With the second half of our metal shed in place, it was time to get it ready to hold firewood. First we added some more metal panels to close off the sides. (and eventually the back) Then we added a bed of sand to give us a nice level base.A couple of years ago, I got an amazing deal on these really cool industrial pavers. These will allow for our firewood to be stored off the ground and the holes will allow for drainage.The big plastic tote in the center will hold kindling. We will have two “seasons” worth of firewood stored alternating between the “dry” side and the “next year’s” wood side. The shed will have walls in the front with a center entry. Jeff can’t wait to start filling it up with firewood.
Now that we no longer need our 20 foot metal shed to store lumber (milled from our own trees), we thought we would double the usefulness of that big shed.
With the help of a counter-rotating metal cutting circular saw, and of course, Dozy.The first half nearly in place behind our pump house. This will become Dozy’s new home and a covered workspace. We will end up putting up a solid back and a large door on the front. The other half of the big shed will get moved to the west side of our building site (near the septic tank), to become our firewood storage.
Here I am pulling the second half of the shed over to where it will become our firewood storage. Unfortunately, Dozy broke down before we got it into place and will be a couple of weeks before Dozy is up and running again.
