My parents would use their indoor fireplace a lot during the winter to try and save on heat costs. Every fall, we would get a truckload of firewood which we would split to the appropriate size and then stack against our back fence. After about three seasons of this, we started to notice our back fence tilting from the weight of the fire wood! We just needed to reinforce the fence and stack the wood so it wasn’t leaning on the fence, but now there are some nice firewood racks which you can get.
If you have a wood burning fire pit or fireplace, this might be a good investment. They range in size, and many of them are adjustable. Some even come with covers to keep the fire wood dry during the winter and spring. All are made out of durable steel, making it ideal for outdoor conditions and log weight.
Many are designed to keep the logs elevated off the ground as well. This again improves the drying process of the logs, ensuring their flammability when you need them. It is also good for your lawn—where you may have a bear dirt spot from stacking logs, a log rack will keep your lawn green and growing.
Another nice accessory is a log carrier. Most made out of hearty canvas, this is a convenient way to carry logs into your home or even to your campsite. It keeps all the dirt and wood chips inside, so that your house stays cleaner, and the flexible handles make carrying one, two, or five logs simple.
So, if you have a wood burning fire pit or fireplace, these are some nice accessories to make the experience even more enjoyable.
