It practically covered our entire 3rd side of the driveway and took us a week to get moved and stacked in the backyard. It has diminished down to this much. I'd estimate we used about 70% of what was there.
Tom built a wood rack, and slowly (when the fence is done, and now that it has cooled off) Peter will continue splitting and stacking what is left here:
We are seriously considering having an wood burning insert installed. The clay lining is original to the house, the fireplace smokes, and I'd like more of a reassurance that sparks will be contained than this screen can provide.
Don't get me started on the fireplace. We "thought" we wanted one. And we still do. We just disagree on what it should look like. Tom likes the broken in, folksy look. I, well, I'm not all that thrilled by this huge wall of brick. But, life has far more important issues to contend with. For now, I'll just be happy to have the mess made a bit more orderly.
