Where the buffalo roam & the skies are not cloudy all day
Perfect wood shed
So the the whole no trees thing is because you cut them down? :lol:
The pictures are really beautiful thanks for posting those.
Now thats a little slice of heaven right there....beautiful shots, Redbear!!
The sunsets are really nice, nothing like shooting your elk from the front porch every winter! I have to drive about 40mins to work-about 45 miles away, considering it took me that long to drive less than 15miles when i was going to school in Richmond its not too bad.
I have to drive into the mountains to get my wood, few ornamentals around the house, not too hard to get wood though just pick a trail and stop at the beetle kill.
just love to see pics of anything done well, and especially wood stacking
Not only - do I have shed envy, I also have wood envy.
Awesome pieces of work. Just saying.
Cptoneleg- what are the dimensions of your shed? my shed is a spittin image of yours-5x10- wish i made it bigger! may add on. my front is open-i use a mesh tarp to keep the weather out and let the wind blow thru. art
8' x 16' easily holds what I need for a season
Beautiful sheds. I like looking at these woodshed threads. When I built and filled my shed a couple of summers ago it was so liberating from tarps and rows. Good job guys.
Here is mine its 36x8 with 2 feet of snow on it. wish we had some snow this year. its been a warm muddy mess this winter.
Nice shed Glenn, and a great photo! I'm right there with ya, it has been a swampy nightmare of a winter here too....I sure miss the big snowstorms!
My shed that's about 99% complete from last autumn project. Stacked about 4.5 cords in there and use about 1.25 cord thus far. Also has my 4' tractor mower deck and 32" snow blower in there.
Wow...pretty! I hope you don't mind, I borrowed two and played with them in an HDR program I have. Haven't had much time to use it because I haven't been taking many pics lately, with buying the Cottage.
I'm glad you like the pictures, the spring and summer pictures my wife does are the best sellers, we get alot of rainbows in the spring and the sunsets are nice. She gets them printed on canvas and frames them, we sent some to family members at fisrt as gifts then their friends wanted some ect, kinda funny how things work. Those pictures i posted were just taken on my phone a few days ago.
These pictures don't really show the wood rows, but a house lot in town does not afford much room for the stacking of wood outside. The wood shed is on top of the 24' x 10' boiler room that was added to the back end of the house. The wood shed is cat proof and can hold 10 cords and the boiler room can take 1 1/2 cords divided into two rows. The prevailing winds blow through the rows from either side. The wood enters the boiler room through the small door behind the pickup and that door can just be seen above the left pile in the boiler room.
The floor of the wood shed is Alaska Milled Douglas Fir 5"x 10" on 12" centers with tongue and grove plywood on top.
Funny, winter is one of my fav times in the mountains. When we decided to buy a new house, it was between a farm, a place on the lake, or trying to move to the Adirondacks. Couldn't find a farm in our price range (especially when you figure in taxes-we looked at a 20 acre place with a falling down barn and marginal house with 9k in taxes). Couldn't find jobs "inside the blue line" (in the actual park, we wanted to be in the middle or high peaks areas) so we couldn't move to the 'Dacks. So...we found the Cottage. And now that we heat exclusively with wood (the VF isn't really set up to be the full time exclusive heat source), we won't be visiting the mountains in the winter any time soo again. I imagine spring is lovely there too though, with the flowers in the fields and the snow still on the peaks.
Great looking sheds! Here's a pic of mine....holds a little better than 4.5 cords.
