  1. Hello,

    I built this firewood shed with old house beam.

    Looks pretty good, just keep in mind how tall it is and how strong your winds might become. Tie-down straps could help with that. Lots of rain might require more of an overhang, too. (Both are issues I have in my area :) )

    Thanks for sharing!

    I could not get past step 5. The next button wasn't working. It looks like a nice sturdy building. Could be used for lots of things besides wood. Nice construction

    Likewise, Moto...but further clicking showed that the siding had not been done yet ;)

    Thanks @techsar I was thinking it was such an nice shed it could actually be made so you could stick visiting relatives in there.
