    Got the shed up (obviously), and I've spent the past couple of weekends working up some red and chestnut oak that's been sitting in a barn since March or April. Also worked up some white oak that was standing dead for a year or two just to the left of the house. It will make a decent pile for next year.

    First, I wouldnt have stacked in the shed right on the ground, the bottom row will wick up the moisture right out of the ground.

    Second, there is NOTHING sinful about burning pine!

    My shed has a concrete slab so less moisture coming up from the ground. It also keeps the frost from pushing unevenly possibly tumbling the pile.

    Before I had the shed, I would cut low grade standing dead wood or dead falls and cross-pile lengths of them to build a floor. The bottom ones I would space out for air movement and the top layer I put closer together like corduroy.
