    I built mine bymyself in a day. Well i did not put the tin on i think but that was only like another hour and i also dug the post holes a previous day, but with my tractor and the neighbors augor, so i had more time driving the tractor the mile to and from his house to borrow it with my tractor than using it. Also cause my tin was repurposed (was off one of those tin storage sheds like you buy at Lowes or on the road side somewhrere) and i was not smart enough to measure the old holes to reuse them. I had alread got the stickers on it and the holes did not match up so i had a bucket of that roof tar/rubber and had to goop globs of that stuff on about 150 holes!!! That took me an hour or so id say.

    But if i busted my but i could have dont the whole thing easy in a day if i got an earlier start. it being witertime did not help in daylight hours either. And mine is not like one of the fancy ones either. I have siver and white tin for the roof as the shed was white with a silver roof. Silver is heavier gauge.

    Very nice shed. Metal roof & lattice on the sides is a nice upgrade :)
    Good idea using bolts on the roof 2X6s.
    Nice thing about the design, it's easy to add another section to it.
    I buried my pillar blocks so they'd be anchored & froze in when the winter winds blow &
    put the pallets on them. Didn't want it to fly away. :)

    Yours & Carbon-Liberator's are very good "woodshed standard" to use as templates for "How to build a woodshed"

    Here it is. The long narrow part on the right is full of wood inside. The rest is storage for all my stuff.

    Im wondering if some of these sheds with the three sides and the wood stacked tightly to the roof may account for some of your long dry times, like the 3 year for oak.

    The one with the opening on the corner and the overhead light in it, seems really had to get good ventilation in there. zi would worry about my wood drying very well in some of these.

    If you live in Texas or Oregon, I hear the wood is dry before you have time to get it and split and stacked in the shed. I stopped stacking inside our traditional 3 sided shed in the Adirondacks before the wood was dry because it molded the inside of the building.

    Was thinking it would do that too. I hav had wood mold in a pile in the summer if not stacked, also had it mold in the truck when i left it for a week or so.

    Very nice shed, huge & stuffed full, The vertical boards make it look "wood-shed" like.
    Might do the back side of mine with slabs I just like the look :)
    Nice trailers too.
    What's that thing with skis on the back side, something for snow?? Do you get snow LOL :lol:
    great pics

    Don't worry. My shed has very good ventilation, as the siding boards are not tight together and the floor is elevated and spaced as well. But, beyond all that, I never expect to season wood from green inside my shed. My wood seasons out in the open elsewhere on my property and only goes into the shed when it's ready to burn during the upcoming season. Besides all that, I live in the Central Oregon high desert country, where the humidity is very low and all I have access to are softwoods, which season relatively quickly. My shed works just fine for me just the way it is in my situation, as I'm sure all the other great sheds shown here do for their owners. Rick

    Living in OR I can attest to this. Before I built my shed we did the whole tarp thing on top of pallets and there would be some mold/fungus here and there but I tried hard to keep rows separate (single row stacks) and only partially covered to promote airflow. Now with the shed I still stack in single rows with 6-8in gap between rows, don't not stack up all the way to the rafters, and designed the shed to keep all 4 sides open w/raised floor (per the wisdom on this forum) to promote air flow all around and underneath. No mold/fungus thus far that I can see. Funny enough while I was constructing the shed all my friends, in-laws, neighbors all asked, in their conventional wisdom, if I was going to sheath/enclose the entire thing. I said no and argued the position of promoting air-flow...some understood it, some did not.

    My shed is not ventilated. See post #39. I only put wood ready to burn in at the beginning of the season. I don't want ventilation because the wood shed isn't for the wood, it is for me!!!!.....so I am warm and cozy when I go to get wood for the house. I don't want the elements in my wood shed :coolgrin:
