A Wood Shed Built from Firewood?

Why not?

If you've got lots of firewood, why not make it protect itself?  In many areas, innovative people use the firewood itself to make a protective shed.  Sound impossible?

Firewood Stacking on Steroids...

The beauty of this technique is that you don't need to build anything; just start stacking.  You'll be astonished at some of the incredible ways that people use this method.

The important thing to remember is that the area you're stacking on must be level, and you must make sure that the wood as you're layering it must be secure.  The last thing you want is for the whole thing to collapse - wood is heavy!

It's important to start off with some kind of foundation, especially if you plan to go high.  Nothing would be more disappointing than to get halfway up a huge pile only to have it fall down.

So which is your favorite?  It's so inspiring to see how imaginative some people are.  Start with a bunch of firewood, and see where it takes you.
