they all look good...the one on the left...
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..
HOLY CRAP ! I am copying that next spring ! Can you PM me the dimensions of that bad boy wolfkiller ?
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.
What you need is 3x more space.. Nice shed though!
Don't we all.
Nice little shed Halligan. So, does your department have a Maxim fire truck. Just curious. TFD has a Maxim Ladder Truck.
They used to make those near me.. Dunno if they still do?
Actually, they are back in business after ceasing operations in 1989.
We hope to join this group by next fall, a wood shed / utility shed are planned for a spring/summer project. Thanks for the replies from the members I conversationed, we will be getting some measurements this weekend in our planned spot, we plan 3 bays maybe 4.
They were made in Middleboro at one point a town I can see if I look west..
That's where they started Ray
Yes I remember seeing the place way back..

Dude I want one of those heck all of those ! My garage / shop would always be full of cool toys Why do you dangle this candy in front of us Ray
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.
Looks great BC!
From a different era of fiscal responsibility... they didn't even spend the money for roofs!
Looks great BucksCo!
Heres mine. Dimensions are 3x12, not real big but it serves its purpose and was built from extra lumber i had
You should cross stack the ends. Then you could almost double the capacity.
BC what would you do differently, love the salt box design.
