Sounds goofy, but I do miss getting out in the woods, firing up the Husky, spending a day or so out in the forest. Wood, you get warm three times... cutting & loading, splitting & stacking, and then burning!

We have a woodburning fireplace that is intended to be mostly decorative. It isn't the kind that will heat half your house. Anyway, we always stockpile wood because the trend seems to be that we spend atleast a week of our winter with no electricity (I live in Joplin) due to ice storms. We NEVER pay for wood. So far, someone has always been willing to give it away if my husband and brother in law will cut and haul it. Free heat is great! However, we are natives and have lots of family our in the Cassville/Shell Knob/Monett area who own large amounts of land for farming.

Can't recall exact price, but was not inexpensive... maybe ~$800-1,000 or so? Will check when get back home, am traveling right now [in beautiful eastern foothills of the Smokies ]. That, plus whatever else ya may need - fire poker rod, flue/vent/chimney, cleaning supplies, spark mat, chainsaw [if necessary], and you should be all good. lol, thinking back on when did burn wood in this, I'd get the front area so blazing hot, would be almost unbearable to be in that part, but would be jussssssssst right in the back area then... [was single story, the fire in living room in front, then kitchen/dining, hallway, bathroom, and then bedrooms and study towards the back]

ps: don't forget to check your insurance homeowners policy - some have varied/stricter rules &/or requirements regarding wood burning devices in/around the home. All mine had was need for a non-flammable mat [mine was metal] covering so many square feet in front of the wood burner.

I am looking for seasoned slab wood in the springfield area. You have any suggestions? I too come from mn back in 1979. I used to live in the tamarack area.
Hope to hear back.

Shadow,
Any time you get the itch to fire up that Husky let me know. I will let you cut all the wood you want off my place. I will even match your Husky with my pair, I have a 141 and a 455 Rancher. Great saws for the price.
