What's the etiquette on posting pictures of someone else's shed? A guy down the road from me has the Cadillac of all stack covers. He has solved the dilemma of covered vs uncovered by using plexiglass panels, imagine a long, low greenhouse without sides, beautifully built. It deserves to be here.
i wanna see....post away lol
Quick question on the construction of these wood storage sheds... I am thinking of building the lean to barn framing type like Blue's above but only 14'x6'. I know the post's and the wood near the ground should be pressure treated. What about the wood for the upper half like the support cross member boards, header, roof rafters, and plywood for the roof? I plan to wrap it with T1-11 or something so the internal framing would never get wet.
Id like to see that too.
Nice shed Blue, nice and big and room for tools, beautiful.
Stejus--I think std lumber for internal framing should be fine, especially if you are going to side it w/T1-11. I had a lot of lumber leftover from our house construction which i used for my framing. But all of my shed's main structure, posts and beams, are PT. My overhangs are wide enough so none of my internal framing gets wet.
If its that nice.... Then I say post it. I wanna see it
So far so good, you just need to get that Coors Light opened.
Finally decided on a spot after trying to find some area close to the stacks and not imbeded with bolders. Here is the before and after shot of some weekend work. You should be able to see orange string. That's the future home of a 14'x6' shed with a 16' roofline to overhang the sides. I plan to bring the front roof and extend so there's a short roof line up front as well. I'll post when I finish this.. hopefully soon so I can fill it before too long.
Depends on how much you value your time versus your money. This will be at least partially open to the weather (to promote drying) and be filled with bug-ridden firewood. I'd be building the entire thing out of PT lumber, simply because I don't want to be doing it again in 10 - 15 years.
New arrival: 14'x20' wood shed. A buddy was razing a site five miles away and saved this for me. We loaded it onto a bobcat trailer yesterday and brought it over first thing this morning. Hope to have the foundation poured and electrical hooked up in a week or so. All I can say is God is good!
Now if I only had moose antlers to hang on it.
Here are a few pictures of my Third wood rack. They've gotten progressively larger as I've built new ones. This is one about 15.5' x 72 and planned on being about 8'+ tall.
The top picture is looking west towards last year's wood rack which was considerably smaller than this one. The goal is to have it complete and looking like the other one sans a few changes and tricks I learned from the last one. That should put total storage of firewood on my lot at about 12 Cord. The new rack should hold pretty close to 6 cords if not a little more and I have about 7 in the other two wood racks. Pretty much everything I have in the rack is Red Fir with a few rows of tamarack thrown in.
I'll post more pictures as it gets closer to completion.
Tmonter. Looks great. You have an approximate cost? Is that cedar or untreated pine? I was thinking of using pressure treated when I eventually build mine.
It's not pine lumber I'm using it's Red Fir. The posts are treated and the rest of the wood is not. I'll put a single coat of Behr water based stain (clear) on it before I stack wood in it but other than that I don't really worry much. We don't have a termite problem here and bugs tend to ignore really dry wood since the humidity is so low here. Treated lumber is at least 2x the cost of regular so I figure with a coat of stain if it lasts 10+ years I'm doing good.
I built my entire shed out of treated lumbar. I say build it once so it lasts many years...
Here a couple of shots of the shed the boys made for me....at the back....after they constructed a screened in porch and extended deck.
think i get about 6-7 cord in it. only used half last year, filled up now and ready.
New style shed? Shed on legs! Gets it off the snow layer. This will hold up to 5 cords.
smed, thats really cool. you plan on wrapping the sides once the snow starts flying?
smed has a cool idea, and I love those cheek mortises on the natural poles, but my knees hurt just looking at those steps. Tell me your loader bucket or trailer comes in flush with the floor!
It's not nearly as pretty as many of the others on this thread, but it works just fine. The best part, of course is that I didn't have to build it. Mrs. said the was going to paint it this summer, but I'm loosing faith that's going to happen this year. How much does it hold? I donno. Enough to last me all winter!
I wish my wood shed had satellite TV, like burnt2perfection's. Aw, heck... I wish I had a wood shed.
Work in process, roof is on now, just need to side it, gets some pallets and load it with wood before November. almost there...
Pallet Pete's perfectly partitioned and painted pallet's.
O ya and some not so painted ugly bins
I have posted mine before, but will add it to this thread with the rest. It was a dog kennel that was here when I purchased the place. I think it holds a little over 6 cords. Hopefully next summer plan on building a 12X24 and will use some of the materials I had from a dog kennel I built at my last place that the new owner wanted removed before moving in.
Here is another shot different angle.
And here is a picture of the girls that were to ugly to be asked to the prom.
