How We Heat With ONLY a Wood Stove for FREE | Harvesting a Year’s Worth of Fire Wood
When you’re completely dependent on the wood stove as your heat source, your work starts a lot sooner to be prepared for winter. In some instances, we’re even planning a full year or more in advance.

Though we do have an electric forced air system in our home, we haven’t relied on this method of heating for 14+ years, only burning what we can harvest from our own property. This means our heating has been 100% FREE for more than a decade.

Follow along on our journey of how we source our wood from our own property, as well as how we manage this “crop” to keep it sustainable year after year.

Thanks for watching, do you use wood heat or plan on transitioning to it? I confess, I find the crackle of the fire quite relaxing.

Have you thought about a wood cart to move the wood to your porch? As hard as you work, multiple trips back and forth is kind of a waste of energy and time. Just a suggestion…..I use one and it is hugely helpful

Is this the only woodstove in your house and how big is your house? I hesitate to believe that this stove is enough to heat your house…

This is an awesome idea to share with our customers. We sell land mostly located in remote areas; near the mountains and forests.
