Log Store Reviews and Price Comparisons
We all know that burning logs can dramatically lower our heating bills, whether you have an open fire or a wood burning stove. If you can buy your logs in bulk, or forage for logs it can reduce your bills even further. However, you will need a weatherproof store for your logs, where they can dry naturally and will not be exposed to the elements. There are many log stores on the market, but which is best for your budget and the space you have in your garden?
We review the log stores from all the major online retailers and we include links to those retailers in our reviews. We split our stores into small (up to 1 cubic metre), mid size ( 1-1.5 cubic metres), and large stores i.e. over 2 cubic metres.
So which are our biggest sellers?
Our Best Selling Wood Stores
This is our biggest seller and if you don’t mind getting the screw driver out, and you are looking for a big store, then it is easy to see that the Garden Central Xtra Large Log Store at a guide price of only £118.89 with free delivery from Amazon, offers fantastic value. Customer feedback confirms that it is easy to assemble and the slatted construction means that logs are seasoned quickly, as the air is allowed to circulate and the moisture can escape. See our review.
The Rutland County Garden Furniture range of log stores are very popular. This is the best seller in the range, it is the XL Double 4′ Wooden Log Store from Rutland County Garden Furniture and is sold by Amazon for a guide price of £210. It is hand made, with very solidly constructed panels which come ready to screw together. It is around seven and a half feet wide, two and a half feet in depth and four feet high, and will hold well over a cubic metre of logs. The low wide design provides opportunities to store logs in lots of locations in your garden. See our review.
The larger log store from Rutland County Garden Furniture the XL Double 6′ Wooden Log Store is also very popular and is sold by Amazon, it has similar dimensions to the XL Double 4′ Wooden Log Store but is six feet tall. This is a quality store, hand made from solid pressure treated timber with a space for around two cubic metres of logs. See our review.
Our customer vote for the best value small store goes to the Store-Plus Log Store from Shedstore. This is a small store for a small price: £89.99 and free delivery, but with a decent space (1 cubic metre), good quality materials and a 15 year anti-rot warranty.
This store is also a big hit with users. Customer feedback confirms that the this store is sturdy and easy to assemble. See our review.
Our Best Value Wood Stores
A couple of the cheapest log stores we can find are the Wooden Log Store (467) from Amazon, which costs just £76.95 plus £4.99 shipping. So that is a sturdy wood store delivered to your door for less than £80. It has a big capacity at nearly 1 cubic metre of space, and includes a felt roof. At Amazon most reviewers have given the wood shed five stars because it was easy to assemble and really sturdy when built. We reckon this is a bargain, and we don’t know how long it will be around at this price. See our review.
Another value wood store costs just £85.99 which is around half the price of many similar stores with a decent 1.1 cubic metre space. The wood is dip treated against rot. The Winchester Single Log Store is available from Shedsworld and in our view is such good buy that it may be cheaper than building your own store out of old pallets and wood. See our review.
Great Value and Sturdy Design
Both these single bay log stores from Rutland County Garden Furniture are sturdy, tough and would look good in any garden. The wood used is responsibly sourced and guaranteed against fungal attack for 15 years. However although both are premium products, they offer really good value. The 4′ Single Log Store is available from Amazon for £95 and has a 0.5 cubic metre capacity. See our review.
Fantastic Value and Fully Assembled!
If you are looking for a big good value log store that you don’t have to build yourself, then the Touch-Wood Wooden Log Store which is sold by Amazon, could be what you are looking for. It comes ready assembled, or is built for you on site, using treated tanalised timber and an attractive feather edge boarding roof. The big 1.7 cubic metre space, a 15 year anti-rot warranty and ready built for £175 is unbeatable. See the review
