Wood Storage

As you may recall from our long ago post, we have a good deal of firewood (mainly Modesto Ash).  Previously, meaning for the last year and four months, this wood was piled up on the side of our house, covered with a ratty old plastic tarp.

Mrs. House decreed that this needed to change, and further, we are planning to put in more berry planters in the location where it is currently sitting (as well as some sprinkler plumbing).  You will also note that the place it is sitting is pretty low, so the rain puddles and gets the bottom stack of wood wet.  So a project was born!

Never one to do things the easy way, we enlisted my dad for some help, and built a wood cradle to store all the cut wood.  We used wood left over from the demolished old storage closets, and a new redwood 2x4 for the horizontals.  As is typical for our carpentry projects, this is way overbuilt, and could probably hold 10 times the wood it has space for.  Sorry that there are no WIP pictures, but really, there is not much to this.

Still covered by the same ratty old tarp, but much nicer looking!

In other house news, still slowly working on installing baseboard.
