    Hi,
    This is the log store I build about two months ago, we had a lot of logs in the carport that needed a better place, I had some wood laying around waiting another project, so I borrowed it for this one
    This is the pile of wood that needs to be sorted

    Before we can put it in its place a solid foundation is needed

    Here its in its place, with the sides on, and loaded, what remains to be done is to put some light in it

    Looks great. I intend to build one just like that when I get a minute.

    Did you use a plan or just do it rough? It's difficult to tell from the photos, but did you leave air gaps at the back/side/base?

    It has airgaps in the bottom (1" between the slats) , and the featheredge is quite airy

    No plans, had the desired measurements, and wanted it to look chuncky to match in with the carport

    Thinking of making a log store for around a budget of £150.00

    Any ideas guys? Perhaps there's some guides I can download?

    Two old pallets, free. A few feet of 4x2 and a sheet of ply for the roof, with a roll of tarred felt isn't going to cost £150.

    Does it not matter if some rain still gets on the wood?
