Wood Pile = Art

The art of keeping warm in winter on these islands involves good insulation, and wood piles.  My neighbours like to say that heating your house with wood keeps you warm three ways: first, cutting the wood, then stacking it, and finally transporting it to the fireplace or woodstove…

Simply stacking wood is an art in itself. Take a look.

And then, after you got all warm lugging the wood around, it warms you yet again, by the fireplace…
