i just discovered your blog today and it makes me smile... especially your quote, "Great design begins with a well stacked wood shed" We burn wood in our home during the winter. My dad would chop it and my sister and I would stack it. Even when i was little, i was fascinated with the way it looked while it was stacked. My side would be half the height of my sisters but it always looked twice as good.
