Glad this thread came up. I have a garage that’s 24’X30′, I heat with a wood burner and had always used nothing but wood.
About 5 years ago a friend of mine said to use just old newspapers, I told him he was crazy. He showed me how to roll them by hand and now that’s all I use to heat my garage.
My newspapers, after being rolled by hand are 12 1/2″ long and 4″ to 5″ in diameter and are tied with twistie ties.
Once I get a get a good set of coals, I put one log on the fire then 4 or 5 paper logs on top, holds a fire for 8 to 10 hours.
The only draw back is taking out the ashes, the burnt newspaper just wants to blow all over the place. I have about 3 pickup loads of rolled newspapers on hand for this winter, stored in one of my sheds.
