Log Stores - How much?

Drying logs is mainly about good airflow. The problem with most garages and sheds is they have next to no airflow. If you buy a tonne of logs you are looking to get rid of around 300 litres of water before they are ready to burn! That water needs to go somewhere hence why you need lots of airflow to carry the water away.

 

These are the sheds we use to dry logs

Smart sheds!

 

Did you just sink the poles in the ground, or is there some sort of foundation there? Thanks.

Just 8' stakes banged into the ground. Our ground is very firm so you can get away with the front ones only being in around a 1' and giving me headroom at the front. The first one of our sheds I made like that some of the stakes have rotted badly due the poor modern treatment so I would try to get chestnut or creosoted posts next time.
