Build Rustic LOG Firewood SHED p3

This is the final installment of the firewood shed project I built out of logs. Part one & two I showed you how I installed the log piers, how I scribed the tapered headers to the vertical legs & I showed how I went about using the chain saw to scribe or carve the joists onto the headers & achieve a mostly level surface area up on top.
In this video I will show you how I went about installing 2X diminutional lumber to the log joists & fine tune the height for a perfectly level surface the new metal roofing can attach to. I then install 18″ tall cedar fence boards to the back side for cosmetic reasons which in return the rain gutter attaches to. Sometime before all that I install mulberry gusset braces to stabilize the structure & give it an even more dramatic rustic weathered look.
In the end I load the shed with seasoned stove cut firewood placed on strategically placed pallets that are elevated on stones to prevent rot, the pallets allow plenty of air flow through out the wood & keeps it from making contact with the moist earth beneath.
The left side of the shed is strictly for storage, that side has an 8 foot opening. That side will house the cement mixer, log splitter & other various pieces of equipment I use around the property.
Really hope you like the build, share this series if you can on social media, subscribe if you like what you see & thumbs up 😉
See you on the next build…….
