Have the same problem here, but multiplied. Our woodburner is tiny, meaning we have to split the logs into fragments, which has the added problem of them burning much quicker. Need a stoker from the Titanic to keep our burner going.
How long does a cord of wood last you guys?
Now there's a question! I don't really know because we don't buy our wood - we chop it down ourselves. At the height of the winter, we use about 20kg per day - an IKEA-bag full. That's for cooking, heating the central core of the house using clay brick ovens (kind of storage heaters) various outlying wodburners, and bathwater.
Did you say bathwater?And from where do you chop it?You must be strong as an ox.
Hi Christine -- for your first two questions see: http://carminesuperiore.blogspot.com/2008/09/scaldabagno-legna.htmlOn the last point : the other day the chap who runs the swimming classes was offering discounted running club membership - I don't know if he understood the look of incomprehension on my face...
Chairman -- I hear ya! :-) Also, with ordinary woodburners, they only stay warm while they're burning, so going out for a brisk walk and returning to a cosy fire is just a foolish dream!
My poor girl. Are you feeling Cinderellaish?
Time to import a few bags of welsh (not Chinese) anthracite, it burns for ages without smoke.
