About this deal

Due to the large size of a lot of log stores, you’ll benefit from having a power screwdriver and an extra pair of hands to help out. If you’re conscious about burning responsibly-sourced logs, you’ll likely be looking for a wood store that is similarly environmentally conscientious. This Rutland County Garden Furniture Cottesmore Log Store is made from FSC-approved wood which comes from sustainable sources.

Also, make sure the timber comes from a sustainable source. Not only is this better for the environment but usually an indicator that the timber is a reliable quality.The frame of the store should be constructed from sturdy posts, with the sides made from either slats or feather-edge panels. Even pressure-treated wood will benefit from an occasional water-sealant treatment as well. Applying a coat roughly once a year will help the wood stay protected from water damage (splitting, warping, etc.). This is especially important to do after you’ve had the log store for around 5 years. On rainy days, your fire or log burner will require a ready supply of quality, dry (seasoned) logs to work effectively. We offer a wide range of log stores, tool storage, log and tool chest and wheelie bin covers manufactured to the highest standards. All log stores can be added with doors including heavy-duty fixings also with a kindling shelf for extra storage. Timber is sourced from FSC-approved, sustainable sources, so as well as lasting for years you can be sure that it is environmentally sound too. Assembly doesn’t take too long – around an hour with the help of two people, though you might want to wear gloves as splinters can come off the wood whilst putting it together. This rugged, extremely strong & large well built log store is for the larger garden and for those who get through a lot of logs, built in the same way we build our pergolas in tanalised redwood timber these are built to last. Available with or without doors (please enquire if you would like doors) this is the king of log stores! With added shelf for your kindling, this takes care of all your log storage needs. Features

If you frequently burn through a large number of logs, you might struggle to keep enough close to hand for when you need them. Like all of our timber products, this tool store is made using high quality, pressure treated timber from FSC approved, sustainable sources, so as well as lasting for years you can be sure that it is environmentally friendly too. If you have an occasional fire during the evenings in winter, a small store will be sufficient. These normally have a capacity of less than 1 m³. For smaller spaces, it can help to look for a taller wood store that will keep a few more logs without expanding on the unit’s footprint. There is a kindling shelf that can be positioned wherever you want it – given that this is a double unit, you could even have half a side of kindling if you wanted, whilst still leaving a lot of room for logs.Being able to store a high volume of logs is always convenient. You need to replace logs less often and will always have a steady supply of dried logs perfect for burning. Many people divide their storage into separate compartments, one for dried logs and another for wetter logs still to dry, with a higher capacity making this much easier. Placement If not, there is a good chance the storage becomes damaged to the point of disrepair in just a few years. Constant rain will do that to most timber, so always make sure to choose something that is treated!

You’ll want to base the size of your log store on how many logs you have. For up to 300 logs, a small store measuring around 150 x 150 cm will be sufficient . These stores will have an internal capacity of approximately 1 m³ and are ideal for a small garden. A larger log store, with a capacity of 1.5 m³ or more, will be better suited to a large garden and will hold at least 450 logs. Our smallest double bay log store, but also one of our most popular, this versatile wooden log store is a practical solution to log storage for almost any household. In terms of construction, this log store is a bit more interesting than the others featured here – it’s made from the wood of a Nordic Spruce (more commonly seen in its original tree form at Christmas!), which is generally stronger than pine. The majority of log stores can be assembled within 1 – 2 hours. A lot of them come with pre-drilled, or at least started-off, screw holes. Logs with more than a 20% moisture content aren’t great for burning for several reasons: not only are damp logs hard to light, but they can cause more serious problems. Burning damp logs they can create a lot of smoke, as well as tar build up in the chimney, which can have health consequences as well as be dangerous in the home.

3 x 6 Forest Large Pent Log Store

This way the logs will be dried by the warmth of the sun and ventilation from the draft, but they won’t have rain blown directly on them when the weather is bad. These are more suited to people who are frequently burning logs in winter, or using a wood-burning stove as well as a fire. Some people choose to have both a large and small wood store, placing the smaller one closer to the house for easy access, with the larger one used to store and season more logs. Given how much space they take up, it is important to consider what size you need, and there are a lot of size options available so be sure to think about this. There are a few things that influence how large a storage space you need for logs, mainly how large a log burner you have and how often you use it. If you’re placing your log store in a windy area, where you think a lot of rain may be blown in if you have a unit with slats, feather-edge panels will be a better, more-protective, bet.
