Stock Tank Firewood ShedSet two old round stock tanks on edge, tie them together top-to-top with wire , cut a rectangular door in one side, and you have an inexpensive "firewood shed", says Kent Krause, Adams, Neb.
The stock tanks are 6 ft. in diameter and 2 1/2 ft. high. Krause converts them to "firewood sheds" when they get old and leaky. Each "firewood shed" holds over a pickup load of wood. To keep the bottoms of the "firewood shed" dry, Krause sets each unit on old railroad ties or concrete blocks.
"I can fill each tank with two rows of 18-in. long logs," notes Krause. "We use wood burning tank heaters to heat our stock tanks, so I keep a shed beside each heater. Two sheds hold enough wood to last half the winter."
