Woodshed part 1

Published by at 3:03 pm under Expeditions and Experiences

Lately I’ve been working on a shed for firewood. I’m getting pretty tired of using raw birch for firewood (although that does work and I can talk about that in another post). I cut two spruces at about 2.5m hight and used some of the timber from the top for the rear posts, which I dug down. The two trees gives enormous stability for the rest of the structure. The core structure is made out of whole timber from my property and I only bought nails for joining them. I could have of course have used wooden plugs but I didn’t have an auger to drill the holes with.

The roofing and sides will be finished when I have gotten hold of the appropriate materials.

    What are you going to use for roof and siding?
    How long do you expect the posts to last?

    Hey Torjus. I just wanted to send a word of encouragement for whatever it’s worth. I see you haven’t posted for a while. Just wanted to let you know I still love this blog and continue to check for updates!
    Did you find a good way to tan beaver yet?

    Later,
    Julien
