Wood furnace

(1:32pm) Nick Watters checks the fire in the furnace that heats his dads house in Atwater, Friday afternoon, April 20, 2018. Nick grew up gathering wood and heating their house and garage with a wood furnace. A lot of wood is required to keep the house warm during winter months. “I remember my punishment as a kid would be to come out here and split wood by hand for the furnace. Sometimes I would be out here for hours as punishment,” Nick said. Zack Davis/ The Kent Stater.
