Harnessing the Sun for Your Home Key Components


Using the power of the sun is becoming increasingly attractive from an economic and environmental aspect. If youre going solar, you need to know the components.

Solar Components

While generally considered electric platforms, solar systems definitely have unique components. Heres some of the jargon you are going to need to be familiar with before buying.

1. Photovoltaic Cell This is the key piece of any solar platform. Known as a PV cell, it is typically a small cell containing a silicon substance under glass. When the sun hits the cell, the silicon undergoes an electrical reaction that creates a charge. The charge is collected by small wires. Depending on the nature of the cell, each should produce roughly half a volt.

2. Solar Panel A collection of solar cells joined as a unit in a frame. A single panel typically is insufficient to produce enough energy to power anything of significance in your home.

3. Solar System Also known as a photovoltaic system, a solar system is an interconnected set of solar panels. This is what you see on the roofs of home or other areas around homes and buildings. A solar system converts enough sunlight into electricity to provide most or all of the power required by a home.

4. Orientation Before installing a panel system, one has to give some thought regarding where to put it. The sun tracks across a structure in a particular way. To maximize the energy production, the panels have to be oriented to receive the maximum amount of sunlight. This, of course, results in the maximum amount of electricity.

5. Direct Current A type of electricity that flows in only one direction. Solar cells produce direct current electricity.

6. Alternating Current Electricity that flows in both directions. AC power is used by utilities and in practically all appliances and machines in a home.

7. Inverter A key component in a solar panel system. The inverter converts the direct current produced by the solar panels into AC power that can be used in the home or fed back into a utility power grid system.

Obviously, there are a wide variety of systems for converting sunlight into power. Making yourself familiar with the above components is a good place to start.

Summer Houses & Log Cabins

Do you want a little hiding place in your garden? What about an extra office space outside? A party room or a playroom for the kids? If you have enough space in your garden , consider buying a summer house or log cabin.

What is the Difference between a Summer House and a Log Cabin?

summer  house

The main difference between garden log cabins and summer houses is the size. Summer houses are more on the smaller side of things while log cabins are usually a little more sturdy and bigger. Log cabins can be a year round option if you have a garden big enough and go for an insulated cabin. Summer houses are mainly for the warmer months as the name suggests.

While log cabins always have a rectangular footprint , summer houses can come in rectangular , hexagonal and corner floor designs. Based on the floor plan , summer houses can have different roof constructions as well and can even look like little pavilions. Corner summer houses are very useful designs that can be fit into garden corners to use up as little space as possible.

Cladding , Roof Types & Special Features

Decide if you need single or double doors , how many windows you want to have , how big they should be and if you would like a veranda for your summer house or log cabin. Next to these little features you have to make decisions about basics like roof structure and cladding.

The simplest form of roof type are flat or pent roofs. Pent roofs are flat roofs that are higher on one end of the summer or garden house , usually the front , to allow rain to run off the roof easily.

Apex roofs are a type of gable roof that have two pitched roof sides that run down on either side of a ridge board. The doors of a log cabin or summer house with an apex roof are on the side of the gable. In the case of a reverse apex roof , the door or doors are on either of the roof sides of the cabin or house.

Hip roofs have a roof side on all four walls of the summer house or garden cabin. In the case of a pyramid roof , all roof sides are triangles. They can be found on summer houses or sheds with a square floor design. A simple hip roof has two triangular sides and two trapezoid sides.

Gazebo roofs are gently tented roofs that can be found on hexagonal summer houses and similar pavilion structures.

Cladding usually comes in two basic varieties: overlap or feather-edge , and tongue & groove. Overlap clad wall constructions have boards that simply overlap one another. Tongue & groove on the other hand has interlocking boards. A special type of tongue and groove cladding is shiplap which is supposed to be the most weather resistant of all three constructions for summer houses and garden cabins.

Decorate your Summer House

Space and your personal taste are the only limits on how to approach interior design for your summer house. Style the windows with curtains , hang up pictures and add ornaments. And , of course , do not forget outdoor cushions , rugs , blankets , a wind chime , outdoor candles and all the other small but important items to add that extra layer of comfort to your little home from home.

