Well, while Im away I have been thinking a bit about a shed - well, two in fact.
One in the future is to be a garden shed - brew house, I just need more space.
The other is a self regulating manure generator collection depot -
or a shed for the bauld Delaney .
There are aspects of Delaneys datcha that I hope to get proof of concept from and incorporate elsewhere later.
So, stuck out in the middle of the Mediterranean, with nothing more than a box of cornflakes, I came up with a cunning and devious design.
The idea is two have a two part shed, one for food and one for shelter so he can come and go as he pleases.
It will also collect rain water so he has a simple source of fresh water at all times.
An open entrance will be protected by a shelter wall, and also face North East, away from the prevailing winds.
I hope the bugger appreciates the trouble I go to for him.
I am looking as well at underfloor heating systems, the idea being to use a small wind turbine to heat water that is piped through the floor plate, but that is still being researched.
Anyway, its a plan - and anything I learn from it I may be able to apply to another project.
Certainly the independent water, heat and perhaps even power ideas can have other applications elsewhere for others.
Now to try and get it done as cheaply as possible!!
Any advice on wind turbine to water heater most welcome
A lot more pics and ideas for this project on my garden blog
