I like the idea, but I think it would need some cross bracing. It appears to have none, and the first time it sticks a bit, I think your wood would fall over shed and all.

Of course, when fir dries, it usually gets closer to 15%. And, as a softwood, it is significantly less dense. But even still, we suspect that this will be too heavy.
Tim and I have already talked about some ideas to mitigate the weight. But we agree that the first thing to do is to use it as designed and see what happens.
As for cross bracing - there is a lot of cross bracing that isn't showing up in the pictures provided.
There is a perfect use for this shed without such risk: if you only move it when it's empty.
Paul, I wasn't trying to Negative Nelly this.

Basically, you have a 2-4 inch strap of steel down the middle as the ice runner, the the log is chamfered so it won't drag on ice or dirt but help float in mud and snow.
