We have a bin constructed out of plywood that contains our bulk shavings. The dilemma we keep facing is in finding a tarp that will hold up, not disintegrate with the sun and is waterproof. Most of all, one that will last for more than a few months. What do you use? There must be something worth the money out there.... help!
We're planning to build something permanent next summer but for this winter I built storage using heavy plastic - the kind used for greenhouses. I built a simple greenhouse style roof frame out of 3/4" PVC pipe and covered it with this:
So far it has worked really well. Shavings are bone dry even after several torrential rainstorms and the plastic looks the same as it did the day I put the structure up... Unlike the tarp we have covering our woodpile, which is already degrading in the weather.
