Firewood storage at home (of course, not a very big one) usually arises just positive emotions from a visual point of view. It doesn't matter, how we decide to store logs, it doesn't damage a common image, usually even on the contrary – it provides coziness and naturalness.
Advantages as well as disadvantages can be noticed from a practical point of view. One of the advantages is that it is very convenient to kindle the fire when logs are lying in some meters or centimeters distance, but in a sense of cleaning, there will definitely be more work with logs (if you keep them on the ground or niches).
What do you definitely have to know about keeping logs? Simply the fact that you constantly have to ventilate a room. The most important is to prepare and dry logs in an appropriate way, but it is already a separate study... For you, my dears, I have prepared even 20 ideas, which should persuade you that a very small woodshed at home will cheer up not only you, but also your guests. There‘s still some time until cold, so you can slowly prepare for a heating season! Well, and now some history about the positive features of the logs themselves. Information source.
Logs – a gathered Sun‘s energy. As soon as they appear at home, their microclimate improves. Birch log ring, which provides a very fresh smell and is put next to a fireplace, affects respiratory tract in a very positive way and protects from respiratory path diseases. Fir and pine logs provide a refreshing odor of a torrid noon and resin. These odors give a life a new harmony and communication warmth. An acrid odor of oak logs fill a house with an atmosphere of an oak grove, strengthen children‘s health and help to heal elderly‘s disabilities.
Those who are stoking firewoods for heating enjoy the healthiest warmth. Humanity uses this, the oldest and the most natural fuel from the ancient ages. Moreover, logs – an ecologically balanced fuel: while logs are burning, the whole amount of carbon dioxide which was absorbed in a whole tree‘s life is emitted. Do you know that the emission of a carbon dioxide is the same either you burn a tree or you leave it to rot it in a forest. It means that while using logs we are environmentally friendly and do the least harm to nature.
There‘re so little wood combustion products (ash) left in a furnace that you don‘t need to clean them for several days or a week – it depends on how often and intensively logs are burned. Moreover, logs – a source for valuable mineral materials and they can be used for fertilizing gardens and in-room plants. Logs, in comparison to gas or oil products, have many more advantages. When a liquid or gas sort fuel production is unstable, logs are a fuel sort which is received in an easiest way. Wood – a raw material which is received while using minimal energy input, it doesn't need a special recycling and further transportation. It is recommended to use local wood which is got in forests which are constantly replanted.
