Kiln and boiler
Might not look very exciting but it is to us! This is our new boiler room with the boiler inside, and the foundation for the kiln which should be arriving just before Christmas. The woodchip boiler is due to be commissioned at the end of next week. By January we should be kilning our own truly local sawn timber and firewood. Firewood is flying out to customers – sales up 75% on last year – but having the kiln will mean we won’t run out of dry wood this year. Thanks to everyone who has contributed to making this happen!
Save the forests

Meanwhile Greenpeace have been tracking illegal imports from the Amazon. Tell the EU to seize the illegal shipments.
