Firewood Shed

A firewood shed is definitely a "step-up" for storage and may be something you want to consider for your wood stove.

If you have a smaller supply, then a simple stack, holder or rack will do fine for your long-term storage needs. Keep in mind though, that firewood needs to be properly sheltered once it is seasoned. If you are in for the long haul, a shed is a good bet.

One mistake many people make is using a shed as the drying facility. While it does have a roof, typically a well-built structure simply won't allow enough air to pass through the pile and dry it sufficiently. The concept behind this is long-term seasoned wood storage that is easily accessible and kept dry.

How big should you build it? This depends but a good rule of thumb is to have two cords of wood on hand as a fuel supply, so design a shed that can hold at least that much. Whether that is a taller, wider, or longer building is up to you.

There are many plans available to build your own. You can hire a contractor, but its not too difficult to put together your own project as well. We recommend the plans from Shedking (Check out the plans now).
