My Man’s got wood!

img_1058This is a cord of wood – firewood  measuring 3m x 1m x 1m made up of trois stére 1m x 1m x 1m the word Stére originates fro the Greek word στερεός stereos meaning ‘solid’ and the French have used the word since 1793 as a metric in the original system not part of the modern day metric. We are going to need this to keep warm in our 200yr old farmhouse. We have recieved our firelighting lesson for the woodburner that heats the salon on the first étage.
