Nice load of wood, Peter! We used a wood heater in our place till this year, when we finally gave in & got a reverse cycle split system aircond. Wood is a bit expensive here in Perth, but I used to get a couple of loads to get us through the winter, along with enough for the start of the next. Splitting it & lugging it in got a bit "old" when my left knee started to "give up the ghost". I eventually got a "pretend knee" fitted, & that helped, but it still aches a bit, so I was happy to give up on the wood splitting & carrying. The wood fire definitely puts out more heat, but the aircond does well enough, plus it keeps us cool in the Summer, too. Unfortunately, my "hamshack" is in the "closed in patio" ----freezing in Winter, & an oven in Summer. I have to share it with the dogs, too. They always think I come out there to fuss over them, making it hard to operate with a dog trying to spit all over my ear! Hell, this posting even sounds like an 80m monolgue!
