Started with one pole shed 15 years ago, now have three at 4-5 bush cord each. Found that wood needs to be dry when it goes in unless you fill a row, then move to the next shed until the sun dries it out.
A few years ago a buddy wanted to show off his new wood processor so he brought it over and we went from log to split and piled in a 15' shed in two hours. The wood was still steaming when burnt 8 months later, not to mention covered in black mould...

I have a shed for my wood stove that I love but it's away from the boiler. So I do plan on  building one some day, tarps are getting old. Not to mention how dry the wood in the shed gets.

I added a shed to the back and an outbuilding near the boiler.  I still have a wood yard that it the first stop for the split wood. Let it season there, on pallets and covering.   every now and then refill the shed. 

Cold front coming in, so we loaded the shed to the gills yesterday. Going to take some time off for more cutting now that gun season is done.

Tote cages and racks here for the foreseeable future. Go and build something fancy like a wood shed and the county will not only add it to my property taxes and the assessment will be like its gold plated. I might however buy a large carport and set it on the 2x2x6’ cement blocks for added height.

I did a large carport.  I love it!  My brother (who also has an OWB) lives next door, still stores wood under a tarp, and I cringe when he goes out of town in the winter!

I to like my tote cages. I have a lot of my wood stored in them now with a simple tarp tied on top. Wood dries fast and I double stack the cages taking up a lot less room.

I’ve thought about trying two high, but then it puts the top cage right in the blind spot for the skid steer.

I have 58 of those food grade metal crates I love them they almost hold one face cord perfect if stacked right. Very easy to move around and can double stack if necessary

When you double stack all you need covered is the top of the upper cages. Very good ventilation for drying. We had our in ground pool removed and I had a caver that I tried and tried to sell. No one seemed to want it so I cut it in 8x4 peices and bought a grommet kit and made my own tarps for my tote cages. Work real well. I double stacked mine with a tractor and loader. Gonna leave about 16 inches between rows so air can circulate.

If I keep a wood shed 3 sided and a dirt floor all is well. Now the 4th side or a poured slab and they tax that.  Metal totes here are $$, but I keep my eye open for them.
