Firewood Storage

Having trouble finding the appropriate forum... if this isn't it, can someone please direct me to one.

I am planning to build a firewood storage 'shed' and have had past problems with termites. It will measure: 3' deep, 15' long, 6-7' high. I am well aware of all the precautions to take when storing firewood: circulation, off the ground, keep dry, etc. My main concern is the structure itself... I want to keep pest problems to a minimum and have the structure last for a long, long time.

What advantages dissadvantages are there between regular lumber, pressure-treated lumber, and steel studs? I have never worked with steel, but many say that is the sure-fire away to keep bugs away when used with cedar and adequate ventilation.

Termite problems vary by locale. In general, they are less of a problem, if the wood is not in contact with the ground. Ground contact pressure treated wood and a concrete slab will help. Of course, you can add this structure the termite program you have on your house.
