When many people think of sheds, the first thing that comes to mind is “storage”. And it’s not hard to see why! Garages can quickly become dumping grounds for lawn equipment, bikes, holiday decorations, trash bins, etc. Adding a storage shed to your yard allows you to reclaim your garage while getting organized. It’s a win-win! And living in Indiana, sheds are the perfect place to store cold weather necessities like snow blowers, shovels, and winter boots .
There are those of us who can’t live with the idea of a messy home. Well, outdoor storage sheds bring you one step closer to a clean and organized humble abode.

This firewood shed will store exactly 3 cords of wood. I have done the calculus myself and I can attest that this is one roomy wood shed. As you can see in the diagram, this lean to shed has a wooden floor to protect the logs from moisture and a large opening on the front. The roof is made from 3/4″ plywood sheets and asphalt shingles, but you can easily convert it to metal sheets. MORE >>

You may have been told that important documents like social security cards, passports, birth and marriage certificates, and other difficult-to-replace papers that can be damaged by moisture should be stored in a waterproof and fireproof safe. Keeping that safe in your home office or bedroom is much safer than storing it in your backyard shed. Sure, it may be "out of the way," but it's more vulnerable.

The next project is also about a firewood rack, but this is slightly larger. While it doesn’t have a roof, the rack is large enough to store a significant quantity of firewood. If you are looking for a quick and cheap project (under 10$), this project is the right one for your needs. You can make several units if you have a larger quantity to store. MORE >>
Install the tongue and groove sheets as in the image, otherwise the floor won’t provide enough support to store heavy items.
