We made this shed from a plan called an “Irish Shed.” The walls are cedar logs that we cut from our property and placed on their sides, secured with a special mortar mix. The frame is made from four-by-six treated lumber with lap joints and rebar through them (very strong). I made the door from cedar boards.
Check your water heater thermostat. Many manufacturers set thermostats to 140 degrees, although most households only need a setting of 120 degrees. Each 10 degree drop in water temperature can save you between 3 and 5 percent in energy costs.
