Store firewood correctly: in a dry place outside

For proper firewood storage outside, you need to choose a sunny and dry place around the house. It must also be well ventilated and protected from rain and snow. For example, you can stack the purchased firewood on the south wall of the house by leaving a few inches free between the house wall and the wood. This distance is necessary for optimal air circulation. It would also be a great idea to stack this under a canopy. Other possibilities that are also possible are the basement and the garden shed. In principle, these are good wood stores if there is sufficient ventilation there. There are special shelves for properly storing firewood in specialist shops. These are made of either wood or metal and can be rearranged as required. However, you always have to keep in mind that you only need the firewood indoors. It is therefore advisable not to keep it far from the fireplace.

Store the firewood correctly – right on the threshold between inside and outside!

Can I store the firewood in the interior and how?

As mentioned above, most homeowners stack the firewood in a dry, well-sheltered place outside and only bring in as much logs as they need for a few hours or a whole day. However, there are other storage options that are practical and fit perfectly into the room design. These are, for example, built-in wooden shelves that are next to or on both sides of the stove. These are specially designed to properly store the firewood, at home. They do not conflict with the overall design of the house, nor do they detract from its stylistic aesthetics. But on the contrary! You are in tune with it! These firewood storage options usually look like elegant pieces of furniture, such as a shelf or stand.
