I had to rebuild the wood rack. Originally, I conceived of it being twelve feet long by fifteen inches wide, running beneath the guest room window just out the back door on the deck. This was a solid plan and good fit, as this part of the deck is covered and easily accessible during wet winter weather. Problem being (as was brought to my attention by Walter the chimney sweep who came last month and said we ought to oil the flue), I had the wood butted right up near the house itself, which posed the potential problem of wood insects that are already in or attracted to the wood being in close proximity to the house…which is also made of wood. I had left a good six inches between the wood and the house, but I figured it best to follow Walter’s advice and move the whole thing entirely. So I shortened the rack by four feet down to eight so that it would fit, still covered and clear on both sides, at the other end of the deck near the garage. I then restacked the wood in its new position, taking the opportunity to split a few of the larger pieces of wood on the new stump I acquired.
