Early start to winter? Building a wood rack

I spent the last two evenings finishing a small storage shed for our fire wood.  It's about 2 feet wide, 4 feet tall and 40 feet long, and holds enough dry wood to keep us out of trouble for a while;)  Oh, and it cost $0 as it's made from salvaged wood and sheet metal.  We started heating primarily with wood about two years ago, when we got a new high-efficiency wood stove.

It was an ebay find for only $250 dollars (and a short drive to the edge of Kansas!)  Amazing little unit heats the whole house.  Lowe's was selling these a couple of years ago for >$800!  It has "afterburner" tubes to introduce air into the exhaust;  when it's going full tilt, you can't even see any smoke.
