We needed more firewood for the our homes in the South of France, the Bergerie and the Mas. Niko and Robin live in a renovated sheep barn called the Bergerie and we live in a 300 year old house, the Mas. Both houses are on the same property.
Niko and Robin put in a serious wood-burning fireplace last year that also heats their house. It was necessary when one winter, the temperature dropped to 32 degrees inside and it was warmer outside than inside.
In the Mas, we have a large fireplace and were completely out of wood (not shown). Niko ordered 25 cords of wood (4 feet high and 8 feet long), in French it is called a stere (120 m3) so that he would have dry wood next year and useable wood this year. I wanted to show you how it was delivered.
Its great to have wood again and a fire in the fireplace even if it is a bit smokey.
