16. Fire wood from remnants
We had been looking for a way to have winter fires without paying a fortune for fire wood. We called around to find out about getting wood delivered and the price was a little more than we were ready to pay. So, we found an alternative. We found that a friend who did not have a fire place who had recently begun remodeling his basement. He offered us all of his untreated wood cuttings to use in our fire place. Between this wood and the tree cuttings from our own lot, we have acquired quite a bit of wood. We did not really look for very long. I imagine if we had begun our wood search earlier, we could have had enough to get us through the entire winter, for the cost of picking up the wood.
