This is a wood shed I built to hold 4 cords of wood, a few years ago. In our cooler clime it’s nice to have a second source of heat. Our primary source is electric, not quite adequate and expensive. The shed is 8ft by 12ft with a 4ft by 4ft piece for my wife’s gardening tools. I built it for less than $1,000 with scrap 12” by 12” timbers that came up on our beach after a storm. The inside is post and beam construction with vertical siding allowed to shrink for drying the wood. I made the hexagonal window and the rectangular was given to me. The roof is a 12/12 pitch. I can back my garden tractor to the door to keep the wood box full on the back porch. As a matter of interest the fire wood is now around $200 per cord, I burn about 5 cords per winter.

I agree with Rj, Add on, turn it into a cabin, put your woodheater in there and you wouldn’t have to carry wood. lol. Great job.

Great work! For a lot of people that’s about the amount of room they get for their woodshop!!

Great looking shed Jack. I love the rustic look and I’m sure it’s well built. That’s why we do what we do. And to think you found that lumber… WOW!
