    I am buying a shed, not for wood but for my tools, 4-wheeler, splitter, saws and what ever.
    I am buying a 8X12 shed which should be big enough to store what I need.

    So I was wondering, how much wood could I stack in a shed that big if I wanted to? the floor plan is 8X12 and we will assume that the lowest part of the ceiling is 7 feet.

    Another question is, if wood is stacked in an enclosed shed with no windows or much air movement, would it take forever to season??

    Thanks, math isn't my thing.

    8X12X7=672 cubic feet divided by 128 = 5.25 cords - assuming the true interior floor space is 8X12 ft., which it probably isn't. I think the 8X12 is the exterior size so lets assume the true size inside is 7.25 X 11.25 X 7 = 570 divided by 128 = 4.45 cords rounded down to 4 is my guess.

    It wouldn't. At least not in the time you're probably willing to wait...unless you ventilate the heck out of it, like call in an air strike from one of BrotherBart's old helicopters. A woodshed meant for seasoning absolutely requires lots of free air movement through it. Rick

    I'm not sure about seasoning, but from what I've read on this site it probably would take awhile.

    5.25 cord

    And, yes.

    It would make for a nice steam bath on a hot summer day!
