Our First Wood Stove

It's getting cold here, cold enough to freeze our water at night, and we have only had a small electric heater until now. Last week George and Leslie gave us the perfect little wood stove to heat our cabin. While in Fairbanks we stopped by DNR to get a firewood cutting permit and found an even better deal. A guy that worked there had a bunch of trees on his property that he cut down last summer and needed to get rid of them. How perfect...free wood and doing someone a favor!

We ended up with mostly aspen, but a good amount of birch and spruce too.Split and stacked, ready to burn.
Isn't it so cute?!?! We had our first fire last night and went to bed toasty warm.
Our front yard right now.

The backyard.

It looked like the front yard about a week and a half ago, but I never got any pictures.
