    I'm getting well into the 2010-11 wood supply and decided I needed a new stacking yard. I've got these posts spaced so that I can build a shed over them with no problems if I decide to. However, knowing myself I'll probably end up just covering the stacks with corrugated metal roofing.

    I can see why you would hesitate to build a structure on poles set like that. Bring that post setter my way and we'll see if we can get the vertical alignment adjusted so that it is perfect. You'll earn a P.H.D (post hole digger) for your effort. Otherwise, yeah I'd settle for the corrugated too. (Seems to work great..envyenvy)

    Great to hear you're cutting wood for over a year away.
    Lots of tall grass there - what will you do to keep it away from the wood?
    For a roof, are you going to connect the posts to the fence? Or are the posts for the ends of the ranks?
    'Tis the season to season.
    Happy burning.

    If I roof it, all building will be done on an entirely diferent structure. Those were just some posts I had kicking around so I opted to use them rather than buy new T posts. I have the metal & 2X6 lumber already on hand. I'd just buy 4X4 PT to set in the ground and build from. I did space things so my stacks will easily fit under the size structure I plan to build with the already on hand materials.

    ETA: That cursed johnsongrass is now cut raked & rolled. I'll hit the area with roundup and/or Pramitol in the spring & it's quite unusual for there to be any significant grass down there in a normal hay season.
