Our woodshed is near the driveway, where it is easy to load directly from our pickup. Unfortunately its loading bay faces into the weather, so I had to add a door to protect our firewood from rain and snow. As shown in the drawing, I used some leftover steel roofing panels that match our roof to make a removable wall.
At the top, the panels are held captive by the header and the fascia. At the bottom they are secured by the threshold on the inside and a row of fence staples on the outside. A space at the top of the panels gives me enough room to lift them out when I need to open the shed.
I’ve found that the 7-ft. high by 2-ft. wide roofing panels are sturdy enough to stand up to a strong wind. Lapped in the intended manner, they haven’t leaked, and the structure looks right at home next to our house.
