    I don't know why I'm fascinated with folks' wood piles/stacks/sheds, but I am. Nice pictures!

    good ol' woodshed - will hold just enough wood for a season. 12' deep and 16' wide, i usually stack it about 7' high. hope to put lights in there next summer. i bought a orange "timber felling ahead" sign at a gargae sale for $3 - hanging on the left side.

    Awesome shed WolfKiller! Please post pics of it full. Is the framing stained or all pressure-treated? Do you place the splits on anything or right on the ground? Again, great looking shed!

    I am not worried about it sitting next to the house,it will only be full during the burning months after that it will sit empty until the next burning season. My biggest problem is the opening faces the West. I tried to tell wifey that it was a bad idea but this is where she wants it, I'll win this battle when the snow and rain have the wood she wants to burn soaking wet. I wanted it where it was in the first pics.

    Nice shed cwitham! I think you've raised the bar by adding the gutter; I think yours is the only shed I've seen w/roof drainage into a gutter! ;)

    Well it wasn't going to but since wifey changed my plan I added it so we don't get wet getting wood out of it. I'm considering putting a barrel in the downspout so I can use the water for the rasp and black berries that are 30 feet away.

    I wouldn't worry about an open face. Most rain falls pretty straight down. You could hang a heavy canvas tarp over the open face that would prevent Rain and snow from blowing in. That's what I do in winter

    It is not treated lumber. After building it I turned my wife and three kids loose with 5gal of deck stain.
    This shed cost $1600 in materials and takes one guy one day to build. Material prices in Alaska.
    I put my wood on the ground. Bottom row gets burned in bonfires.

    I think I found a good spot for our big shed, the barn and the house in the background are on the West side of my property line

    I searched your pic on google and found this site that houses a dozen or so wood stacking art pics. Amazing stuff.

    Wow! Some people have both time and talent at their disposal. Personally I couldn't stack something so lovely to just turn around and burn it even after a couple years!
    Nice site

    The one on the left is better looking, but the one on the right would go up faster. I'd go for the one on the left since I'd be looking at it for - hopefully - a while

    The one on the right is less likely to have snow sliding off on your head, or rain pouring on you :)

    I never thought about the rain or snow. Falling of the small roof in front. Gutter?

    In my opinion the one on the left looks sharp . . . but if you live in an area with snow you may end up with some snow dumping off the front. Shed on the right is simpler to build. Truth is . . . either will do the job and you will be happy.
