Frequently Asked Questions

What is the secret to firewood storage?

The secret to storing dry seasoned firewood is good air circulation. The easiest way to keep your firewood dry is with a firewood shed with slatted side panels and a strongly constructed floor that enables you to store firewood off the ground.

What size should my woodshed be?

This will depend on the size of your house, how well insulated it is, etc. On average, a small household will need to store 1-2 cubic metres of firewood per season, and a large household would need 2-4 cubic metres.

Can you use a garden shed for storing firewood?

Storing wood in a garden shed, although not ideal, is certainly better than storing firewood in your backyard, on the ground and in a heap. But a purposely built wood shed or firewood rack is a much more efficient and practical option to keep your firewood dry.

Should I buy or build a shed for firewood storage?

If you are handy with the tools, have access to good firewood shed plans, and have the time and stamina to build a woodshed from scratch, by all means, you should give it a go. If you’re not too handy, or lack the time and tools, buying might be a better option for you.

Is purchased cut firewood better than cutting your own firewood?

No, as long you make sure your own firewood is well seasoned before storing it. The key here is to start in time, don’t leave it until winter to get started.

What are the most essential things I need to build my own firewood shed

At a minimum, your firewood shed should have a roof, four posts to support the roof, slatted side panels to keep the rain out and the air circulation going, and some sort of a sturdy base to keep your wood off the ground.

Do you have any tips on seasoning my own firewood?

  1. Start early enough, i.e. spring or early summer. Don’t leave it until winter starts to bite.

  2. Leave your firewood pile exposed to sun and wind as long as possible. You can temporarily cover it with a tarp, but don’t leave the tarp on for too long as it may trap moisture.

  3. When the wood is dry enough, or you’re running out of drying weather, store your wood out of the rain, preferably in a wood shed.

  4. Don’t forget to cut enough kindling size wood to keep you going all winter.
