Our Irish shed
Gary and Louise Rascoe, Bahama, Piedmont EMC
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.

Energy Efficiency Tip
Air is drawn into your home from low areas, so inspect your foundation for potential air-infiltration points. Fixing these leaks makes a bigger impact on your electric bill than sealing doors and windows! Caulk all cracks and gaps around your home, including spaces around wires for telephone, electrical, cable, and gas lines, water spigots, and dryer vents.
