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

So on with the build

The roof is on

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?
