Stacking wood in Europe

Post  jimmy cee on 6/19/2018, 10:05 am

This is called the Holzhausen method....https://afarmgirlinthemaking.com/2014/09/the-holzhausen-a-european-method-for-stacking-wood/
A family member recently came across this style of wood stacking, Quite interesting, as it will never topple over or come apart. Relatively simple to do we now have completed 2 of them.

Stacking wood in Europe

Post  ispinwool on 6/19/2018, 11:27 am

those are BEAUTIFUL!  
do you heat with wood?
we have a woodburner on our porch--we love watching the flames
(and toasting our buns!)

(for those of you that are interested and buy Netflix...look for
"Slow TV" there's shows on wood cutting/stacking/burning,
a train ride AND, my fav, spinning and knitting! Relaxing TV
instead of all the gore on regular tv nowadays)

Hello ispinwool, no wood is not our primary heating source, however it certainly makes things much more comfortable as winter cold sets in. A wood burning insert sits in our family room sending it's warmth through out the house. Thanks for your tip on Netflix, I will check it out.

Jimmy, thanks for sharing. What are the dimensions of your structures? I would think that shorter would be easier to fetch the wood.

That I cannot tell you because I simply do not know. My son is 6ft 4 and to finish he tossed some up.
It's an amazing piece and thats why I had to show it here. There better not be a sink hole close by.

Well, then you would have a fire pit. Wink
