    Got the wood shed just about finished this weeked. Just going to put some exterior stain on the pine siding so it looks a bit nicer. Should be able to fit 5-6 cords in here which will get me through 1 season. So long to the ice and snow covered tarps!

    Is that doubled LVL for the header or just doubled 2x12?

    How deep? We are allowed 200SF without a permit so twenty feet is the width I'd like by ten feet deep. Why so steep on the roof?

    Trouble with extending the beams out past the soffit is that you need to be sure the water stays off of the beam so it doesn't rot.

    Very Nice, a couple suggestions:
    1. Maybe remove alternating vertical slats on sides for air flow
    2. Some type of support (rebar etc) inside the side framing 4x4's to contain pile slides from punching thru the siding secured to outside of your framing.

    and I do not think your current stash will fit, time to build another shed haha

    Thanks for the pics

    Beautiful shed!
    This motivates me to get going on mine.
    Well... maybe not just yet.
    I'll stare at pictures of yours and pretend.

    Real nice Jaydog.
    Highbeam is right about the ends of the 2 beams getting wet, and madison has a good suggestion about the side walls.
    If you don't cross-stack the ends, the weight of the wood leaning on those walls will, at the very least, cause them to bow out the first year. I ended up building regular stud walls in mine to counter that problem.
    Not trying to rain on your very nice shed, just trying to help.
    You WILL really enjoy not having to deal with the ice, snow and tarps. :cool:
    The steeper roof pitch is a good idea where you are, although with a steel roof, it might not matter as much. Should last a long time, too.
    What's the plan for a floor? How close to the house (access) is it? Details man, we need details.;lol
    Is it full yet?;)

    I built one kind of similar, mine is 16x8. Before I filled it I decided a wall in the middle was a good idea. That reduces the pressure on the sides and also makes the stacks more stable (shorter). You can also remove wood from one side ate time

    Looks great, you will love it!

    Nice shed! Mine is of similar construction if you used rough cut lumber. The 1X10's were very wet/green so I installed fairly snug...shrinkage has given me close to an inch gap between the side boards for some air flow. I was also worried about bowing out but it's been a year now and no ill effects...but gonna keep an eye on it!

    The 2x10 beams that are extended out past the 4x4's are wrapped with rough sawn pine, the plan is to put an exterior stain on those as well as the rest of the siding. And I was planning to put some 2x4's on the ends for supporting the stacks. The way it is now would definitely not hold up once the weight of the wood is pushing against them. On the floor I am just going to get some crushed stone to level it out a little and if I have to shim the pallets on the downhill side a little that will work. This shed is about 25 feet away from my cellar door which is about half the distance of where I usually keep my tarp covered wood during the winter.

    Maybe some landscape cloth under the crushed rock, it will help prevent weeds from coming up thru the rock yet let water thru.
    Nice thought-out well engineered plan ;)
