I would put up the boards green on the sides. Than when each one drys there will be a small air space for the wind to blow through. I would be in some nice gravel and get it up in the air some to keep you out of the mud in the spring.I also would try to put some sections in it. At least 2 or 3. By the way,about how many cords big you you need it too be?
beenthere:Concerning the following "I've discovered the coon koolaid which diminishes the population pronto."Could you PM me that formula as I have an invasion of them and rodents.If you have a formula for chipmunks, squirrels, moles, and mice I'd be interested in that also.Thanks in advance,Gerald
Random thoughts on an excellent topic....Ideally, you would have space for two heating season's worth of wood, if your burning oak. That way, you are always ahead at a minimum of one year's fuel. So figure how much you think you'd burn in a given year, add a couple of cords to that, then double that number and that's the number of cords that I would store in my ideal shed.Wood put up that far ahead of time does not need cross stacking or significant space between stacks, as long as adequate air flow exists and time is on your side.My ideal Shed would be a pole barn shed with trussed roof, as beenthere has stated. The wood will not look weathered, if it's not exposed to the sun, but it sure will dry.As far as the raccoons, I have a dog, and their bathroom is obviously somewhere else.
Slab Slicer for a foundation have you considered used railroad ties or telephone poles?The last telephone poles my dad put in only lasted 36 years. (summer of 1965 to the fall of 2011) Gerald
