    Almost 29 to be exact,not rail ties but plain ol' 2 x 4 whitewood (spruce or white fir) stained & weathered.Salvaged shorts of decades old corrugated galvanized barn roofing over plywood for the top.Didnt see pressure-treated southern yellow pine around here back then,only Con Heart Redwood,Western Red Cedar & untreated Douglas Fir.Too expensive for me then.Its held up well considering all its been through.If & when it gets rebuilt,gonna go with treated landscape timbers for the posts,treated 2 x 6 for the braces,galvanized roofing & treated 1/2" narrow strips of plywood for the ends & back side. A simple basic lean-to.

    Great thread . . . have to say that the OP photo actually makes the woodshed look quite nice.

    If we were to vote on the fugliest shed I would have to give it to the Bayou Shed . . . but that said . . . I still think the fugliest woodshed beats the neatest stack of wood any time . . . or at least when it's snowing like a banshee in middle of January and you are able to pick and choose what wood you want to burn that night without getting soaked by the snow or having to remove a foot of it off the top of the wood stack.

    Here is mine .... made 100% from pallets and scraps. More of a covered stack than a "shed" but close enough to be "Fugly"

    Love these sheds! I was going to make use of some pallets to make mine but the Mrs wanted something with more eye appeal(at least to her) since it will be visible from the side deck where we spend a lot of summer/autumn time.

    Thanks!! Put that thing together after my canopy rolled over in the wind and bent some parts. It is one section shorter now but perfect for pallet island. Canopy top started to leak a bit after a few years of UV and weather...so i got a new tarp for her a few weeks back.

    Pallets = $0
    Canopy = $0
    Rope = $0 from my uncle
    New Tarp = $27

    New wood shed should be installed this spring when I do some renovation of that side of the house. It is the last part of my yard/house that I need to get done.

    I think you did a great job and for no money! If your wood stays dry then your shelter is a thing of beauty! Anything is better than dealing with tarps if you have wind which I get here..

    I think we have a winner here! :) The main thing is how dry is your wood? You could dress that up a bit and it wouldn't look too bad.. Perhaps some pallet sides with some sort of roofing ..

    I agree pallet island is the winner (so far),Bayou Woodshed is more a work of art IMHO with Pallet Island just plain fugly.

    Well, I bring loads up in the trailer and toss it all out and then stack it from there. It depends on if the kids are helping or not. Been pretty busy with next years wood these days. I have a pretty bad back for a 40 yr old and I sometimes do things to minimize back issues at the time, depending on how I feel.

    As for Pallet Island, the wife hates it BUT let it be known that it is TEMPORARY! 4 or 5 years temporary but that is another story. I'll take the crown for now unless something else comes along to push me into second place. Not sure if i should show the wife this thread or not??

    Guess I'll have to really show off once i build the new one...

    PS - Just finished my IPE deck to help the wife with her Pallet Island Syndrome. Out the slider on to the IPE and into the hot tub...for the WIN!
