In the end, you should choose a firewood storage solution that is based on your needs and abilities.


Building a woodshed in your backyard is ideal for storing firewood in a professional manner. In addition, this will also ease the drying out process, as the air will circulate properly and keep the firewood is a good condition.
In order to get a professional result and to protect the wooden structure from rot, you should place the joists on several concrete blocks, as in the free plans. Afterwards, cut the corner posts at the right size, making sure the top of them are cut at 30?. Cut the wooden boards at the right size and secure them to the joists, using decking screws.
As you might imagine, you need to lock all the boards together with 1×4 braces, wich will also enhance the look of the wood shed.
Getting a neat look is possible, even you are not a professional builder, but you should pay attention to details. As you can easily notice in the image, you need to place the rafters equally spaced, as to support the weight of the roof properly. Open sides or slatted sides provide air circulation which is especially important if your wood still needs to season.
In addition, if you follow our tips and instructions, you could even build a rustic shed that will add character to your backyard.


Building a back wall is not necessary but it would most certainly help, as it will protect the firewood against heavy snow or rain. Drill pilot holes trough the rim joists, to prevent the wood from splitting, and insert 3” screws into the posts. Make sure you countersink the head of the screws, otherwise the shed won’t have a nice appearance. Afterwards, place the panels into place, align them at both ends and anchor them to the posts with 3” screws. A woodshed can take many shapes and designs, so you should decide from the very beginning what you want from such a construction.
Nevertheless, if you want to save money and time you could build just the structure and add the side panels.
