Building a storage shed for wood can be advantageous for several reasons: it allows you to store your firewood properly. When firewood is dry, your fire will be warmer, smoke far less, and you'll burn less wood at a time -- and a shed with good airflow that is slightly elevated will ensure your firewood stays dry. Not to mention that a storage shed will ensure your woodpile is neat and tidy!
This set of instructions will produce a woodshed capable of holding about one cord of wood.
If you have the opportunity to get your wood cut at the hardware store, this is a great time-saver. If not, start by measuring out and cutting your wood down to what is described in the sections below.

This entire woodshed costs less than $250 to build and will take one afternoon's work for two people, whereas a pre-made woodshed can cost $1,000 or more. If you can use leftovers from other projects, it can cost even less! Ensure yourself a cozy winter with this one-weekend DIY.
