    Seasonal Greets to All from Blighty,

    I have recently installed a log-burner and now realise that the thing has a voracious appetite: as a result I need to build a lean-to type log store where I can cure wood before bringing into the house.

    I am looking for something that looks like the link below and would appreciate if anyone could point me in the right direction on how to build or plans for a similar store.

    Much appreciated and cheers!

    Yes, but if you're up for the challenge, product ID 4416 looks like this.

    Apologies for truncated link - the last part was somehow guillotined and it's posted again below in its entirety - which I hope now works;

    http://www.countrywidefarmers.co.uk...2.CountrywideAS3?ProductID=4416&redirect=true

    Thanks to LLigetfa for the research and by way of explanation yes the store is small which is why they suggest linking several together - the only problem being they are around $450 each and as I need 3 I figured I could build them myself for a lot less than the $1,500 they would charge me (incl delivery) - even with our inflated UK prices?

    They are also located here through another vendor; http://www.euroheat.co.uk/accesso.php?style=Log Stores

    If anyone can direct me towards a site where there is anything similar in plan form with timber sizes and quantities it would be much appreciated.

    Regds,

    It's hard to tell from the pictures how tall they are but I wouldn't make them too tall but I would make them wider. Also, the shed roof pitched forward like that would drip down your neck. I'd slope it the other way.

    How many cord do you plan to store?
