    Really, it isn't special at all, Just what you would expect inside a tool shed/wood shed. But I do have a chair in there and it's a place to relax and have a smoke in the winter. I only smoke a pipe now, since I quit cigarettes, but never in the house.

    Here's the early stages of my wood shelter. Just need to add in some supports on the sides and the roof. I have some SunTuff clear corrugated roofing on order, this way we still get some sunshine through the basement window there and avoid the dungeon effect.

    Nothing pretty, built out of scrap wood 10 years ago.
    Holds just shy of 4 cord.

    This lean to was added on last year for already seasoned wood for closer house access. This holds 3 cords packed the way it is

    It's a second hand ladder from my father in law who's about 260. I'm 6'2" and about 170, I can avoid that step if need be ;)

    Are you planning on doing anything on separating the wood from the house? I'd heard that it's no good to pile wood beside the house because of termites, ants, fire hazard, etc. That being said, my whole pile is right beside my house, underneath my deck :)

    I still have to add in supports on the walls and pallets for the floors, but as far as any separation for termites etc I've never done that before. I think as long as you're rotating it or burning it quickly there shouldn't be a problem. Our wood doesn't usually hang around long.
    I'm not even sure what you would do to stop them other than spraying.

    I stack my wood 300 feet from the house, and only move a cord at a time up to the house in cold weather, stacking on a stone patio under the porch overhang. In warm weather, there's no firewood anywhere near the house.

    Dad just got it finished about 2 months ago. It's basically just an addition to the pole barn. The wood shed part is 12x54. Right now there is enough wood for both me & dad's place for next winter. Not sur if we'll ever fill the whole 12x54 with burning wood... but will see..... I paid for the material (Free cedar pole, used metal roofing, new timber and a helper for dad as I am working oin the road) and the total cost was under 1400$. So now I am looking for some more used roofing so I can eventually put an other 12x54 extension on the other side of the building.... but that's another story....

    The shed is approx 1500 feet from my place, but we kept the road clear during the winter. I can get approx 1 cord in the basement, so I fill it up approx 3-4 time per winter (Depending on the wood I am burning).

    Sweet. I would give an arm and leg to have the space to do that! You stay tight with Dad. If he is anything like me, you have NO idea how much it means to him.

    Hey Nickolai - nice work, but just a heads up - it is not a good idea to stack wood at your house wall. My exterminator said that was why we had an ANT infestation. He said to keep wood stacks away from the house. Maybe at least put a barrier between the wood and the wall. Cheers!

    Point taken, I used to have a wood hold in the basement of my old house that held about 4 full cords, not nearly enough to get us through the winter so the turnaround was pretty quick. I always wait until the first frost at a minimum before I move any wood in or around the house to keep the snakes etc away, as for the ants, it's a risk I'm willing to take. Otherwise I'd have to get rid of toys to free up space in the yard...
