Finally finished my firewood shed rebuild
« on: November 07, 2014, 02:32:56 PM »
As the title suggests, I finally finished rebuilding the firewood shed that was at the house when we bought it last year.  The old shed was poorly cut metal on all sides, so it looked like a shipping container - not much to look at and it leaked something terrible.  I tore everything off, down to 4x4 posts, framed a roof and reused some of the metal to cover it all back up.  For the siding, I got some reject decking boards from the mill up the road - kiln dried 16' pine but didn't meet grade for a variety of reasons.  Price was right (FREE!) so how could I go wrong.  Still need to finish up some trim work but at least all my wood is in the dry.



And of course, this project would have never been a success without proper supervision  :D

Nice looking shed that should keep your firewood dry for yrs to come.   looks like one of your supervisors had a long day and need a nap.

Very nice!  That's a mighty good looking shed.
I cant figure out which one I like better: working with wood or making the tools to work with wood.

Id have a hard time just putting wood in that shed. My iron would run in it first. Looks great

I went round and round with how I wanted to build it...knowing that I was reusing the 4x4s from the previous shed helped me narrow down a plan.  If I'd had to start from scratch I'd still be drawing stuff  :D

I would like to build one, but lazyness is getting in my way. 
Getting TOO old to "man handle" wood anymore. Looking at building a firewood processor.

Thanks, I thought so too!  I still have a pile of it left, so I'm thinking a chicken coop addition to the shed would be a perfect way to get rid of it  :)

You bet! got to love the rejects :D  Great job on the wood shed,  I have to believe with the proper supervision anything is possible ;D   
only have a few chain saws I'm not suppose to use, but will at times, one dog Dolly, pretty good dog, just not sure what for yet,  working on getting the gardening back in order, and kinda thinking on maybe a small bbq bizz,  thinking about it,

If anyone is a serious wood burner a wood shed is a must. Good air circulation in the shed is important as is its proximity to where the wood will be burned. Easy load from a trailer or truck, don't have it in the middle of a groomed lawn. One other tip as soon as its empty fill it or over the summer it will fill up with junk and mommy's stuff. Frank C.
