6×8 Wood Storage – 2 Cord Firewood Shed Plans

Ovidiu 0 GapDice RANDOM PLAN

This step by step diy project is about 2 cord firewood shed plans. This is a 6×8 wood storage shed that you can build with common materials. This storage shed features a lean to roof and it is enclosed on all 3 sides, except for the front, so you can have an easy access in and out. You can build this shed under 750 usd. See the rest of my firewood shed free plans HERE. Take a look over the rest of my woodworking plans, if you want to get more building inspiration. Premium Plans for this project available in the Shop.

When buying the lumber, you should select the planks with great care, making sure they are straight and without any visible flaws (cracks, knots, twists, decay). Investing in cedar or other weather resistant lumber is a good idea, as it will pay off on the long run. Use a spirit level to plumb and align the components, before inserting the galvanized screws, otherwise the project won’t have a symmetrical look. If you have all the materials and tools required for the project, you could get the job done in about a day.

How to build a 6×8 wood shed

Assembling-the-shed-floor

Assembling-the-shed-floor

First, you need to build the floor frame. Drill pilot holes through the 8 ft joists and insert 3 1/2″ screws into the perpendicular components. Align the edges flush and check if the corners are square. Place the joists every 16″ on center.

Fitting-the-skids—wood-shed

Use 4×4 lumber for the skids. It would be a great idea to use pressure treated lumber. Fit the skids under the floor frame, drill pilot holes and insert 3 1/2″ screws to lock them together tightly. Alternatively, you can use rafter ties and 1 1/2″ structural screws to lock them together tightly. Use 2 rafters for each skid.

Fitting-the-deck-boards---wood-shed

Fitting-the-deck-boards—wood-shed

Fit the 2×4 boards to the floor frame. Set 1 5/8″ spacers between the boards to create even gaps. Drill pilot holes through the boards and insert 2 1/2″ screws to secure them into place tightly.

Fitting-the-posts-to-the-shed-floor

Fitting-the-posts-to-the-shed-floor

Use 2×4 lumber for the posts. Cut the posts at the right dimensions and attach them to the corners of the floor frame, as shown in the diagram. Use a spirit level to plumb the posts. Drill pilot holes and insert 3″ lag screws to lock them to the floor frame.

Fit the 2×4 posts to the back of the floor frame. Plumb the posts with a spirit level, drill pilot holes and insert 3″ lag screws.

Fitting-the-support-beams

Fitting-the-support-beams

Use 2×6 lumber for the support beams. Fit the beams to the front and to the back of the shed, leaving 10 1/2″ overhangs on both sides. Drill pilot holes and insert 3″ lag screws into the posts. Use a spirit level to make sure the beams are perfectly horizontal.

This is a medium sized firewood storage shed, therefore it might be the optimal choice between construction costs and utility. If you like the basic design and the beautiful appearance, this shed will become a statement in your backyard. I have many design ideas on this blog, so make sure you take a look over all the alternatives before taking a decision. Premium Plans are available in the SHOP.
