Thumbs up Re: Open or closed wood storage

With an oven like this one that sat over a wood pile that looks like this, who in their right mind would put a door on it?? Hell the wood looks as good as the oven!

That pile of wood is a door! Nice, must of been a 'bear' to make.

Happy New Year

After finding a 3 ft + snake last summer - I'll be putting doors on. Since I currently have no door, I voted no door....

The big issue here is making the door fit snugly enough to keep the critters out - mice and snakes and get through ridiculously small openings.

I'll also make it so that it breathes well - I used some of the leftover bluestone from the steps to make strips to keep the wood off the floor.

As far as spiders - I put a few branches of eucalyptus in the wood storage areas and it seems to work well to keep them out. I was spraying the area - but taking the wood out and putting it back after spraying was a dull chore.

With tight fitting but ventilated doors, I think my pest issues will be over.

I'm not concerned with spiders so much, just the snakes. They like wood piles and shade in the hot summer. But you are right, the doors will have to fit tight.