Install lights or use lanterns and set up a small table and chairs and maybe a bookcase or bench and your cabin and summer house are all set up for cosy evenings outside in your garden no matter what the weather will be.

Planning Permission for Garden Buildings

Please make sure that you are allowed to set up your dream summer house or log cabin in your garden. For some sites , heights and features like balconies or verandas you might need a permission for garden building like houses , cabins , sheds or garages. Check with the local authorities to make sure you can enjoy your new summer house or log cabin for a long time.

    Delivered earlier than stated, assembly instructions very easy to follow. It took me 3/4 hours to assemble. Good quality for the price range. Looks very smart in our decking. Friends and family have all commented on how nice it looks.

    Ordered 2 for my kitchen as end chairs. They came fully assembled and packed very securely. Fairly comfortable to sit on for long periods of time. This chair is well built and pretty, very happy with this purchase.

    I am so glad o bought this sofa set. I purchased it as I thought it seemed good value for money and also everyone else’s reviews really sold it to me. I built it myself, it did take a few hours but it was straightforward enough and the instructions were clear. We got it in time for Easter weekend and the weather was glorious so we made good use of it. I love it, it’s so comfortable and it’s lovely and big too so we can all sit on it. I love it and pray for sunny days so we can use it. I’ve put a throw on it as well just to make sure the kids don’t run the cushions. The only reason I took a star off is because the delivery I felt was just not very accommodating. Your not given a choice of dates and I got a date which was no good to me as I had to work. I had no idea how to rearrange the delivery and tell them I wasn’t in, only be chance the delivery was delayed by two hours which meant I just managed to arrive outside the house a few minutes after the delivery van. I think www.boisecloggers.com need to a look at a way that some agreement can be reached over the day the item is delivered.

    I bought one for firewood for near our fire pit, and the other holds towels in case someone forgets theirs near the pool. Never any problems with rain getting in and the extra seating is helpful. Holds even our larger friends

    Looks cute in front of my pond. It’s held up since last summer. Got knocked down a few times from a storm but no damage. I honestly don’t see it lasting more then a few years as it’s cheaply made wood . It will definitely already need a paint job this summer. But it does it job and looks nice.

    The storage seat is so sturdy and was so easy to put together. It is much bigger than I expected. It looks so nice on our deck and the grandkids love to sit on it. I loved being able to hide stuff in it this summer. I will bring it inside to our family room so the kids can still use it all winter. I'll use it to keep their toys out if the way also. So glad I took a chance and ordered it.

    Bought my pot to use a lily pad solar fountain in was perfect for this as no drainage holes in it.I like the pot because it's made of light material but looks substantial.

    Delivered quickly, easy to assemble but the lid doesn’t stay up so it is tricky to put cushions away.

    I think it is still too cold we’re we live to assemble the swing. I do know I have been researching stand alone swings for I while and this is the one I always went back too. Excited for warmer weather!

    This bench is light enough to move easily and still have the room for two adults enjoying a beverage with the flip table. Very nice.

    Set up was super easy!! I didn’t even need to use the nails they sent with it, I could use regular thumbtacks and they stayed up just as well. The size is a bit smaller than portrayed in the stock photos, but other than that I’m super happy with the color and style! They look amazing in my room.

    Ample storage in a robust and well dimensioned box. Easy to put together and clear instructions. One star lost as the top cover has a small crack which was there on delivery and I'm awaiting for www.boisecloggers.com to get back to me in order to rectify. It has been a few days and no response, however given the current Covid19 situation, this is more than understandable. Let's hope it does not rain in the meantime! ;)

    Easy to make up, but don't do like me and stupidly put it together in my lounge, and couldn't get it out the French doors, so had to dis-assemble to do this. Comfortable to sit on. I would definitely recommend varnishing it.

    I was initially pleased with my purchase which was attractive and sturdy. However, as soon as it rained the item became rusty around the back and seats, this within a week of purcase. So disappointed, completely unable to use the seats now as this would stain clothing.
