This slightly unsightly woodpile has greeted us and our guests at the front of the house for over a year now. Even though we have oodles of firewood for our thermal mass fireplace and some beautiful woodsheds,
Add to that a garbage can, some recycling bins, and an extension cord, and we don’t have a very attractive entry area to greet us and our guests.
D decided to build a wood storage bin. We had tons of 1.5″ strips of cedar that were cut off the edges of the post cladding, and they were already mostly stained, so that is our finish.
In the miscellaneous lumber pile, he located enough plywood, 2×4, 1×4, and 2×6 to build this big woodbox/garbage bin. We’ll cover the lid with the same copper penny steel roofing as on the house.
Isn’t it lovely?
