The rough estimate I did says it's just under half a cord. A great deal at 50 dollars when you throw in delivery and stacking. What makes it even better is the guy offered to cut the next round to whatever size we need, which will be nice for our tiny Jotul 602 woodstoves.

I've learned to put Lucy in a "timeout" while I do short jobs like this during her walk,. If I don't she sometimes gets distracted and shoots off into the woods dragging her leash.
