Are the logs split in half???
Splitting logs in half will halve the drying time.
I always stack the split wood bark side up to help keep the rain off it, always tried to tarp the top row if possible.

Remember the smaller the pieces, shorter drying time, look for small cracks in the ends of the logs which means its drying down and probably ready to use.
