As the cold months of winter approach, there is nothing like knowing you have plenty of firewood to keep you warm all winter long. One problem is firewood takes up a lot of space. Do you need a storage firewood shed or are there other good ways to store your firewood?

One of the most important things in storing firewood is to keep it dry. If you store it outside you can cover it with a tarp or plastic sheeting. This can keep the rain off but it can also hold moisture in and encourage the wood to decay. You can leave the sides uncovered so the air can circulate but then the wood on the side will get wet. That is if the storm doesn’t blow the tarp off to rip it to shreds.

Tarps are also not very convenient when you go out to bring in some…
