    . . . is complete. My buddy brought his tractor over and we drilled the holes and set the posts. A 10'x20' shed looks a lot bigger in my yard than it did in my head.

    I have no camera so no pics. And no pics will be forthcoming so cram it.

    So the standard "Pics or it didn't happen" post will not be accepted?????

    Man, I really wish I had the area in my yard to build a wood shed!

    I'm happy to share in the excitement about your new wood shed, but what's with the cram it bit?

    I know the burn season is about over, but things will get better...

    Sounds like we need an artist's rendition of said shed .. All I see is text therefore it does not exist!

    Once you get it filled with a couple year's worth of wood the size will look perfect . . .

    Hey Bigg_Hed, what happen to your last woodshed project? Did it blow over in the wind?

    Don't worry, I'll supply the pictures so nobody has to "cram it".

    I think once it is full with a couple of years worth of wood, the size will be too small. Anyone in here have a shed that is not too small?

    I think my woodshed is perfect . . . enough for two seasons worth of wood . . . it's nice to have that extra wood under cover . . . in case Maine gets covered by a glacier. ;)

    12' deep by about 60' long by 8' tall at the short side. I figure it'll hold aboutn 45 cords or 10 to 15 years worth of wood. Is that too small?

    Was that always going to be a wood shed, or are you just repurposing it? It looks like a couple of people have gone way overboard on their wood shed. :lol:

    Haha yup I'm 54 and feel between 44 and 64 depending on the day.. Sounds like we must be near the same age if you know who Euell Gibbons is

    It was a very confusing childhood. :-S

    Good job getting started.
    That's the size I thought of doing, but went with 10'x16' instead. Not quite enough for 2 years with this stove, but should be when I
    get the new one.

    I went with 10 x 20 for 2 reasons

    1) 200 sq ft is as big as you can build in this state without a permit

    2) The difference in cost for a smaller shed is negligible

    3) It'll hold just over 2 years worth of wood

    1) Three reasons is as high as you can count on this forum without a permit.

    2) The difference in cost for fewer reasons is negligible.

    3) It'll hold just over 2 (or 3) years worth of wood.

    I am so disappointed there are no pics but then again I have a camera and can't get the pictures to post right. I guess I'll cram it. :blank:
