White oak mushroom Logs

I have 13 white oak mushroom logs that I was hoping to house somewhere this spring and summer. I recently moved from Oregon and don't have a proper place to store the logs. Our current rental doesn't have any adequate place to store the logs. If anyone has any suggestions or is willing to  trade some space to store the mushroom logs for work or possibly mushroom, or even one of the logs I would be open to all suggestions. I just want to find a proper place for them so they aren't compromised. The rounds are roughly 4' long and 5 inch in diameter. Cheers

You said you left Oregon but you didn't say where you are now.  ALso, it's unclear whether you have already drilled the logs with mushroom spawn of some sort or not.  When were the logs cut?

My apologies, I'm new at this. I now live in Missoula. Half the logs were cut in late November the other half that have been inoculated were cut in March of last year, those 6  logs are inoculated with spawn. The other 7, cut about 3 months ago, are cut and sealed with beeswax waiting to be inoculated.
 
I'm gonna teach you a lesson! Start by looking at this tiny ad:
