Rotti are those 6 x 6 for corner post on your shed.

Here you go Madison, no need to build a plain jane box. Lol.....
Openings all the way around and holds close to 3 years worth of wood. Just a pain in the rear to build and I have power and a chandelier hanging in it!
Mine is 8 x 16 with sides, open front and back. Also devided in the center. You can remove wood from the front or back, this solves the rotation issue.
Mine is 24x12, 3 bays of 8x12, open both front and back for access which helps facilitate wood rotation. I use half of the first bay for tools/equipment storage. Looking back the only thing I would change is maybe a 4th bay or making it a full 16ft deep as opposed to 12ft; but the way i designed it w/2ft overhangs all around, that maximized the plywood and metal roof use/layout.
I am just starting to think of a wood shed. I wondered if I need footings or if I can just use 6X6s and tie it together somehow? Any ideas? I built my garage and over it I have a huge wood shop, I used traditional building techniques full footings and framing, I just hope I don't have to go that route.
Mine's getting a center dividing wall between the l/h and r/h sides this year. I'll lose a touch of space, but I'll be able to pull wood from each side w/o affecting the other side.
I may also add a front overhang.
Mine is pretty simple 8' x 16' treated lumber, I rotate doors each yr, have recently added on. I am done but don't have a picture.
Oh most certainly a nice design by Calvin Kline..... or Polo
I find that my re-purposed old wash house located 8ft from my garage man-door works great. I added double doors that allow me to back my wood wagon right inside. Out of the elements with lights makes easy working. It is 24 x 24 and split into two bays. Each bay will hold a years worth - easily. Only dry wood goes into that building.
That's the Rolls Royce of woodsheds. Holy smokes.
I think we will go with the concrete forming tubes when we build ours.
Wood Pavillion! or perhaps Palace?
I wish I had a garage that big
Well...I have a redonkulous amount of shed space - 54 x 74, a 40 x 60 my 24 x 24 wood shed and an attached garage. Throw in an empty chicken coop to boot. It just means that I can horde more crap.
I never tire of coming in this thread and looking at these great sheds!
Show-offs! (says with jealousy)
Lots of great ideas here. I need to build a wood shed and this thread will come in handy.
Does anyone have any issues with bees in the wood shed or other wood storage places?
Just bought this place last summer and the hornets and wasps pretty much took over anything under cover. I bet I went through a dozen cans of spray and didn't come close to keeping up. Took care of the big nests but found many small ones I missed in the fall.
No bees . . . but I have found various chipmunk and mouse nests scattered throughout my woodshed.
I have hiberating bees/yellowjackets in the fall and winter time (now), but have not had any nests in 2 years since I built it. Like Jake I have the occasional squirrel, field mouse nest here/there.
Just think of how many cords you could store in that tan shed in the background (that is the 54 x 74). Oh, and there is the currently empty chicken coop too (in chicken coop red).
Just teasing ya, buddy.
WOW, Jags!! Boy, what I could do with space like that! She'd kick me out the door and off the property!
Blue2ndaries_ that is one nice shed. I remember when you were starting it but not sure I have seen the finished shed.
that overhang almost eliminates the need for sides.
