Yeah, I know this isn’t a woodworking project, per se. More of a construction project. But since it does involve wood, firewood in this case, I thought I’d put it up here. I’m very happy with the end result. The floor framing and the top of the posts were tied together with 2X lumber. The rest of it (posts, rafters, ridge beam) were just landscaping timbers. I chose them so it would look somewhat rustic, maybe even a little log cabin(ish). That’s also why I chose a cedar shake roof.
I left a space open in the center for a small shed to store some tools, electric log splitter, bird seed, etc. The ceiling of that area is protected by heavy metal mesh to keep the critters out looking for a free meal. I also catch a black snake or two when I can and release them in the area as secruity guards….:).
I also put a slide show together and posted it on YouTube where you can see additional pics.
