The wood store, each bay lasts us about 1 year. Although its probably been a popular topic before (?) just thought I would like to start a thread to see differant designs.

Nice shed Angus. There are a few good size rounds in there on the left. Do you burn those rounds just as they are? What do you burn in? What type of wood you got in there?

its empty now but will load it up prior to winter. Can only get 3 cord in it but that will be the majority of my wood needed for the winter. If I can free up some time I will put a lean to on the far side to add another 3-4 cord.

Jake, It looked like you have quite a bit of slab wood in the one section of your shed........Do you have a sawmill around to get that stuff from?

Mine's not pretty but I can stack three rows 7' high. I don't have the skids on it yet but the plan is to be able to drag the empty one out and drag a full one in.

I got 6 cords stacked in here, good enough for 2 years. I'm thinking next year I might try and fit 3 years worth inside if I can cut my wood consumption down a bit by switching my primary burning stove from the basement to the stove on the main floor.

I finished the shed last month, then the heat wave hit so it's not full. Working on filling it up a little at a time.

come on now Jake, you must be bashful
Those are some pretty stacks

I just put the pretty wood in the woodshed on display . . . the ugly-looking wood I leave outside or toss way up on top out of sight. ;)

Actually, I'm not seeing much or any slab wood in those pics -- most of those are splits. I tend to split smaller.

That said . . . I do burn some slabs every year. Some of them I split up by hand for kindling and some I burn in the shoulder season or I put them to use to get a fire going again from coals. My uncle has a small sawmill that he "plays" with and is always sawing out lumber -- most of which he probably will never use . . . but it keeps him busy and happy . . . and I get slabs.

Thanks Gasifier. Its nearly all Wych or Scots Elm that got diseased, I ve an abundance of it. The bigger rounds I usuaully put at the front, and they go into our Morso, though they are not that big. We have a Jotul f118 so next winter I will cut longer and split thinner.
