    First yearr of burning and I need to store my fuel for the next couple of years. I am wondering what you all do for design and storage.

    the simpler the better, a flat roof tilted away from where you will be getting the wood and wide enough to keep rain and snow from falling on the pile, open sides to allow good drying, a floor or pallets to keep the wood of the ground.
    my dad's was an old chicken coop it would hold 16 cords.

    there's plenty of threads on wood shed desgin's

    Is this already seasoned wood? enclosed is best then. keep the snow and rain out of it

    Green wood will need open side's to let an air flow through for drying.

    My plan is to build a roof from the back of my garage to the retaining wall behind it. Shouldn't be too expensive.
    Later on, I hope to build a lean to out of locust posts so I can store any surplus wood I might get.
    There are a lot of different ways to build a wood shelter and lots of different costs. From the looks of your avatar pic, you might need a pretty one to keep the wife happy.
    One things for sure, a shelter will keep your wood good and dry and that works for me.
    Here's a pic of where I'm putting mine. Old pic, but all I've got.
