How far from the house should firewood be?
Question: Is it safe to store firewood next to the house? How far away from the house does firewood need to be?
Answer: Firewood storage attracts a number of pests including termites, other insects, and rodents. When you put firewood next to a building foundation, it's like leaving their favorite food right outside your door. I recommend that you keep any firewood at least five feet or more away from the foundation. It should also be stored in racks above the ground.
