I have designed these simple firewood shed plans so you can shelter your logs and keep them dry for increased heating efficiency. This is compact shed so don’t expect it to hold lots of cords of wood.

This shed is sturdy and the floor is set on cider blocks, to keep the firewood dry. The gable roof has generous overhangs for good protection against the elements.

Invest in high quality materials, such as cedar, pine or redwood, as the bench will be exposed to all kinds of weather. Apply a few coats of paint over the components, to enhance their appearance and to protect them from bad weather.

– 6 pieces of 2×4 lumber – 108″ long 10 – 60 sq ft of metal sheets ROOFING The first step of the project is to build the floor frame for the firewood shed.

Lay the components on a level surface annd align the edges flush.

Select the location for the firewood shed and remove the vegetation layer.

Lay 6 cider blocks under the floor frame so you lift it from the ground and protect the firewood from moisture. You can place a piece of wood between the boards to create consistent gaps.

Cut the components at the right dimensions and drill pilot holes through the plates. Fit the wall frames to the floor and plumb them with a spirit level. Drill pilot holes through the bottom plates and insert 3 1/2″ screws into the skids.

Lock them to the plates and to the top beam with 3 1/2″ screws, after drilling pilot holes.

Center the purlins to the top of the gable roof, making sure you have equal overhangs on both sides. Drill pilot holes and insert 2 1/2″ screws to lock the purlins to the rafters.

First of all, you could fill the holes and gaps with wood filler and smooth the surface with medium-grit sandpaper. This 4×8 firewood shed is simple to build and it is also beautiful, so that it will become a focus point of your garden. If you have enjoyed the free project, we recommend you to share it with your friends, by using the social media widgets.
