    Pete, you have 1001 uses for pallets, is your house made of pallets? :)

    That's a great setup you have there.

    Actually many of our renovations to our home have included 2*4's out of pallets. I just built a really nice stud wall out of pallet 2*4's for a friend in his basement and it looks like a pro job.

    Terrific looking woodsheds. I am looking to build a lean to style, like Argus, DeerHunter, PapaDave, and Jake (to name a few of the above). If you have the option, do you try to orient the open face in a north, south, east, or west direction?

    That's like what I have going on. Will that season stacked like that in a big pile? It sure is convenient.

    My covered porch is my wood shed. In the last picture it is almost full. I have since placed more in there and you can not fit the wheel barrow in anymore. Ready for winter.

    My shed, it's 10x20 .raised slated floor,divided in two rows. I can't take credit for the design because I got all the ideas off this forum, my other shed is about the same size with a dirt floor and a roof with that design I could go for years without using the wood in the back rows. With the 2 rows I hope to use one per season.

    stejus. Very nice. Name of beer please. The wood always keeps us interested. But that is going overboard.

    Stejus, nice shed, but are there any concerns with no airflow on the sides and the back. A lot of sheds I see have sides that are vented.

    You really can't see it, but at the top along the back and sides and front, there's about 6" to 10" of space between the roof and the siding.

    The beer of the season is Sam Octoberfest. One of my seasonal favorites!

    Here is what I am using for my wood shed. It was originally a loafing shed for horses that the previous owners built. instead of building something new I made a few modifications and turned it into a wood shed. All I really had to do was clean it out and put some pallets on the ground. It holds 6 1/2 cords of wood.

    Perfect use of recycling something. It gets the job done. As a matter of fact, the guy who helped me build mine said that the next owners may use this as a horse "walk in". He's a farrier so he see's lot of these pole sytle sheds. Does your shed have a floor? You may want to put pallets down next year if it doesn't.

    Yes, I put pallets down and then on top of the pallets I put down some 1/4 thick plywood that came off the top of printing plate crates making a floor to stack the wood on.
