    Newer member, but have always visited this site for great info etc. You can pretty much guarantee anything to do with burning wood can be found on this site. I've been cutting, chopping, and hauling wood ever since I could ride a bike.

    Wanted to share a pic of my "converted" wood shed. It has 10 sides and is approx 20 feet across. If I ever run out of wood I can always burn the board and batten siding I put up 10 years ago, its all white oak! I have approx 3 years of wood in shed, mostly ash, and as you can see from wood pile pic I have lots more to process this winter. There's shagbark hickory, ash, cherry, locust and oak in the pile. This wood will be for the 2016 season on. Any guesses as to what I originally built this shed for?

    Your neighborhood group requires a gazebo in every yard, but they didn't specify what you could put in it?

    That's about the best use of a gazebo I've ever seen.

    Awesome wood shed.
    Any wood shed that's full is great, yours is top notch.
    You need to build another one for all the other wood, BIGGER :)
    Great pictures

    I love the "gazebohausen" -- both the newly coined term and the actual pic.

    Welcome to hearth.com. Thanks for posting.

    This is what I built mine for originally. It now does store wood in the winter, as it is a staging area. 1/2 way from wood shed to my stove.

    The windows make it look like a shoot house for say a turkey shoot or for some sort of hunt club bird hunt?

    Sure is a pretty site with all that wood. Best I've seen in awhile.

    It contains the stone altar where you perform the ritual animal sacrifices on the holy days. I'm quite sure there's some correspondence between the orientations of the ten sides and sacred points in the night sky at the soltices and equinoxes.

    Gazebohausen? Lol... I remember reading awhile back about the holhausen and the reasoning for stacking wood that way. Looked like a PIA to me. If there any members here from Europe I'm sure they have seen plenty of these sheds.

    No on the turkey shoot, sacred stone, etc.......

    Welcome to the forum wishlist. Nice woodpile too. Guess? How about what started out as a corn crib but ended up as a wood house?!

    btw, we are not too far apart with you being from Corunna.
