storing wood in the basement
Does anyone do this, if so, what are the problems you've run into?
I'm worried about two things: 1) bugs taking over the house 2) the wood not drying or seasoning, or it drys but my house molds from so much extra humidity.
I think I can control the bug thing by dusting the wood with Sevin or some other poison. But I'm worried about the wood not drying out. I have a dehumidifier in the basement but don't want it to be running 24/7 and watch my elec bill shoot through the roof.
I just don't have enough room under the lean-to outside to store wood. I can put 1.5-2 cords in my basement, but not sure if I should store it there over the summer. Any thoughts?
