I'm a (very) amature builder and after purchasing a small farm house and installing a woodstove I have realized I need outdoor space to store fire wood and I am looking for any advice on how to build a lean-to against the house to store this fire wood or if there may be other more efficient options.

I'm not much help with the lean-to, but...

Not sure where you live, but here in "fire country" we are discouraged from storing firewood adjacent to the house. It also might encourage pests (insects, termites, ?) to enter your home.

I agree - more for the termites than the fire risk.

That said, I have a small (8' * 44" footprint) lean-to made from 3 sheets of plywood. I don't know if that's the kind of thing you had in mind?

If so, if you want to post your address, I'd be glad to send you plans - or I can try to just describe it in words for you.

I built a small (8' * 44" footprint) lean-to out of 3 sheets of plywood. If you want to post your address, I'll send plans.

I apologize if this is a repeat post - I'm having trouble posting.
