I've decided to modify my 10' x 20' shed so that I won't have to cross-pile the ends to be free standing. My shed abuts another toolshed, is open on one long (North) side, and has lattice on the other two. I reinforced the lattice on the other (South) long side so that I can stack right up against it in a pattern of N/S and E/W. I also built short wall sections along the North side with openings for access. At each gable end, I will have two 10 foot long rows (1 cord per row) running N/S and in the middle I'll have three N/S rows. I will then in-fill the two spaces between the centre and outside rows going E/W. By not having to cross-pile the row ends, I will avoid a lot of the time consuming tedious work that needs to be done meticulously to avoid the 9 foot high stacks from developing a lean and blowing out. I will be able to put the wood in the shed sooner and not have to stack it twice as I do now. When you stack green wood, you get a lot of shrinkage that threatens to topple your piles. The way I reinforced the lattice, the 2x6 studs will also act to keep the stacks plumb as they shrink. I got most of the studs in place except for the side of the shed that still has wood from last year in the way. I still have to make more lattice for the North side before I can start moving the wood I have out since last year along with some of the wood I bucked up early this year. The wife says she wants to cut back on how much wood we burn, relying on the natural gas furnace more. If that really does happen, I can get back to having a three year supply in my woodshed rather than just a year and a half. I'd be happy to get two years of burning. That way, I can just alternate sides and not worry about putting newer wood in front of old. As I have it planned now, if I burn more than half a cord past the centre of the shed in one year, I have to stage the other side so that I have decently dry wood to steal from. As I move my heap-hausen to the shed, the (wetter) wood that is near the ground will get separated. The plan is to put the best seasoned wood in the three centre rows, the wetter wood in the two rows at the gable end, and dry wood in-filled in between. I always segregate some of the wetter (relatively speaking) wood and draw on it for overnight burns. The long range plan is to stack all the N/S rows (7 cords) into the shed soon after splitting rather than have them sit out all summer. The E/W wood (5 cords) that I will in-fill will be the last in, therefore it will also be the first out, so I will still have to stack it twice, once out in the open and then re-stack it late in the Fall.
