I had never intended to store the wood on the porches like this, and when I thought of it, I didn't want to do it until the architect had a chance to take pictures. So when I bought a rick last month, I finally applied the method. The recent snow has proven that it doesn't stay quite as dry as I'd hoped, but it's better than under the sky in the Future Carport.
I haven't managed to stack it as tightly as the man I bought it from did, but it fits pretty well.
I love the patterns cut wood makes as much as I love the flames. (Visually, that is. I love the heat more than either. All about the comfort, I am.)
