The only thing I have found about buying from a loggery is that you usually have to order a higher quantity and therefore need somewhere to store them.
In saying that, I have left them in the garden shed covered with tarp and they seem to be okay.
I have only started using my open fire this year (was worried about dd2 last year) so don't know if this is reasonable but have just spent £100 on logs which looks to be enough to see us through the worst of the winter.
If you are near Herts/Essex border, let me know and I'll dig out the number I have.
Depending on where you are I'd ask around and see if there is anyone who does deliveries. I've known of quite a few people who do logs by the pick-up load which is much cheaper than buying by the bag.
Alternatively, if you have, or can access, a chainsaw ... you could ask a local farmer if they have any dead trees you can have ... We get all our wood free because DH just finds a tree on the farm and cuts it up ... but I guess we're lucky.
We have a shed that we use just for drying. All through summer we go to woodland and beaches where there is good car access and pick up wood. Then by autumn the wood is dry enough to burn. Also raid skips for any usefull bits of wood.
Tree surgeon. Ours leaves piles outside the house he's worked on, tells people who ask where to collect them from and then comes for any leftovers. The logs are free. He does ask if you mind leaving them outside for people to collect before he does this!
