My secret firewood-shelter project

I recorded this in September 2022, when the missus and kids went to Ireland – bringing back a dose of ‘the spicy cough’ (COVID-19).

I told her before she left that I had no intention of doing a secret project while she was away – as I’ve been known to do 😉 But – I lied.

I was planning this one in my head for month – a proper shelter for firewood (to replace or augment the little metal shed we bought at Bunnings – which doesn’t hold a whole winter’s supply). Plus, this shelter is located right where the trailer brings the wood onto the property.

The wall and gate are also a much prettier replacement for the pile of bricks and the blue tarp that previously delineated the central wood chopping/storage area.
