A lot of people have converted to gas fireplaces, but if you still burn wood, you need to store it to keep it dry and usable. Lots of people end up with a wood pile in the back yard and a tarp over the top, but that isn't the most efficient wood storage method. Additionally, if you have the wood up against your home you are basically issuing an invitation to termites and carpenter ants.
Now you can get specially designed wood storage racks that keep wood off the ground and that are made of metal designed not to rust and to weather winter. They also come with specially designed covers to keep the wet off your wood.
