be stacked up against them. cardboard will protect the vehicle and cleans up easy when your done. (Its tough to hold a blanket up on the sides while trying to stack wood in at the same time. Cardboard will make it much easier.
Please note I live where the wood is sold, so if I am here I am more than happy to serve you. That said: please call ahead so to assure I am here and that I will have your order ready for you. You are not in any way obligated to purchase, but I do need to know so I can get the amount stacked up as it must be measured before sale.
