Firewood stacker

With a wood burning fireplace inside, and an outdoor firepit in the backyard, we go through a fair amount of firewood at our house. Without the luxury of a garage for indoor firewood storage, I needed to come up with an alternative solution for covered wood storage.

With very minimal supplies, I built a firewood stacker that has three functions.

  1. It creates a visual barrier to the utility area behind, hiding from view the compost, wheelbarrow and yard trimmings bin.
  2. It helps define the firepit seating area by cozying up the openness of the backyard and creating the firepit zone.
  3. It allows us to neatly stack the firewood under cover, at arms reach to where the wood will be burned.
