The first question you will have to answer is the why are you looking for a shed in your yard.  Is it to store all your gardening tool and machinery?  Are you going to make it a place where you can escape to for peace and mind?    There are many possible reasons why you would like to have a shed and there are a dozen different sites on the internet to look for plans for a storage shed.

The second question that you should answer is where are you going to place your new shed.  Where you are planning to build your shed is it going to bother your neighbors or a family member.  Also check your local ordinance on their regulations for a shed just to keep things from any problems.

And finally the third thing you have to answer is how big do you plan to build this shed.  This will depend upon what the usage is going to for.  It will be easier for you to decide the size will be when you have what the purpose it will be used for.

Are You Ready For Winter - Build a Shed to Keep Your Firewood Dry

When you got that firewood you either broke your back splitting and stacking or you purchased it. But what if that wood gets wet? If that firewood picks up moisture than it won't burn for you and it all goes down the drain with your cash and blood sweat and tears. But, by building a firewood shed for yourself will help you to keep that firewood dry and you warm and smiling.
To start it is important to find a location that will be suitable for your shed. Where water does not pool up in and is fairly close to your home. In heavy rain or in snow you really don't want to be too far away from home when you bring the firewood back home. Also, when you start building your shed it would be a good idea to raise the flooring off the ground so moisture can't reach your firewood. If the wood gets wet it won't burn and will start to rot very quickly.
Most firewood sheds are built with three sides to it. The fourth side is usually left open for the fact the wood needs air to circulate through it to dry it properly. When building the shed try to face it away from the flow of wind. This will help to keep rain and snow from entering it.
A good idea to prevent moisture from entering your shed is to put some plastic on the floor and have good air flow underneath the wood pile. These sheds don't have to be real big like a garage or a regular size shed but something that will handle your pile of wood.
Getting good shed plans to help you with this or any building project is a good idea to do and this will help and save you time and energy and money. So get your hands on firewood shed plans first
