Many people get so excited about building the shed that they forget about laying the foundation. You need to set your shed up the right way with a proper base, which means getting wood and laying it down on the ground to form a deck or pier. The best way to do this is to dig a few inches below ground level and set the planks of wood firmly in the ground, with square blocks for the corners for stability on both sides.
2. Another consideration is the style or design of the shed. You may consider your personal preference or what you think looks best in your back yard as well as what blends in well with other buildings in the neighborhood. It should not be an eyesore. You may also consider looking at other garden sheds in different parts of your town or city, as well as sheds on display at building suppliers like Home Depot or Rona (Canada) to get an idea of what would looks best.
Having a firewood shed plan that encourages air flow is probably the most critical element of the design. Air must move around the wood to both dry it out from its natural moisture content and keep it dry after it is seasoned. If the wood is allowed to remain wet by sitting in a damp place that is very slow to dry out it will rot and grow fungus. The firewood shed encourages air flow around the wood first by having large gaps in the floor of the shed that allow air to easily move through the floor. Having a foundation that lets air into the underside of the floor so it can move up through the holes is another important design factor to keep the air moving. A good firewood shed design will have at least one of the shed walls open to further encourage air flow and to allow easy access to the firewood.
For DIY enthusiasts, several do-it-yourself kits for building garden sheds are available in many hardware stores. The only thing to remember is to choose a stable spot to lay the foundation and that the materials should be chosen carefully. Sometimes, city or state regulations will require you to obtain a building permit for the garden shed, so it is still best to consult with the local authorities before attempting to put one up. Other than that, the only requirement to build a sturdy and stylish garden shed is some patience and a bit of ingenuity.Bill has a knack for getting things messed up.
