I have usually burned about 20 face cord every year for the last 5 years. This year I put a wall up in the shop to cut down the square footage. I also installed a magic heat in the flue. I have about 15 dry cord of oak and ash stacked just outside the door and am staying in a nice 80 degree shop. The house is warmed by forced air and boiler heat so we keep that about 68 degrees. I practically live in my shop with all the comforts of home, just ask my wife or family.
