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.
