We recently completed a really nice fire pit / campsite makeover and one of the projects on the list was a firewood shed to keep the firewood dry. I wanted to keep it simple yet effective so this is what I came up with. If you want to save money you could leave the deck boards off and set the wood directly on the platform structure but I like the idea of having a solid deck. Read on to get the plans and check out the video below for the entire fire pit makeover!
