Covered firewood storage structure plans?

I need a good plan for a covered firewood storage structure. I have looked all over the web. I found one one time, it holds about a cord, but need a much larger one. Does anyone know of a good plan or a site to get one. Do not want a shed just a free standing storage structure. Thank you
I know about firewood and the need to cover it. I need a plan to build a covered structure that looks good to hold my wood. I am looking for a plan.

I just now answered a wood splitting Q, and whether or not you want a "SHED" you should consider one.

If you read my answer, you’ll note that I have done split wood for indoor stoves, and I am amazed still, even in Florida, that people will spend the effort or cash for cord wood, then put it in anything that has any openings to the elements.

In any case, even in a shed, the wood to burn should be racked, and off ground or slab, Tarps and open, roofed construction might work well where there is no rain, or any possibility of seepage and moisture leaching from the ground, but even then in a period of High Dew points, your stored wood will absorb moisture.

Obviously OAK is the most common of cord woods, where available, and could take a month or more to DRY,,, perhaps longer to CURE/SEASON, IF it is kept away from the elements.

Just my two "sense"

    Freestanding still needs to be protected from the rain. I used a plastic tarp. The wood needs to be held up off the ground and air circulation is a must.
