How to build a firewood shed?
by Big D
I want to build a firewood shed from small diameter logs on my property...easier for a woman to handle...enough to hold 6 cords of wood to burn over the winter. I could easily see 6 sheds or 3 bays each side with one main sturdy wall shared in the middle.
My goal is to not spend any money.
I can peel or not peel the logs. I would love to avoid digging holes for the posts as the ground is very rocky. I have lots of tools and power tools.
I will also need to put a steeply pitched roof of sorts (or rafters) because we live up 4,500 feet elevation and must content with great big snow.
A tarp over the rafters would work temporarily...but I could see getting the attachment for our chainsaw and being able to eventually square a round log and use the flat back pieces we cut off (slabbing or squaring off a beam) as the roof pieces.
I know it's a challenge...but I'm up for it.
Thanks for any help you can afford me.
