    Under my deck is a perfect location for stacking my wood due to how close it is to the door where the stove is. However, after finding the wood I stacked under there last winter all soggy this spring, I decided I would have to build a "roof" under my deck to take care of the problem.

    This summer we helped frinds tear down an old garage. There was a nice pile of old lumber iinside that was heading for the landfill so I bought over my cut off saw and cut the boards to length. This fall I split them all up, this is the pile that had paint, varnish or hardware on them that we will use in the firepit next summer.

    Great job recycling......one of my favorite hobbies!

    Roof looks great, and is functional for a great purpose. How much wood do you figure you can keep under there?

    Good spot to keep a dry stash. Well done.
    You know, 2 more walls & you've got yourself a woodshed. Just sayin'...

    Nicely done. May as well fill it while the weather is nice - curtains are closed in that window anyway.

    Thanks Boom Stick. Hearth.com Members, I could get maybe 3 - 3 1/2 (face) cords. First year part time burner so I will see how this quantity works out. Midwestcoast and donnest, Hmmmm. Never thought of going up past the window. I would know spring was near when I could see out over the wood again. I plan to make a box to mount up above on the right side to hold my kindling.

    Good idea. I store some wood under my deck also. How soon can you install a roof under my deck?

    Looks great. I have a similar set up with a raised deck. Thanks for the idea. I think I'll price it out and consider doing something similar next summer.
