Rustic Firewood Storage Shed

8 Materials
3 Hours

As we get closer and closer to cooler weather, that means we get to make more fires!! Yayyyy!! Since we have time this summer, we decided to build something to keep the wood dry! No more wet wood! So Billy and I set out to make a firewood shed that was sure to keep our toasty fires burning strong. Plus I absolutely love any chance I get to zest with Billy- I love doing projects with him

First we measured out how big we wanted our shed to be and cut the wood with this all in mind…
Our base was 5 feet long and our 4 posts were measured so the front two were taller than the back two to create a slope for water to drain. The front posts were 4.5ft and the back posts were a 1/2 inch shorter.

Next we wanted to enclose the whole structure so we used old fence posts to make walls with a gap between each post….

But of course we had to make it look good from the front too…

For the roof we used corrugated steel and cut the pieces by hand with metal cutting sheers

We absolutely love the outcome! Feels like we added some farmhouse, rustic charm to the outside of our house!

    Ummm...Shouldn't the ribs & gutters of the galvi roof be from the front to the back of your wood shelter? So the rain would sheet off....

    I really like this project! I also appreciate all of the comments from concerned readers. I plan to build it out away from the house. Can you tell me how deep you made your shed?
