I was always confused about the different terms, and in any case we only ever asked for a load. He delivered 1 metre lengths on a trailer chassis that was 3 metres long with a stack of 1 metre high. As was ours, they simply drew alongside and transferred the whole lot straight across.
Only once did I order cut logs and he delivered with a tipper trailer in a great big pile. Took us (she could actually do things in those days) 3 days to stack it all, mainly because it had to be tipped where we wanted it stacked. Tricky. Thus I decided that, hard though it became transferring barrow loads closer then cutting in half, that was a better prospect for the future.
I think that the last load we had cost € 150 for the 3 cu.m. For several years before that it was € 140. At 3 loads per year it was more expensive than the extra cost of our air to air heater. Even more economic now that we have a 2nd heater in another room because we have no internal doors (other than bedrooms and bathroom) and the one alone operated far longer than the current 2 as it struggled to heat beyond the room it was in.
We always planned to keep the wood burner as a back up in case of electricity cuts (never again as long as the 3 weeks after the Grande Tempete of '99) but in fact we have only had a fire twice in 5 years, and that not for emergency but nostalgia. I haven’t even bothered to sweep the chimney for at least 3 years.
