A Log Store is the Best Place to Store Firewood

If you use a wood stove, log burner or open fireplace, a log store is essential. Whether you purchase seasoned, kiln-dried wood or dry out your own, you need to keep your logs dry and aerated so that they're in prime condition to burn.

Dry logs produce more heat and less smoke, which makes them more economical, more pleasant to burn and less likely to block up your flue.

Why use a Log Store?

Protection from Rain

In Britain, we don't have many long spells of dry weather. If your logs aren’t under cover then they’re going to get wet.

There’s no need to move them indoors or use up all the space in your shed. Simply buy a woodstore instead.

Always choose a woodstore with a sloping roof. This aids efficient rainwater run-off, protecting your firewood and minimising water damage to the store.

Protection from Ground Moisture

Flooring is another key feature. Without it, ground moisture will damage the bottom layer of your firewood, particularly if it's piled up on the grass.

A good woodstore prevents rot and mould by keeping ALL of your logs dry. Look for log storage with a slatted floor and raised on bearers.

Promotion of Good Aeration

To remain in prime condition, logs also need space for air to circulate.

Woodstores promote good air flow, even when they’re full of logs.

Look for a wood store with open-slatted sides, and either an open-slatted or fully-open back, designed to rest against a wall.

Log Sheds with Added Storage

If you chop-up your own timber, you’re going to need an axe, and what better place to keep it than next to your logs?

Even if you buy ready-made firewood, a bit of extra garden storage for your kindling, stove gloves or regularly used garden tools never goes amiss.
