Re: Logs

Wood is rarely sold by weight as the weight will vary dramatically depending on the species (hard or soft wood) of the logs in the pile and how dry they are. So it's best to buy by volume.
If you are tempted to buy logs by weight or by the lorry load, beware as it could result in you having a load of poorly seasoned wood due excess water content.
You should only ever burn seasoned wood (especially in wood burners) that with a moisture content of below 20% helping to prevent a build of tar and creosote in your chimney or flue.

Its sold by weight in our area and short term visitors can just turn up and buy by the sack full each of which is weighed a couple of which should last a week assuming you don'y have on during the day

Re: Logs

Wood is certainly sold by weight here. Hussein at the Dalyan wood yard in Arikbasi will sell you soft wood or hard wood by the sackload or any weight you want - half ton, ton etc.
His prices this year are 350Tl for a ton of pine or 400TL hardwood delivered.
The price of a sack, or multiple sacks will be determined again by weight.

This is our 9th winter living here and he has never let us down either with quality, correct weights and delivery times.

I love my real fire.
Soft wood to get it going and the hard wood to burn longer.

Re: Logs

As bigalant mentions, a couple of sacks of softwood logs and a couple of sacks of hardwood should be fine for a week. Get the fire going with the softwood then pop a few hardwood logs on there to burn for the night.

When we were staying in our villa over the Christmas holidays a few years ago, if was nice during the day but as soon as the sun dropped behind the mountains it was bone-chillingly cold.

I'd get the fire started at around 3:30 and by 5:00 it was warning the whole villa.

I'm wishing I was going now and I still have a few bags of logs in the depot too :-(

Enjoy your stay.

Re: Logs

I am out on Friday and I'll be doing just that.
Nice cosy log fire after sun goes down.
Not sure how cool it is at night but love the effect .
I have fitted a wood burner and it's a bit of magic .xx
