These firewood shed plans will help you build a 2' x 8' firewood storage shed and will require very little building skills.
It is constructed entirely of pressure treated lumber. You can however build it with whatever you choose.
You can certainly build it with regular dimensional pine and then treat it with wood preservative if you prefer.
Actually, just had a cord delivered today and I was only about 30 logs short (I just stacked those next to the fireplace!) so it's bigger than you think. :)
I've been getting lots of compliments on the piece and am very happy with the way it has been keeping the wood dry while still allowing easy-access.
As for the plans, the hardest part for me was figuring out HOW to cut each board (I'm mathematically challenged) so that would be a helpful addition to the plans (e.g. 4 boards this size needed for this step. Cut two of them into THIS size pieces and two into ANOTHER size pieces). :)

Martin from Canada had this to say about the plans: (That's Martin in the first picture at top of page!)
Got your plans the other day for this project. I used my old 2x6 deck boards for most of it. Sanded them down then restained them.
Also I used all screws, instead of nails. Could not get cedar planking for the roof where I live. I put 1/2 inch plywood on the roof and then maybe will shingle it or cedar shingles. As this is a gift for my sister and brother-in-law, I will leave that up to them!
Was fun to build and am presently looking at some of your sheds. I am not a great carpenter but I want to do more.
Thanks, and good job on the plans!

You could just build the floor out of pressure treated lumber, and the rest of the structure from regular pine. I do however recommend also building the roof from either cedar lap siding or pressure treated 1 x 8's or similar dimension.
