Holz Hausen Wood Pile in Snow

We had our first winter storm of the year yesterday.  The snow gave me a chance to take pictures of my Holz Hausen wood pile in snow.

It was early in the storm when I took this picture. The three inches on top of the Holz Hausen Wood pile grew to about 8 inches.

I enjoy pictures of split wood neatly stacked and ready to go.

You can see the curve to the side of the Holz Hausen Wood Pile in the background. I don’t recommend building your sides that steep. Slightly more angle toward the center results in a more stable wood pile.

Thanks for visiting.

Holz Hausen Wood Pile Results

The past couple months I’ve been building my second holz hausen wood pile.  I built this one 10′ in diameter.  Actually, the holz hausen wood pile ended up about 11′ in diameter.

The blurry wood to the right is my first holz hausen wood pile. The pile in the distance is my second wood pile.

I made a tunnel between the two holz hausen wood piles.  First, I placed two pieces of chainsaw milled lumber across the two piles.  I made sure they were level and stable and over my head.

I covered the planks with the bark covered waste from chainsaw milling.

The tunnel adds style to my holz hausen wood piles.

I thought I was building my holz hausen wood piles for firewood to burn this year.  After seeing the results I’ll be keeping the two piles up as long as I can before I burn them.

They’re too pretty to burn.
