This is our firepit shed used the keep the stuff for our camp fires in a dry place without having to walk all the way to the barn to get things. I used 30 yr old treated lumber( from the pool deck that we removed) for the floor and the frame and the door frame. I had to buy treated plywood for the sides and the door and some metal roofing to cover it with. I built the walls in the driveway and covered them with the sheathing and then put them up because it was hard to maneuver around in the trees
It is meant to be rustic and to blend in with the pine trees so I did not stain or paint it. It has a solar light for at night when it gets pretty dark in there to find things. In the winter my son in law stores his garden tractor in there. The door has a lock on it for security. I had the camera out so I thought I’d show you another wood project!

It looks alright and now you won’t have to walk so much.

You might consider a “clear” coating of some type so the wood lasts more than one winter. Even a marine spar varnish would work. Just sayin.
