    1 cord of wood is 128 cubic feet.

    So, your wood shed is 2016 cubic feet of wood (24 x 12 x 7). Simply divide any volume like this by 128 cubic feet to get the cords.

    Looks like it holds a lot of wood.

    Wow, that puts it at 15.75 cord.

    even if I take a few feet off for measuring the outside of the walls, it still puts me over 15 cord.

    I think I got a good start at next year too.......

    Since I'm a teacher by profession, I guess I didn't want to do all the math for him, just set him up. I can't help it.
