    Yes Jack, it is going to be a mud mess by the weekend,, being in the upper 40's... Suppose to get cold next week, so maybe the ground will freeze up, snow will have melted off some downed trees and bucked up rounds... get some more wood in..

    I am in the middle of installing a winch on my atv, can't wait to try it out. I have a small ash down already to hook on to.

    Ever figure out a weight on that? I've been thinking of doing something similar with my Deere 855. I have a model 52 loader on the front, a 600 lb. ballast box for the 3-point, and a few wheel weights on this 2000 lb. machine, but the rear tires are not filled, and the overload valve on the loader seems to be set fairly low. I'd like to think I could move a shed that size, but likely only over level ground, and my ground ain't all that level.

    It's a little better than 3/4 cord. I wonder if a "shed" with a 3 pt. hitch would work out? Fill the bucket with loose wood to balance out the 3 pt shed on back!!!!

    Great idea! I'd like to do something with pallets,,maybe stack the wood 2-4 feet high,,think my loader will lift 1000lbs..Maybe get forks for the rear 3 point hitch as well..

    Wood shed survived the first storm. Nothing like a nice stack of dry wood;)

    Has nothing to do with fiscal responsibility and everything to do with standards and mandates, enclosed cabs came about because of deaths as did not riding on tailboards. Both of those lend to bigger fire trucks than times of old.

    Forks on the three pt is far more stable than the FEL.

    Just built this last summer. The wife did not like the tarp set up cant say that I blame her. I think this is one of the best investments that I have made. Took me about a month of part time weekends to build. So happy I did. Its 8'x20'

    speedyvt that looks nice, so that is built on beams set on concrete blocks so it could be moved if you had to?

    That's a very nice looking shed - is it sided with pine boards?

    Going to be building a wood shed this spring and am looking over all the designs on here.
    what is the best way to keep the wood off the ground? A plywood floor? Skids on the ground? Gravel flooring? Landscape timbers on bricks or blocks? If you use skids do you set them on brick or blocks to get them off the ground? Thanks

    You will receive almost as many answers as there are members, here. I like skids, as they're cheap (free), can be easily disposed of (in the stove), and replaced every few years.

    Many different answers to this . . . I went with a board floor with rough cut 2 x 8s or 10s and rough cut hemlock boards and lots of support underneath with rocks, cement blocks, etc.
