    Added on to my yard/wood shed this Spring and just got some wood in it for the winter. Had a little help from my grandson.

    About 3/4 of a cord outside under the roof, and I have a little over a cord inside (on the right, short side, addtion) The addition on the right was supposed to be entirely for wood storage, but I bought a 4 weeler and so that cut it down quite a bit. Never enough room. %-P The picture on the right although turned 90 degrees, is my grandson inside with the wood stacks he just helped Papa move.

    He is a very good helper and he loves to help his Papa, and Papa loves to have him with him. He will stick with me for however long it takes. I can't wait for him to get a little bigger and maybe help save Papa's back :) Here is another picture giving me the thumbs up (with a half acorn stuck on his thumb...don't know what was up with that lol)

    I like your trailer. Nice and tall, big tires, easy to weave through traffic in the back yard.
    What is the small handle for, on the top front corner?
    Is the front wall opening for putting a tree / log into?

    It is great in the back yard. I like it better than a wheel barrow. It is like a kids wagon, with a long front handle to pull it with and the opening is for the handle in the up position to rest in. The "small handle on the top front corner"? I am not sure what you are seeing but both sides, and the front and rear have break-over latches that when released, the sides fold down. I bought it from Northern Tools and beefed it up with plate aluminium inside the wire mesh sides....made it real sturdy. Here is a link to it. http://www.northerntool.com/shop/to...=mode+matchallpartial&Dx=mode+matchallpartial
