    I know i dont have as much ahead as some of you but im working on this. Been in this house 4 winters and this is 2nd with a insert this is the first year for all year too.

    Here are a few pics of this year before burning started, summer obviously with the leaves. Im gonna add on 9 more feet so i can space the rows out and try and get at least a year ahead.

    One reason i built it so high is so i could drive my tractor into it if i wanted when i have it at the house in town.

    Im sure yours is much bigger and fuller!

    But i built that shed with tin i got fro free from helping a co-worker take down the shed. He gave me the shed in pieces for my help. enough tin for the roof and the future 9ft extention. enough treated 2x4s also for the rafters, also all the tin screw from shed. Only think i bought to build it was treated 1x4s for stickers, 2 4x4x8 posts , 2 4x4x10 posts, 4 bags of quickrete (i think?) adn the 2x8 x16 headers.

    The extention hopefully will come before spring. Will be a 9ft addition to the left. Will need the posts headers rafters and stickers.

    What did you write on the Private Property sign? If you are close enough to be reading this, you are likely being watched through my scope?

    "No Stealing". Hadnt been out there in a couple weeks,noticed one day in April 2010 there was almost 1 p/u load missing at the back on north end (far right in pic).At the time parents didnt have any gate etc across the very steep winding gravel driveway.We believe it was neighbor 1/8th mile south.When they bought the property 31 yrs ago from the older farm couple who lived there (since both deceased) it was in the contract that as long as parents lived there,the property owners to the south were to provide water from their well,since this didnt have any.

    Thinking they just pulled up & helped themselves.Dad & I since fixed that,there's a heavy chain/cable 'gate' with padlock across the drive,about 1/2 way up from the road.Just outside of the utility pole,so REC meter reader can do their thing then back down the driveway when done.When propane is delivered for that tiny house once a year,parents meet the guy out there & have the driveway open.Too many chances for vandals & thieves to cause mayhem when no one is home,since its pretty isolated & 7 miles from nearest small town.The cable/padlock at least will slow people down,they cant cut across the yard in a 4 wheel vehicle either without getting stuck or high-centered on a stump & other obstacles either muhahaha

    This one holds 20 rows, 7.5' x 9'. Predominate winds hit it on the end facing. Works really well as you can pull/load from either end.

    I'd have to refer to the 'Castle Law' here in PA if someone came and took my wood. Because I consider that pile of wood (with my blood, sweat, and tears in it) an extension of my family.......would probably shoot someone if they took a single piece of it!!.....lol....

    I think all full woodsheds are pretty awesome. I'm joining the envious group here. I think we need a wood shed design crew so we can all have one. Then we will need a c/s/s group to get them full.

    I just showed the wife some pictures and she just rolled her eyes. It is on my list of projects that I hope to get done in the spring time. I built a tool shed a couple of years ago and now have my eyes on one of these. The problems is that my land slopes where I want it. Ilike blue's shed design. I like how it is deep and the roof design. I also like being able to store/hide the trailer on the side.

    Nice work everyone. Keep the pics coming for those of us that need/want one.

    This went up in 2008. It'll never match the beauties shown here, but it was a fun project and the first time at building something like this. I thought it was done, but I like it so much that I am now considering adding another bay this summer.

    Here's a picture of ours, and a video of the boys filling her up.
    I'm sure glad we built it, makes storing firewood a lot easier, and neater.
