lol, our condo complex got propane to all the units awhile ago. when i remodeled i looked at the new building codes for effieciency fireplaces. I either had to get the wood buring efficiency and fill my deck with firewood, with everyone using a hand ax for kindling, then cleaning and dumping the ash, or go with a pellet fireplace -and fill my deck with pellets. I opted for the propane gas fireplace with a blower and thermostat! cost was $1400 but the electric bill went down to
$30 mo in winter, less in summer and propane is about same and i have a deck, and push button heat.

I'm happy with that.

Two words - Buckin Bundles!!

They just delivered and stacked a cord of wood at our condo.

They were well spoken, friendly, courteous, fast, and over $100 less than GC/Mammoth Firewood. I totally recommend them. :clap:

Guy down the street got a load, it was old fir wood that burns fast. I would say it should be $100 less for sure.

Time to get some of that hard wood from Tommy over in Crowley.

Thankyou fourmites to the referral to Buckin' Bundles. I got a nice, clean cord of unseasoned pine last night for $225.

I really enjoyed talking to Gary and his partner. He described how he was broke, trying to provide for the family . He and his buddy took their tax returns and bought a little timber sale and equipment. They built their business one cord at a time. By word of mouth their business increased, and they got a contract to provide the bundled wood to all the campgrounds.

Now through the internet their business is increasing.

Gary showed me that by hard work and conducting a fair business, a guy can make a success out of himself.

Those guys are right on the money and have a good attitude.

In Bishop it is not necessary to buy seasoned wood, because it will dry out within a month. Plus, it is good to use to slow down a hot fire. We start with the dry wood and then add the unseasoned pieces. Perfect!
