Unlike gas central heating, the wood-burning stove requires solid fuel - yes, wood! And I would need somewhere to store the wood. Obviously there was need for a wood-shelter.
It is possible to purchase wood-shelters 'off the peg' as it were, but I decided to go for a bespoke wood-shelter. Here we see a local carpenter starting work on the build. I was surprised by how large the shelter was going to be, but was assured I would be able to reap the benefits of economies of scale.
