12x16 Firewood Shed Overview

This 12 x 16 inexpensive, easy-to-build firewood shed is an excellent addition to any backyard. It offers a perfect solution for people who need a facility to dry more significant amounts of firewood faster.

Designed with firewood seasoning in mind, this shed has three sides covered with reasonably spaced boards, which cultivates an ideal drying process. The front wall is left open, offering easy access when bringing or picking firewood. The overall construction design enhances exposure to light and air, which speeds up drying and keeps the firewood from rotting.

Structurally, this shade is sturdy and spacious enough to hold up to 10 cords of firewood without its integrity being compromised. You can also use it to store your farm tools and rest assured that everything will be in perfect condition.

The shed has an asphalt shingles lean-to roof, allowing water to run off whenever it rains. As with any wooden shed, apply a few coats of paint over the shed’s components to enhance its overall appearance and protect it from bad weather and elements so it lasts longer. This shed keeps your firewood dry while adding an element of interest to your property.

Why Homeowners Should Build a 12x16 Firewood Shed


DIY and Save Up to $500

According to the Associated General Contractors of America (ACG), the average cost can range between $15 to $30 per square foot saved on hiring a professional contractor to build a 12x16 firewood shed vs doing it yourself (DIY).


192 sq. ft. Extra Space Where You Need it

Although the construction and design of a 12x16 firewood shed can be customized, the size of the structure makes it easy and light enough for two adults to safely relocate or the use of a dolly with straps can make this job a breeze.


Increase Property Value

Adding a new 12x16 firewood shed can enhance your landscaping and adds property value to your home. Depending on the finishes or custom trim packages readily available at most DIY firewood shed providers, can increase or slightly hold its value on future property tax assessments.
