    My splitter goes to the log pile when it's time. I split right there and stack them nearby onto pallets against a fence. I don't cover my wood as I feel that makes things worse unless it's in an actual building. I let the natural rain/wind season it, then when it's ready I move it to the barn. I typically set 4 or 5 cords in the barn to have ready for winter, then as I use the supply I will move more in.

    I only heat the shop, but even that takes a fair amount of wood.

    I try to keep firewood sold ahead and not spilt it until it’s going out. Then I split it and throw it directly on the truck. If I’m splitting ahead I just let it fall off the end of the splitter and don’t touch it again until it’s loaded. Stacking isn’t necessary, thats a lot of work. The wood I heat my house with gets stacked under cover for 2 years.
