4x8 Firewood Shed Overview

With a firewood shed right in your backyard, you can shelter your firewood, neatly organize them, and keep them dry for increased heating efficiency when you need them the most. If you use firewood extensively, this 4 x 8 firewood shed offers you enough space to store logs, branches, and pieces of kindling while adding an element of interest to your yard.

The shed blends sturdy construction and design to provide room for up to 1.6 cords of firewood. It is set on a reinforced platform, so you don’t have to worry about compromised structural integrity.

As for seasoning, the shed features a large opening to the front, and its walls are made of reasonably space boards that help aid and speed up the drying process. Further, its design provides enhanced exposure to light and air, which cultivates ideal drying conditions and prevents rotting.

A lean-to roof crowns this shed, safeguarding it and its contents from rain. To add curb appeal, you can paint or stain the shed to your liking.

This shed would also be perfect for keeping lawnmowers and garden tools.

Why Homeowners Should Build a 4x8 Firewood Shed


DIY and Save Up to $100

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 4x8 firewood shed vs doing it yourself (DIY).


32 sq. ft. Extra Space Where You Need it

Although the construction and design of a 4x8 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 4x8 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.

A nice set of plans to give us an idea… A nice set of plans to give us an idea of what it costs to build on site vs buying a prefab structure, and the quality differences between them. This set of plans is "bomb proof" according to my local lumberyard guy. 2x6 joists on 12" centers, compared to 2x4s on 24" centers for the prefab models. A real foundation, not just some 4x4 skids. It looks like a major amount of work, but the result could be a really nice garden shed sturdy enough to house our commercial-grade chipper as well as the big mower.

The price for plans is way too high The price for plans is way too high, but the plans are fairly decent. You DO have to know a little something about construction and adjustments of measurements, but for the most part, not too bad.

The plans are missing a critical step The plans were missing a critical step, and my original message to Shedplans wasn't received. I received a message from them after posting my problem here, and they subsequently sent me the revised instructions. Very grateful for their follow-up. Now if lumber prices would just return to normal....
