My husband designed and built a woodshed in our backyard. The shed is made out of wood from Douglas Fir trees to contain firewood for our fireplace from mostly beech, birch, ash, oak and similar trees from a local forest.

Over the years, it has become an "insect hotel" with dozens of different types of insects and hundreds of inhabitants. The nature groups encourage us to offer such environments for insects, since the new housing development has taken away their natural habitat.

The first winter I made the mistake of keeping a basket full of logs for the fire right next to the fireplace inside the house so I wouldn't have to go out into the cold to get wood to feed the fire. I learned quickly just how many insects reside on a piece of firewood. It took weeks to get them out of the house.

You might recognize the woodpile, since I often use it as the backdrop for photos.

When we sit on our patio, the woodshed gives us the atmosphere or feeling like we are on vacation in the Alps.
