I've finally got sick and tired of the constant struggle of dealing with tarps and have messy wood piles, so I've embarked on a woodshed building mission, this is pic heavy and I hope you all enjoy it

Clearing out an old driveway garden that was once a great producer of thorns, weeds and my favorite... poison ivy

Putting in quarry process in layers and tamping in between to make sure I have a solid working base, laying the cement blocks and making sure they are leveled & square with each other before locking them in with more quarry process, laying pressure treated 2x6's to make sure the foot print isn't to big

Started the second "bin" this week, I've been able to work 2 hrs a day after work, I should have the whole roof and over hang done by tonight, and the shed loaded up by mid morning Saturday.
After this is completed I'll have 2 more bins to go to complete my mission of having 8 cords under permanent cover

scag 48" walk behind lol, when I'm not processing wood I'm mowing the lawn..love my lines. The shed is 10ft wide by 5ft deep, the front opening is 8ft high and tapered to 7ft in the back (technically 6ft 6" but the curb / garden is 6" higher than the driveway)

Tge shed is facing north west, our predominant "dry wind" comes out of the north west here, but I'm missing the sun, oh well can't have it all

Those are beautiful, Kenny. 4 cords, ready to roll. No more fighting tarps and hoping that you have dry wood when you need it. Superb execution in the right place for your property. I hope to have such excellence here one day.

Thank you so much, it took me 5 years before I decided this was the spot, seeing some of the shed builds here looked pretty intimidating, im not really the best builder or anything, but I took my time, slowed my pace and came up with this.

I know what you mean, I'm still trying to figure out where to put mine, and it's been about 5 years. I have no great locations, and the ones that are passable have trees that will be coming down in the next few years, when time and energy permits. Until then, stacks and tarps. You won't be missing that!

How many more of those beauties are you gonna build? That's gonna be a sweet wall of wood.
Just 2 more, I want to have 8 cords ready to rock and roll, I'm also thinking of adding a 6ft in closed section to put the garbage cans in there, I keep them in the garage atm because we have beat issues here

Plus, he's probably surveying the mouse hunting potential of a covered woodpile.
