I am watching the Fire Science DVD that was kickstarter "candy" and I am at the part where Erica/Ernie explain about how to store firewood and the importance of a woodshed. We don't currently have a woodshed and have been using a tarp. I would like to find woodshed plans that are functional but when I search online, it's hard to know what is a good design and what is not. Could I get a recommended website that shows a good design? Even better if it has specific plans. Also I would like to know more about using clear corrigated (roofing?) material like an attendee mentioned in the video. Is that a good option? cheaper? Just for the roof or sides also? Thanks so much for any help. Newbie here as you can probably tell by the admission of using a tarp
I think a good woodshed will allow wind to blow directly on the wood. So you pretty much only need a roof, maybe a little overhang. Rain blowing in from the sides is okay. Yes having a clear roof would allow more energy/heat in to dry the wood, and making the area bright will also discourage fungi/mold and critters to an extend.
Iterations are fine, we don't have to be perfect
I'm gonna teach you a lesson! Start by looking at this tiny ad:
