    I am starting plans on my wood shed and wanted to see how every one else stacks wood in their shed.
    After it has dried 2 to 3 years outside and you put in your wood shed do you leave any space for air? If it is dry I don't see any reason to leave any space if it has a roof over it.

    We stack 3 rows in the barn every fall. Stack it tight. We even stack it right up to the roof.

    That looks good. I am thinking around four year supply 15 to 20 cord. Maybe when I get it built you could take a vacation come down and show me how you do that. After the first 10 or 12 cord I could take it from there.
