How to Build a Wood Storage Shed

Posted 20 October 2021 3:00 PM by Jase DeBoer

Cooler months are upon us. Now is the perfect time to plan your fall building projects. A wood storage shed is an easy project to complete and is especially handy if you use a wood stove or fireplace to heat your home. Depending on your storage needs, our project plan is completely customizable and easy to build within a weekend.

How Much Storage Do I Need?
Our standard, single-stall storage shed holds roughly a quarter cord of wood, or an amount of wood that fills a space equal to 4 feet long, 4 feet high, and 4 feet deep. For those hoping to store wood for weekend bonfires or occasional fires in their fireplace, this should be sufficient. Those needing multi-season storage for wood stoves or other forms of wood-burning heat should consider expanding their shed to at least 8’ wide

Completely Customizable
Not only is the size and shape easy to modify, but you can also choose from standard pressure-treated or color-treated lumber, depending on your preferences. If you would rather not purchase rail brackets for the sides, you can face mount each board to the 4x4 post instead; simply cut your 2”x 4” boards to length.
