    I'm looking for an easy storage shed for seasoned wood to put near the house. Does anyone think this shed would hold up to the weight of a lot of wood? The manufacturer said the floor could hold the weight of a car if it was evenly distributed. The floor is rubber and I thought I would put hardwood over it. Based on the dimensions (7'x7'x7.9' ) it could hold about 2 cords stacked six feet high. What does everyone use for storage of seasoned wood near the house?

    Nice looking shed but what about ventilation? Does it have windows? Need some air movement in there to keep the humidity and condensation at bay.

    I've seen that Marty. Looks cool, but problem is I live in the suburbs, so the city would never let me build something like that, and definitely not near the house. I'm also very busy with work and a nine month old and don't have time to build something.

    Hmmmm... good point about the ventillation. I didn't think about that. With the plastic roof it would likely get very hot and humid in there. It has two small vent areas near the peak of the roof, but they are small and probably would not do much.

    That plastic shed is nice. Too bad you couldn't put a ridge vent and some ground level intake vents on it.

    On the Woodheat shed, look at the diagram below the photos and you'll see ventilation galore.

    Eah?

    Thanks for the ideas. I figure I could add a few ground level intake vents and put to vents on the front and back near the roof peak to exhaust the hot air. May not be ideal ventillation but should work.
