Check out this beautifully built firewood shed. It is 8′ x 16′. It holds over 5 cords of firewood. A cord of firewood is 4’x4’x8′, 128 cu. ft. The front door on this firewood shed is open to allow fresh air to flow up through the pressure treated floor boards and through the firewood. This helps properly season the firewood to ensure that it will be ready for burning. The roof overhang on the front of the shed provides some protection for the front opening.
Using a firewood shed is the perfect way to season your firewood investment and keep it from rotting. Firewood should be seasoned for 6 months to a year, depending on the type of wood, so that it will burn well.
You can check out more photos of this firewood shed at our shed builders photo gallery.

This modern shed was built in Arkansas. It has had several design modifications including the foundation and siding details. The windows on either side of the doorway were left off the front elevation. These shed modifications show how you can customize the shed to fit your specific needs and design ideas.
The owner / builder said: “Wanted to share a few pics from my shed project. Bought the plans from you a while back. Made a few modifications, such as the cedar exterior trim and I installed a sliding barn door. Plans were great! This was my first building project and I think it turned out pretty well.”

This 8×8 shed is the essence of backyard storage sheds. It has a home built door and a 6′-5″ wall height which allows the walls to be sheeted with a single sheet of siding. The shed plans also include optional shed design for the shed door to be installed on the wall with the roof eve. The shed builder opted to build the shed using pressure treated wood floor joists and floor sheeting built over a gravel bed. This allows the shed floor to be closer to ground level.

This beautifully built and finished firewood shed was built in North Carolina! It is finished with wood stain and brown corrugated fiber/asphalt roofing! The 4×6 firewood shed stores just over 3/4 a cord of wood! The floor is designed so that air can move from the cool shaded space below the floor and up through the wood to the warmer area on top of the wood and out the front opening. This promotes well seasoned wood and reduces the chance of mold and rot. The front opening is designed to make it easy to access the wood.
The owner/builder said: “Here are pictures from my 4×6 shed build from your plans. I enjoyed the project, learned plenty, and it gave me the confidence to take on a larger storage shed in the near future. Thank you!”

This generator enclosure was built to house a propane generator. It has two sets of doors to allow plenty of access to the generator. The single end door is a great way to pull the generator in and out of the shed and the double front doors are used to change out the propane tanks and access the generator controls.
The owner/builders said:
“Hi, Please find enclosed pictures of our generator shed that we built with your plans. We are very proud! We put stones around the outside to keep the fresh dirt down. The metal roof is hinged and opens up too. … Your videos and personal support have made these projects possible.

This shed was built in a single day by a group doing a service project. It is our 4×8 lean to shed plan which is one of our most popular shed plan styled and sizes. You can view plans for the 4×8 shed plans here. The lean to storage shed was built using traditional framing methods including 2×4 stud walls laid out at 16 inches on center, grooved plywood siding, pre-hung doors, asphalt shingle roof and a framed floor. The pressure treated shed foundation rails were laid on crushed gravel bed to provide good drainage.
All of our lean to and modern shed plans are designed so the the front and side walls of the shed are the same height and the tall wall is taller. Building a shed this way removes the need to frame the side walls with a sloping top plate which makes it much easier to frame the side walls.

There is information on how to install a window in the instructions that come with every shed.
