    Build one big enough to hold all the wood you will use in heating season with a little extra just in case.. I wish I had done the roof style of the left one too..

    Here's my little wood shed. It will hold just over a cord. The rest of my wood is in piles. I took these the other morning after some overnight snow.

    Nice little shed Halligan. So, does your department have a Maxim fire truck. Just curious. TFD has a Maxim Ladder Truck.

    Raybonz, I wish I had the room for a bigger shed.

    As for my Maxim avatar. I took that picture at an antique fire truck meet and it happens to be a retired Worcester Mass engine. However, My department ran a couple Maxims (see pictures) and the first truck I drove was the 1963 pumper shown. The original Maxim's were indeed built in Middleboro Mass. The Maxim fire engine that's being sold today has nothing in common with the old Maxim's other than the name. Greenwood Fire Apparatus in North Attleboro Mass, who also happens to be a big E-One and Horton Dealer bought the rights to the Maxim name and began building trucks. They have only built a few big pumpers with the Maxim name using Spartan cab/chassis and some smaller squad/mini/rescue style trucks.

    Sorry to take the thread in a different direction but you guy's asked.

    Now back to woodshed's.

    Still need to add sides before I can stuff it full. Much of the wood was recycled. Some things I would have done differently, but it will do the job.

    From a different era of fiscal responsibility... they didn't even spend the money for roofs!

    You should cross stack the ends. Then you could almost double the capacity.
