Intro: Firewood Rain Protection That Stores the Rainwater

Since I needed a new shelter for the firewood on my balcony for the next winter, I wanted to build something with a bit more functionality. The new setup uses a plastic top that collects the rainwater and channels it to a tube. If you place a watering can underneath the tube, the watering can will always be ready and full when it rained and the sun shines again. You want to ensure that you have a slight drop to the right and to the front so the water will flow as you wish. Nothing fancy but still useful.

    Is that a door in the picture or just an oddly placed window?

    Looks like a sliding patio door to me
