Not the best photos but this ours. First picture is the heated shed/kiln then when they're dry we put them in another shed wherever we can fit them.

Store all our cages, 80 of them, in a windy ally between some sheds, they're down at 20-25%and only processed in June. Felled in February. These go in our kiln on farm 14 at a time.

Once that's full we put loose logs in the 'lambing shed' ready to tip into the drying bin. Get about 70cube in there, need an elevator though and I'd get loads more in. Again cut about June/July and they've come down to 25% already even just in a pile like that.

When the bin comes back we put them through the cleaner and bag up for storage. d7afa1026b3788394c0a6a8fbe9cac9c.jpg1748e68cfb924a218059ddc7b116e6dc.jpg0baaf70772d54af2ffabbdc0194569bc.jpgc8fe7ac927735c1a330a0e373ae07fde.jpg02a5bdfbfdeb160918f368507f49d173.jpg

Always remember that no matter how big the shed/barn you'll always need a bigger one

I can't help thinking that in the space you have there is a lot of height that is unused.  Maybe other options than just a bigger barn.

You either need a telehandler or a conveyor elevator to make the most of shed height. Logs do pile up well if you've got the forward reach!

The higher you pile it the less well it will dry.

At the bottom yes, the top half of the triangle will do better than if it's a rounder mound though I would think.
I'm very pleased by how much that shed of ours has dried. They went in really quite wet and have come down considerably in next to no time at all.

Could you lay pallets down first to get air underneath?
I've got 2 rows of pallets along the back in that open fronted shed. Barely a hint of mould.
