Winter only hits here at the end of June / beginning of July and lasts until round about September.
But, even though I prefer winter, I have
But with those memories, I am still trying to convince RMan that a Nordica stove, specifically a Nordica Sovrana or Nordica Mamy, will solve all our smoky heating / cooking problems this coming winter.
Judging from the specs, the Sovrana should be able to heat our +/- 200mtr3 double volume kitchen / lounge / dining / mezzanine area's.

But, whether we stick with the Dover stove or go for a larnier model, we have to get our firewood in, and allow it to dry before we use it. So RMan and I went to the local woodcutters a couple of weeks ago to collect next year's wood.
|The WFW (Working for Water) guys do a|
wonderful job of cutting down the alien
invasive Australian Black Wattles. I
wouldn't say they making any headway in eradicating
them because when they chop them down, they
don't kill off the stump so it just grows from the bottom
again. If they kill off the stump they will eventually
have no wattles to fell = no work. They're clever LOL
|Thank goodness for our trailer.|
I feel warmer just knowing that we have
next year's firewood on hand

the pile. The new wood, on the right, needs
to dry for a year so that it doesn't
layer our chimney with resin - potentially
causing a fire in the future.
