Sometimes we wood burners put off purchasing that cord of wood because we can’t imagine where on earth we’re going to save it. However, when I set it off, I wind up buying that overpriced small package of green wood in the grocery store and also a Duralog on the first chilly night, and that’s no good for my my fire-building self-esteem.
Locating a place to store logs inside and out could be tricky, and I’m here to help. I have already covered how to create the logs operate with modern and modern homes, and now we’re going to have a look at how to keep them in a conventional- or transitional-style house. We’ll look at everything from 1 package to a cord, indoors and outside.

A wood bucket filled with logs in the front door adds a rustic, wintry signature into a home’s curb appeal, saying, “Come in; there is a hot fire blazing inside”
Copper Bucket – $229
A copper bucket filled with logs inside will keep the fire moving through a comfy dinner and a movie. Cart the wood in early in the day so it’s time to dry to your night fire.

White Log Basket – GBP 95
A log basket holds enough logs for a few fires. It’s even semiportable, but this often works better in theory than in reality.
A pair of log holders stores a large number of logs and lends symmetry and texture to the room. If you’re designing a new home, consider log storage if planning your chimney.
If you would rather your logs a bit more hidden, create a niche between the hearth and the floor. The floor beneath should be stone; I enjoy it if it is the same stone used on the hearth.
This more transitional room has a hearth with a clean, sharp edge, lending a more modern look than the rough stone in the preceding picture.

If you’re planning an outdoor fireplace, look at adding comprehensive log storage as part of the design. It’s great to have wood handy rather than tramping through the yard to the woodpile on a snowy night.
Actual Size Jobs
If you want a more scoutlike jamboree out back, you can use your logs to make a makeshift council ring close to your fire pit.

Following is a solution for that entire cord. This very simple shed offers protection overhead, and its own metal siding helps protect the wood fence and home siding out of any damage.

A very simple pile by the front entrance, particularly underneath a covered terrace, is quite convenient. Just be careful to not damage the decking or the siding.
Log Racks – Standard – Frontgate – $199
I recommend a large-capacity stand like this one. It comes in many sizes and even has another place for kindling on the floor.
