    I like that setup! Right next to the barn with the fire and the supply. How do you load the remnants of the grain bin after the door opening is covered?

    That didn't happen. Gave the stove to a buddy. Got a forced air wood furnace instead then changed my mind again and now I'm gonna put in a propane furnace. Lol.




    I still don't have any heat in the shop. :oops:

    20160304_164923-1.jpg I have a LOPI zero clearance insert. It works like a charm. Best stove I ever had. 25 years old though. I bought it new. Never skipped a beat. Very easy to maintain.

    I stack upas high as possible left of the door, then make one row to the right of the door. The row in line with the door is stacked like a staircase. Then it's easy to carry wood up and stack higher.
    I did that two years, now my wood is piled out of a belt conveyor and I bring a load or two over and stack it as I need it, bout a months worth at a time. Which keeps my stack low and easily accessible

    Your Lopi takes a 24" log? I worked my butt off this year finding 18" logs or just a hair less for a customer's Lopi. It drove me bonkers finding them.

    I put up with his demands. He bought seven truckloads and would not accept anything but oak, ash, locust, hard maple, or walnut. Even red elm and hackberry were unacceptable. Hard to believe, but I got through it and he is satisfied.

    Not the one in your reply. That takes 16.5" logs or up to 20" logs front to back.
    My bigger LOPI takes 24" logs.
    I burn anything I cut. Lol

    Mine aren't as picky but most don't want Hedge. I am that picky as I charge a bit more than many of my peers but that's based off the satisfaction of my clients. However, I do include Mulberry, Red Elm and Hackleberry. But I do ensure that it's well seasoned before I sell it.

    I could see having a Lopi or a Jotul eventually.

    Not sure why customers would not want Red Elm or Hackberry. I burn a lot of both and get along great. I feel the Elm is just as good as any of the other "favorite" hardwoods.

    I cut what I believe was an elm last year. I burned a few pieces and that stuff dried very hard and burns well.

    Elm burns like compressed cardboard IMO. I was not a big fan of it when I burn it, didn't get a lot of heat for the volume of wood and lots of ash. Idk, if it was all I had I'd burn it but it was crappy. About on the same page as soft maple from my experience.
