It has been quite cold around here for the past week, so I decided to build a fire in the RS. I went to my sons house and got two wheelbarrows full of some old wood he had that was cut for use in a wood burning stove or a fireplace. Wood you burn in a RS is cut smaller in diameter and longer in length than for a open fireplace, so I split them down to about 3 inches, the pieces he had are about 16 inches long, more like what you would use in a wood burning stove. In our RS, which is the one you see in the drawing on our home page, you can see that much longer pieces of wood could be used. If you have them, old 2/4's work good, cut up to about 4 feet long. When I use two by fours it takes about 32 feet of studs to fill it up, and that makes a wonderful fire, but for now we are just using this old stuff.
