Lots of info here about storing splits and logs, but am seeing nothing about how to store lumber scraps, and that's my problem. Up till now I've been buying just about all my firewood. But last spring that sort of changed. I had run out and all I could get was still a bit wet. So I tried mixing the wetter stuff with some dry pallet scraps and free cut lumber that's available locally. And lately not wanting to dig into my stacks, I again went after the free lumber and have been pretty satisfied with burning it in uniform piles almost like bio bricks -- (pieces right now are about 3x5x1 but the size can vary.) Stacked tightly in rows they burn slowly, like splits. In fact, since the supply seems reliable and close by am thinking about using a lot of it this season. Up till now, I've just been getting what I can in the spare 30 gal trash cans I have around and loading the wood stove from them and keeping them in the house. But they are filled up and I want to stock up so need a way of storing more outside. Can't just put it on pallets like my regular stacked firewood. I looked around at Walmart and they had some less than $20 50 gal plastic storage boxes, but I really need more storage than that. So am thinking I'll have to build something outside to store the cut up lumber in, Ideally covered, since a lot of what they have is in cardboard boxes that I keep to use for storage and transport of the pieces. Tried searching here and am not seeing a lot that's applicable. Want something that's going to store at least about a cord. Likely I'll have to make my own layout, but I'd like to get some ideas by seeing or hearing about some examples. Maybe there's another term other than covered wood bin. What I really need is a system. A type of container (s) I fit in my van or hatchbk to take over to pick up the wood. Then transport that from the vehicle to the outside storage and then from there into the house to the stove. Finding something free or inexpensive would be the best way, but I'm handy enough and don't mind building something not too complex.
