Today I discuss the value of hauling home "free" fire wood and logs for our off grid homestead. Many people are asking me why I keep hauling logs instead of just buying them.A cord of fire wood measures 4ft by 4ft by 8 ft. When logs are cut at 16 inches long, this gives you three rows of logs at 4 ft high by 8 ft long. Each row is called a face cord. These terms vary based on where you live but the measurements are the same.Around here a face cord sells for $75 each on average. It costs us about 1-2 hours of work and $7 in gas and oil to haul a load to our homestead. One truck load, loosely tossed in, is about a face cord.I figure that even if two of us are working, that comes out to about $14 per hour, per person after costs when you consider our time.I make videos of my daily work so I am actually getting paid to haul this home. I make a little bit more each day than I spend on hauling home the wood, not counting time and labor, just the monetary costs. So I am ahead a bit already on hauling fire wood and logs home.Now consider that next year I can sell some of the fire wood and make $75 a cord, so I am way ahead.There has been a lot of discussion about where Chris is living. This is not for me to share. He is a grown man and he has his own home and his own life. He often helps out on the homestead and helps haul fire wood. When we sell things, we will split the profit.Thanks for watching.
