Log Store Plans

by Ovidiu


This step by step diy project is about 4×8 log store plans. I have designed this 4×8 shelter so you can store long (4′) logs and keep them dry. Remember that this is a super simple shed designed for 4′ long logs and not for split firewood. 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.

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. See all my Premium Plans HERE.

Building a 4×8 shelter for logs



The first step of the project is to build the frame for the floor. Therefore, cut the joists from 2×6 lumber, as shown in the diagram. Drill pilot holes through the rim joists and insert 3 1/2″ screws into the perpendicular components. Make sure the corners are square and align the edges flush.



Fit the posts to the floor frame. Plumb the 4×4 legs with attention and then insert 3 1/2″ lag screws through the frame into the posts. Make sure the corners are square and adjust the clearance between the ground and the floor frame.



Build the rafters from 2×4 lumber. Make 15 degree cuts to both ends of the rafters, as shown in the diagram.

Fit the rafters to the top of the posts. Clamp the rafters into place tightly, drill pilot holes and insert 2 1/2″ screws to lock them into place tightly.

Next, fit the 2×6 boards to the floor frame of the shed. Place the 8′ boards equally spaced and then lock them into place with 2 1/2″ screws.

Front and back roof beams

Fit the 2×4 supports to the front and to the back of the shed roof. Align the edges, drill pilot holes and insert 2 1/2″ screws to lock them into place tightly.

Fitting the roof supports

Use 2×4 lumber for the roof supports. Drill pocket holes at both ends and then insert 2 1/2″ screws to lock them into place tightly.

Fitting the roofing

Fitting the roofing

Fit the roofing sheets to the top of the shed and align the edges flush. You can use plastic or metal roof sheets. Make sure you use the appropriate screws to lock them to the supports, so you create waterproof joints.

Last but not least, you need to take care of the finishing touches. Therefore, smooth the surface with sandpaper and make sure all the joints are super rigid. Select the location of the shed and level it properly.

There is no floating widget to print/download the plans. I have found this to be true for my desktop, as well as my laptop. I have printed your projects before using the widget, but it no longer appears when I mouse over the area where it used to come up.

That’s unavailable for the time being.
