If you're like me you had plenty of projects to complete before snow flies. From getting the lawn mowed for the last time and all of the yard and garden implements stowed away, to laying in enough wood to last the winter.
I had all of the above to do as well as getting the camper and camping gear stored and out of the way along with stowing pontoon boats and such and all the stuff that goes with them. It was a busy fall.
Here are some during and after pics of the wood and storage projects mentioned above. Three years ago our furnace went out. Luckily we have a very efficient wood insert fireplace and we have been heating the entire house with wood for the past three winters. I can't go out and fell trees anymore, but we have a log home company a couple of miles away that has a pretty good deal on blocked wood, so we get about three cord and split it up and stack it for use during winter.
Plenty to do. I still get to spend a fair amount of time finishing a basement, but I'm already halfway there. Did you get all of your projects done?
The process of laying in a store of wood - that wood stack ends up being three log lengths deep:
Utilizing space in the garage to keep the wood out of the weather and pontoon storage - the small white door to the right of the wood is an access I built into the home where I can load wood into a cabinet and then access it from inside the home right next to the fireplace:
Everything buttoned up and ready for nasty weather:
Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow...
