^ That's what I got to hear tonight when we had our first load of firewood delivered. YES!



We heat our house with wood and have had some kind of sketchy storage situations. The former owners had their wood kind of far from the house and stacked on pallets covered with tarps. When we moved it closer, the pallet and tarp situation lost any appeal... it looked terrible right up by the house and is a pain in the butt to deal with with lots of snow, or worse, melted snow that's turned to ice.

In-progress shot:


So, I built this wood shed! I did about 85-90% of the building all by myself! I got 0% help from this dog. Or the other one.



I wrote up a long blog post about this project with lots of photos of most stages as they were completed.

I could live in it.
But in my climate, not with 3 or 4 feet of snow!

I should invite you to build one in my backyard.  Smiley

Most excellent!!! I have the identical situation here!  Tarped woodpile that needs to come closer to the house. My brother mentioned he'd build one for me but let's face it, I can't wait til I'm 80.  I would love to hear more about how you built it. I'm running out of time before the snow starts blowing!

Very nice!
In my neighborhood, that's a rental unit--probably get $300 a month. 
You'd have to put a blue tarp on the roof to get top dollar, though; it rains a lot here.

Thanks everyone! I know that some of the locals who have seen it think it's "too nice" for a woodshed, both with aesthetic details and sturdiness and that they might shake their heads and think "greenhorns" when they leave, BUT I would rather overbuild than ever.build.one.again. It was very satisfying, but also very frustrating and physically challenging and took about a month overall with various interruptions and logistical issues, along with the physical challenges.

Most excellent!!! I have the identical situation here!  Tarped woodpile that needs to come closer to the house. My brother mentioned he'd build one for me but let's face it, I can't wait til I'm 80.  I would love to hear more about how you built it. I'm running out of time before the snow starts blowing!

Don't tell TheManFlesh, but this ended up costing a bit more than a similar sized, pre-made model from Costco (delivered) in their latest ad! One of the "helps" I received was a plan sketched up by our Renaissance Handyman, Nick. Which I no longer have. Sad  I am in the middle of writing up a blog post about building it that will be mostly photos of all the stages, so maybe that will give you a better idea. If I had a pneumatic nailer and a second set of hands more often, this would have gone A LOT faster and less frustratingly, but the nailer might have  made a bigger difference than the hands.

The window type panels in the roof are a good idea.

That is a mighty fine woodshed!  We are the wood on the pallets covered by the tarp types ourselves - a bit of a pain, but less of a pain than dealing with the city, permits, inspectors, etc of building a woodshed.  I wish we could build something for the wood.

But, speaking from experience, are you not aware that the primary role of dogs in renovations is that of a supervisory type?  They are the site supervisors and foremen, constantly monitoring the quality of the workmanship and give the ultimate stamp of approval or disapproval of the progress of work and the finished product.  Inspectors bedamned - it's the dog's approval that was needed  Grin !




Here is Toby inspecting the temporary stairs when DH raised the roof and put the second story on our bungalow.  When a job is finished for the day, he would go, sniff at all the new things, and give an approving wag and lick to the workers if he felt it was a job well done.  He was the same with my crafting - though sometimes if it stunk of something, like sealer spray, he would not give the final approval Sad

What do you have as roofing?

Thanks y'all! The roofing consists of 3 galvanized metal panels (3' wide) and 2 polycarbonate panels to let in light. The old school, fiberglass panels would also work and would be cheaper, but more brittle and less of the look I was going for.

No permits needed here for this! Had we run electricity to it for light we would have, but we did not because of the polycarb roof panels. Also. because it's a woodshed. Wink

And yes, that dog in  particular is a HORRENDOUS supervisor! She either ignores me completely, messes with the materials, or shouts incomprehensible and inaccurate instructions... usually after sneaking up behind me. The other dog just gives stuff a sniff then goes about doing her own job, harassing the squirrels.

I would love to hear more about how you built it. I'm running out of time before the snow starts blowing!

Here is my blog post about it, there are lots of in-progress shots that will give you more of an idea of how it was built.
