Exclamation Steel buliding

Anyone got one of them steel buliding that go up in a weekend? 10X16 is the size we are looking at getting for storing firewood. If anyone has gotten one close to that size please let me know and did it really go up pretty fast?

is there a reason you dont want to just use tarps to cover the firewood? it allows it to dry out/season better than being inside an enclosure and it stays plenty dry for burning.

i know this because we store 11-12 cords of split firewood for heating the house at a time, and we burn 80-90% of the stores every year so just wondering if there is any special reason you need the steel building over tarps

I'm tired of sticking my hands in snow. I split at least 5 cords a summer and than threw out the winter pick it up off and on. With all the money we spend on traps its cheaper to buy a shed and put it on there and keep it drying all year long.

For the same money you would spend on one of those prebuilt systems, you could build 5 wooden sheds on the same dimensions.

Not to mention, you have to hope that they gave you the right parts and the holes have been drilled in the right place or you'll have a mess.
