Wood Shed or Woodshed?
Our son built this woodshed at the Brown House last week. The inside dimensions are 6' x 16' with a variable height, enough space to tightly stack four cords under cover. I cut the seven locust posts on our property some years ago, and stored them under old roof metal. The roof of the woodshed matches the metal siding of the Lower Level of the house. As you might see, the triangle sections under the overhangs on each end are made from old barn wood that our son brought from his place. We plan to stain the barn wood and posts something clear and oil-based. The pressure treated wood will receive a unique, fanciful color: brown. A girl who helps with cleaning asked what the shed was for. I said, "It's a woodshed." She said, "I know, but what's it for?" I guess her family doesn't heat with wood.
