Home made firewood enclosure part 1

cedar post haulingI was working on a small structure to protect the firewood today. Stage 1 is to obtain 4 really long posts to work as the frame. It will be like a mini pole barn without the walls.

Reducing our nearby cedar tree population has been on the list of things to do for a while due to the fungal disease known as cedar apple rust.

It's always especially sweet when you can get 2 things marked off the list with just one task, although we still have several more cedars that need to come down.

Read all of the entries about our Firewood Shed Building Project.  The project took a couple of afternoons and cost about $5.
