Firewood Shed

I'm not sure if I posted this in the right forum but maybe someone can answer my question.

My father is building me a firewood shed. I've only seen them with an open face. He strongly suggests that we put a door on the front of it to protect the wood.
I told him that I've never seen them with doors.
How can the wood breath?

Any thoughts?

Welcome to the forums

I don't think it will make much difference. It is always best to stack wood in a criss cross pattern to promote air circulation. IMO the best reason to not have a door/closed front is with it open it is easier to bring in and stack the wood.

Wood Shed

Leave off the door. The wood needs plenty of air circulation to season properly. As long as it is protected from above, that is all the protection required.
