    That looks great!

    I think I can get away with that type of set up on my lot without a permit, as according to my local inspector they don't deal with buildings that are not occupied, are temporary(not secured to the ground),and only have a seasonal use.

    I'm not sure if this is a loop hole to allow the farmers to build equipment shelters,and people to use those temporary car shelters, but I may run with it.

    How close to your house did you build it?

    Thanks to all for your great comments. First year burning and everything is going as planned... New woodshed, new chimney liner, hearth pad and 11 cords worth of free wood css. Life is good for sure. Final break-in fire on the Oslo tonight. Giddyup!

    Great job on all counts. Love that shed! :cool:
    How did your wood seem on the break-in fires? Did it dry pretty well in a year? Kick back and enjoy the warmth; You've earned it. :)

    It seems about 6 cord has dried proper and ready to burn. Started scrounging last November and had most split and stacked by February. Wood is burning perfect on all 3 break-in fires. Seems to easy so far. Guess all the reading here on the hearth paid off big. Looking forward to the burn season but, not rushing it believe me.

    What an incredible job! With all the work you put into that, I assume you have a carpentry background. I would love to have something just half that size and the knowledge to build it right.

    I am very fortunate to have been in the building industry for almost 30 years. I feel very blessed to have a talent like this were I really don't have to think about building something. I just have a mental image and put it together. It has saved me a ton of money over the years and it gives me great satisfaction. And thanks for the kind words.

    No loop hole required here. Farmers do not need building permits except for occupied buildings.

    Very nice shed. You're off to a great start and will love it come mid-snowy winter.
