The third stack of firewood is almost done…

IMG0928AI have moved all the precut wood that I am going to move. The rest is so bad that it is crumbling to dust, thus I will let it finish tuning to dust…

Next I start stacking the wood that I am going to cut, then I will start a fourth stack on the back fence line of fresh cut wood. It will season for a year and next winter will be perfect for burning…

I have enough old wood that needs to be cut up to fill in the last gap on the third stack of wood. Then it is fresh stuff to the back fence…

IMG0930AI am also stacking planks that are still good and will save them to rebuild the back lean-to on the house. I have to first remove everything from the back of the house and then start over again, after I have sprayed for termites…

The image is the last major war zone I have to deal with on this home. It also is the biggest battle to win. The back wall is weak, it has had tons of boards laying against it for years. The boards are rotted and then today I found that someone had piled a huge mound of sawdust against the back wall. Wet, moldy and rotted sawdust… 🙁

What can be used will be saved and stacked under covers and what can be used for firewood will be cut and what is crumbling to dust will be dug up and hauled off. There is much more bad than good…

That is my blue barrel in the image that I will fill with wood chips in a few minutes. Then I have to find what I will do with that barrel to keep it dry and usable…

Once I have removed the back lean-to, I will assess the wall and repair as necessary the strength of the wall. I then will rebuild the lean-to, but will not attach it to the wall. It will be a freestanding structure and I may even move it to the back fence line and leave a walkway between the home and the lean-to. This use to be a chicken coop and a storage building all together. The chicken coop will be rebuilt separately and I plan on having chickens next year…

The good thing is that the wall is still straight and fixable…

Have a nice day and come back tomorrow…
