Considering only a cordwood
alternative, much like the whole logs that made up a small part of the Wisconsin pellet furnish, resulted in a 74 percent reduction in emissions displacing NG and a C:C displacement ratio of 0.49 (Alt 10, Figs.
"Without it, the cordwood
will absorb moisture from the mortar, and it will dry out too fast to cure properly."
We built post and beam construction, with various infills, including cordwood
. We mixed perlite in with the mortar, and infilled between inside and outside mortar "beads" with perlite as we stacked, because it doesn't burn (our cord walls are on both sides of the wood stove).
In winter 2007, the Friends of the Merrill School Forest (an organization in Madison, Wis., that supports the school district's forest) along with the Evjue Foundation, the charitable arm of the Capital Times in Madison, Wis., decided to use cordwood
construction to build an education center on the school's 764-acre woodland site in Merrill, Wis.
Be prepared to remove ashes from your stove daily if it is a cordwood
During the same time, the circular saw was also adapted to the task of cutting cordwood
The opportunity to use these trees in cordwood
construction, along with post and beam, means a huge savings to us.
Early American cordwood
cutters discovered that firewood was easier to sell if pieces were short enough to fit into stoves, so the 4-foot lengths were often halved for a price, but the cord remained a 4-by-4-by-8-foot stack.
It became a charnel house where dying and dead bodies by the hundreds were stacked up like cordwood
along the corridors, in storage closets, wherever.
This group asked us to be the consultants, cordwood
masonry instructors, and coordinators of the project.
We then took more than 40 logs from our property for cordwood
construction and framework.
