For the fireplace owner, a wood rack is pretty much a must have. A smaller one for the inside of the home and a larger one for the outdoor woodpile are smart ideas for wood storage. The main reason for this is cleanliness.

Wood Racks: Keeping out the Unwanted

Let's face it ... wood can get pretty dirty. An indoor wood rack will allow you to keep wood off the floor or carpet inside your home. The rack will also make wood storage a lot easier. Unless you buy the prepackaged fireplace logs they sell at grocery stores, wood doesn't come in nice, neat shapes that are easy for stacking. Wood rolls and falls all over the place. A rack will prevent that dirty wood from rolling all over your nice, clean carpet.

Outdoor wood racks are even more important, but are seldom used. Besides dirt, another problem with woodpiles is the fact that they attract critters. How many times have you brought in ant covered wood? Ants aren't the only things which like to hide in wood. A wood rack for the outdoors keeps the wood off the ground, making it more difficult for land based insects and critters from getting into your home.

Rack Them Up!

Wood racks are just a smart idea when it comes to owning and using a fireplace. They keep things clean, convenient, and they make wood easier to store. We don't have a woodpile, but we do use a wood rack next to our fireplace inside our home. It's been a must have.

Hey there would you mind sharing which blog pftolarm you're working with? I'm looking to start my own blog in the near future but I'm having a hard time choosing between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your layout seems different then most blogs and I'm looking for something completely unique. P.S Sorry for getting off-topic but I had to ask!Check out my web site ::
