Just two months ago I moved into my new homestead. There's been many challenges already but one of the most pressing has been trying to heat the home. In this video I go over one of my almost daily chores which is used to provide warmth for the whole house.
I end up going though roughly 6 of these a day if not more depending on how cold it is outside. Currently this system of heat is working out pretty well in warming the house but fingers crossed it continues to hold up during those very cold winter days when snow begins falling.
In the video before this I showed the wood piles I currently have to work with. At the moment this is on a three year cycle where the wood I'll be using this year to chop and heat the home is located under a overhang while the other two I tarpped to keep water and snow off of it. This is the seasoning process of the firewood to help dry it out over time which produces a better fuel for the stove.
The wood stove heating solution is gone over a little bit in this video however I'll be doing a much more indepeth review of the idea behind the wood stove and furnace later as it's rather crazy lol
Since recording this video I've learned a lot more about chopping firewood such as hitting the wood flat instead of on a angle which has done wonders with splitting the wood on the first strike. The maul still isn't here but when I get it I plan on doing a side by side comparison between the axe and the maul for splitting firewood.
