Nice! I like the roof, especially if some sun gets through.
Why did you close the back (and the floor)? I kept my back open so that if I don't finish a bay that year, I can fill it up and next year start with the older stuff in the back. (And I kept spaces between the floor boards for more ventilation, but maybe you have more wind going through than I have.)
Thanks!! It took me 2 months little bit everyday after work, and I got twins that are 4 and they enjoyed helping out where they can. It's my first time and I'm happy with the outcome.I like it. I'm equally impressed with the rock work and the fill to make a level spot on the slope. That looks good.
There were plenty of beers had while building it! I filled one bay and half of the other yesterday in a full day work detail.They look like 1x8’s with a gap in between on the floor, definitely plenty of air flowing through that bad boy. Looks great, way too pretty to store wood. Might have to leave 1 bay open for drinking beers and watching the wood dry.
I filled it up yesterday....man that was alot of work. Total dimensions are 8 x 12. 100sq ft is the town limit with out permit and increase in property taxes.
Yes, I'm in Northern Westchester and the code is under 100sq ft per structure. I was thinking of attempting a fully enclosed shed next year but for gardening equipment storage. If I out grow this space for wood, I might consider another. Thanks.is it possible (without added taxes) to build a second one of 96 sqft...? It is really nice to be able to season hardwoods 3 years. Having another one allows you to cycle through one bay a year and have 3-4 years of seasoning. The less water you'll have to boil off in your stove the more heat in your home and less creosote in your chimney.
I didnt pour the post. I got 2 yards of gravel and placed 4 " on the area then used tuff blocks on top to hold the 4x4 vertical and it hold 2x6 horizontally. So far it's holding up.I will be building one soon too as big as I can without a permit. Did you pour concrete for the corners? trying to get ideas but my yard is pure ledge in the back.
That is really nice one of best I've seen, lacking one major component, WOOD! Let's see it when filled, that should be a sight.I didnt pour the post.
