I like the idea of IBC cages but they seem as rare as hen's teeth down here in South Devon. I suppose it wouldn't cost a lot to knock up some DIY potato boxes from pallets and rough timber.

Here's a method of stacking wood that allegedly speeds up the front process ...

The shape of the stack lends itself to the chimney effect thereby drying the wood quicker than normal. I think a polytunnel is a good idea though.

If I can find the photo tonight I'll post it,

 

I came to use the 'beehive' stack by mistake for my domestic wood stacked on my drive. If you leave a 2' x 3' or 4' high gap in the outside wall.. and dont fill the inside, the boys turn this into a playhouse! I supported the roof with palet wood / logs that need chopping

 

Then of course on the inside a couple of logs chopped to be chairs and a table. This year I started getting clever and made a 2 room log house / stack. The Boys now want an upstairs so I need to think for next year.

 

 

Anyway - done this, it drys the wood pretty well. The wind and rain usually come from 1 direction so the opposite wall is kept dry, the sloping roof sheds some of the water, the summer heat creates its own draft and it being a 'toy' it is acceptable for the garden (OK it was also one of my less mad ideas which might have made it more acceptable too)

 

 

Can't take a new photo today - 1/4 of it is in the garage now, and the rest is keeping my toes warm as I type.
