The woodshed is in the FRONT yard. Right in front of the stove room, 20 ft. away. It's somewhat shielded from road view, but can be seen quite easily. That happens to be the absolute best place for the finished (dry) firewood, so that's where it's going. I would have to "die on that hill" before putting it anywhere else, because it wouldn't make sense to put it some other place. If I could have put it closer, I would have, just to make it easier to get splits to the house in the dead of winter when there's over a foot of snow on the ground and it's 5 deg. outside. I have a pretty nice yard. It's not manicured like some, but nice. The woodshed is a nicer accent than the 16 stacks I've had sitting there for the past 4 years, which took up MUCH more space. Form and function in balance. Maybe I should ask what color she'd like it to be.
