I’ve now come to the conclusion that I simply MUST build a dedicated storage building for my ever-growing supply of lumber. Currently, the pile is a haphazard mess that is taking up half of a 10×25 storage shed. I can’t get to most of it and the stuff I can get to is still next to impossible to sort through or remove.
Now, the question – has anyone constructed a building that has the sole purpose of storing lumber?
It has to have the following attributes:
Keeps the lumber dry
I know, if this building existed, we would ALL have one. ;-) But, I DO want to get close to my list of needs…..
I am thinking about building a rather thin, long structure with a central ridge that allows me to stack lumber on both sides of it – the sides would be semi-protected with kind of a hip-roof that comes down a foot or so.
This may be changed to two rows of racks so I can have store lumber on both sides of each row.
Anyone have any ideas – plans would be even better!
