Josée…thanks. Good eye for detail in regards to face cord. I was a bit panicked when folks were quoting 15-20 cords🤦*♀️ I missed that. Thanks for sharing the groovy yurt experience of another

I'm thinking one full cord a month won't heat a small log cabin in the 'pre climate change' Canadian north. If the

heating

season is seven months that's approximately two full cords a month, or one cord every two weeks, or a half cord a week. It might be face cords, but my guess is no.

I've read it would take a month for a man to cut and split a winters worth of firewood up north. Taking that literally, and based on 15 cords, that would be cutting and splitting a 4x4x8 full cord every couple days. I do know something about labor having carpentered since 1973, and still working right now in fact. That amount of work every couple days is reasonable.

10 cords of rounds the right length for your fire box

1 cord split

Lots of bucked but not sized logs

I person who splits their wood warms themselves twice. You'd be surprised how much heat you don't need from your stove when you're doing your splitting mid-winter. Leave the snow on your roof, too.

Cut it, load it in truck, unload it, split it, stack it, fire the stove. Lots of work. But work is VERY good for your health.

My wife and I cut two truckloads yesterday. I LOVE chainsawing wood, and splitting it with a gas splitter. Very satisfying work.
