If you want to store firewood in a professional manner and to keep them protected from bad weather, you should consider building a basic wood shed. After choosing the best design for your needs, we recommend you to buy quality lumber, such as pressure-treated, as the components will be exposed to harsh weather conditions.
In order to get the job done in a professional manner, we recommend you to build the corner legs from one 2×4 slat and one 2×2 post. Continue the woodworking project by attaching the 1×6 slats to both sides of the shed, as shown in the image.
Taking into account we want to show you how to build a basic shelter for firewood, the roof structure is equally simple. Place a spirit level on top of the front and back beams to check if they are horizontal.
As compared to using plywood and asphalt shingles, the 1×6 cedar slats will protect the whole structure from water damage while enhancing the look of the construction.
PRO TIP: Applying a few coats of paint will not only enhance the look of the shed, but it will also protect the wooden components from water damage.
