I have just found this forum, Badger knows me and we often bump into each other in various Stores in the Valley. This looks like a nice place to be.

Not sure exactly how many acres of wood I have, somewhere around 16 I think, anyways we heat our house and our water from it. We also use it for building.

we heat our house ( mostly) from our wood ( water is mainly from the solar thermal) and I also make all sorts of stuff from the timber.
