ChrysanthemumAt this time please note that I require payment in cash,  also that I am not very knowledgeable when it comes to web sites so please ignore the “comments” section below as I don’t know how to use it.

The wait time for getting your wood is usually not more than a couple of days.

Prices are for face cords  –  meaning that in the old days the pieces of wood were  suppose to be 2 feet long.  These days the majority of fireplaces cannot fit a 2 ft piece of wood in them.  Therefore the pieces of firewood that I sell are (roughly) 18 inches instead of the old standard which was 24 inches.

Tip on starting your fire.
1.  There’s a reason they use the word “build” a fire.  What works best is to use small pieces (never ones that are round) that have sharp or jagged edges to them.  Use many of these type of pieces and try to lay them so they are always crossing one another and never put them all facing the same direction such as you’d find in a box of toothpicks.  You want the exact opposite:   total chaos instead of order.

Once you have the fire going … you can then add the bigger pieces.  Round pieces are best used once the fire is going strong.  Even the most seasoned of round pieces can sometimes be resistant to your cause.

For overnight burning remember that knots burn longer than the other pieces so for that last log on the fire before bed … grab a particularly knotty looking piece.  It will likely be of some fair size anyway which will suit your purpose perfectly.

Getting smoke coming back into your house?
If this happens only on occasion then your problem is likely that the exhaust route needs to be warmed up in order to cause a good updraft.  Accomplish this easily simply by making sure that you start your fire big.  In other words use lots of smaller pieces so that the entire contents of your fireplace catch on fire and produce a lot of heat.  Using pieces which are big around in girth would be a bad idea.
