We Kept the Wood

When our giant but dead oak trees were taken down we kept the wood chips.

We also let them leave the rounds of wood in the yard.

The front yard is full of heavy oak rounds.

Charlie plans to use this oak as firewood.

Charlie is moving the smaller rounds first.

I know we will use some, some we will sell, and some we’ll just give away to the neighbors.

Our woodshed is fairly empty.

Charlie started moving the lumber closer to our wood shed and the wood splitter.

Charlie will be piling wood for a long time.

It’s a big job which will only increase when our last but largest tree is felled in a couple of weeks.

Happy Independence Day!

Do you have an outdoor firepit? Do you enjoy it?

Welcome to The Glade, where the second generation of renovations has just begun and the mania about our home, music and other passions fill our days and nights. We’re Charlie and Jo in the music world; Mary Jo and Charles to family; and JoJo and Charlie to each other. We are renovating a midcentury house in a Victorian historic district where we want to live there the rest of our lives. It's a 1946 house located in Maryland. We were married in this house. Thus far (pre-blog) we refinished cabinets, added a window seat (still working on the cushion), rearranged a wall in the guest house due to sink/vanity replacement, planted a vegetable garden, and other quick and not-so-quick fixes. So this latest zeal for construction is the result of my having lived here since 1997 and feeling a need to ready the house for the next chapter and beyond.
