    I have a small area I was considering building a small wood shelter for. Something that would hold a cord or so and could be moved at the end of winter. Anyone seen such a thing or have one? Pics or plans?

    For that amt of wood why not just throw a tarp over the top and call it a day?

    How about some sort of covered trailer. You could stack it once and just move it when you want to.

    I could throw a tarp over it but I hate taking tarps on and off with the snow that piles up on them. Im looking to build some sort of shelter so I can keep my wood outside and bring it in as I load it in the stove . I want to keep it just outside the door but also keep snow off of it. Right now I keep about a cord in the house.

    How about a small lean to? 4 vertical posts and a slanted roof.

    This is a simple wood shed I just built. It was an old well house I tore down and used the existing foundation to build on. Very simple open air design with a simple a-frame roof. I used alot of scrap wood I had and shingles. Per the dimensions it should hold 4-5 cord
