I did the same last summer, built a shed (it’s in my project section) just for storing lumber and outdoor tools.
I never thought of acclimation as the purpose of the shed was to store stuff, period :)
But since it’s outside in the open air with the humidity and temp changes as compared to inside a more environment friendly secured, I would have to say yes… you would have to somewhat worry about acclimation. However, I would be more concerned in general, about drying the wood when bringing it home than acclimation.
In a perfect world, could bring home lumber and store in 65 degree low humidity room for a year before ready to use.
I have outdoor shed. I do not worry at all about acclimation. Maybe I should :)
