- Outdoor log storage shelter thingies. What have you got? How to build etc?
I’ve been asked to build an outdoor log shelter for a someone who has just had a log burner installed in her home. I’m presuming it’ll just be up against her side garage wall. Does anyone have any ideas or pictures of their log storage solutions to give me inspiration? I don’t think it has to be anything too flashy. Also what timber would be best to use? Many thanks.Posted 5 years agocrankboyMember
I can’t link to photobucket without some annoying BMW add strobe effect but basically mine is made out of pallets for the base a series of scrap wood uprights and topped with a sloping ply roof covered with left over roofing rubber the roof has some wooden battens around the edges and cross ways the resulting shallow trays have a gravel poor soil mix into which I have planted sedums and wildflowers . The exposed face has old pondliner curtains to keep driven rain off the wood.
The pallets keep the wood off the ground the roof keeps the weather off the shonky structure let’s the air flow through.Posted 5 years agomuenchen1Member
Recycled pallet solution: Lowest cost solution I have used is to get some pallets, ideally of the equal size. Put one down as the base then strip (hacksaw the nails as usually end up destroying the wood trying to remove the nails) four others to just leave the flat part the pallet ( where the ‘contents’ is normally placed). Use these four to make three sides and a roof. Screw together, cover roof with felt. I let the pallet dimensions drive the size of the store, my neighbour chose to strip his pallets completly and use the planks to make exact size he wanted, plus then painted them with fence paint.Posted 5 years ago
I did originally rapid build a pallet woodstore using five whole pallets lashed together with old inner tubes- quick and dirty but got the wood stashed and lasted a winter.
+1 for ski’s folding triangles, Very neat.
Here’s one of my woodshed building/cake baking threads. With enough photos to get an idea of construction technique.

If she is a special laydee, maybe something along these lines will float her boat.
I used telegraph poles, scaffold boards and salvaged slates.
This one was made from our old water tank with drain and vent holes cut into it.
A woodshed doesn’t need to fancy. Use what you can find and get creative.
STW woodshed thread law states, you must post pics of how it turns out, and if possible updates of the building process. Good luck.

Mc how is that wood getting on compared to your other stores?
The wood in the slated shed has been there since 2009. I stacked it to well to burn it. I’ve not tried anything from the water tank either. I’ve not got a moisture meter either.
Shame about your Holz Hausen.
Joshvegas and I built a second one.
Stoner – I chose a pattern from my extensive collection of Geordie Jumpers.
