    Nice looking shed, should last a good long time and protect the wood well for the winter. Do the fence panels come off to let the wood dry in the summer or are you only putting seasoned wood into it ?
    We have the same rules about footings and floors and taxation. One thing nobody mentioned is the satellite overhead photo's they call it WINGIS here but it will be coming to your area and they use it to see any additions or new structures pools sheds ect. on your property. Then when the see anything they send someone out or just raise taxes based on what they see and if you disagree you can appeal. Yes what a nice bunch of folks we have.

    :red: Well there you go, now see, my wife made me build my sheds out in the forest, out of sight. Could it be that she has some insight into my carpentry skills? Or lack thereof? :down: No matter, I still love my blue tarps, kinda seperates the forest from the sheds :lol:

    ^Hey sonny just wait till I start posting my blue tarp contraptions...we'll have a competition LOL...btw that's a neat looking shed ya got there. I take it when the weather closes in you drop and secure the tarp right? I imagine BC gets more rain than snow so you remove the wood to the house easily.

    vrey nice shed. I like the cover and possibility fo airflow

    I was in Zurich a couple of weeks ago and I was impressed with the:

    amount of wood collections one can see from the side of the road

    the uniformness of the smooth cuts and tightness of the stacks ( iI think they use the same type of wood processing equip as you)

    How much wood everyone has up against the house...ready to go

    Just did the one pic, but there are 2 more sheds just like the one in the pic. for a total capacity of 8 cords +. I`m using the wee bit of sunny acreage to dry my wood in rows from March till Sept-where it dries much faster with only the tops covered. Actually as far as the "blue tarp contractions", kinda wish I`d spent a few extra bucks on either black or green ones :down:

    Seriously though, when you build your woodsheds in the forest like I have, wood doesn`t season worth crap in there. Sun and wind drying out in the open is a must before stacking it into those tombs. Like the pics below.
