    I'm using the shed to store a mower deck, snowblower, 2 mountain bikes and some other odds & ends so I figure with the space remaining I should be able to get about 6.5 to 7 cords in there. We normally burn less than 5 cords/yr. so that should work out well.
    Next year, after the hemlock siding has had a chance to dry out I plan to either paint it or stain it. There is a small storage shed nearby that is painted but I prefer the look of stain. Hoping to get a pic of it completely done except for paint/stain and fully loaded soon!

    Thanks zap and others for the comments. I've loaded 2 truck beds of wood so far and I must say that for unloading a truck on your own the pickaroon is a great tool. No more hopping into and out of the truck several times to unload. Got this and a cant hook last spring...looking forward to cutting down a big one to finally use the cant hook.

    A friend of mine stained his hemlock siding with drain oil. It smelled a little for about a week, but it looked great and the price was good!

    Nice job on the project.
