This log store is built to serve a house - Moonshine – which has no car access and whose sole source of heating is wood

It is sized to store one year’s fuel, and is sited to capture prevailing south westerly wind, and designed to encourage air flow through the drying timber, yet keep rain out. It is a home grown larch frame constructed on site and made entirely with dry joints with no foundations.
