Positioning your log store so that it can effectively season your logs, should be a major consideration when it comes to choosing a site for your log store.
Most log stores are built with slatted wood that allows air to flow through, whilst also having a roof to keep rainfall off the wood. Preferably the roof should be slanted to the back so that you do not get even wetter when collecting wood in foul weather. Log stores, should be positioned with space all around so that they are well ventilated and the breeze can dry the wood. If the store is to be placed against a wall or fen,ce leave a space of at least 5cm (2 inches)
Try to position the log store pointing south so that the wood is facing the sun. This will warm the air circulating through the wood.
Ensure that the store is off the ground, most stores are built with an air gap beneath, however, consider adding a weed retardant membrane.
Ideally, fill the log store in the Spring so that there is plenty of time for the logs to season. It can take at least six months for new wood to lose sufficient moisture to burn efficiently.
