http://grandsolarpower.com/indoorgreenhouse/ : "The shed-type has a long axis running from the east to the west. It has a south-facing wall glazed to collect maximum amount of the energy from the sun. The north-facing wall on the other hand is very much insulated to avoid heat loss. These features are what contrast a solar greenhouse from the ordinary ones."

The shortest end of my greenhouse is south-facing (with opposite side facing north, of course.) It is not ideal, but it is what I have. I'd like for the north-facing side to look nice as it can be seen from the street. That is the side that should house the water-filled barrels, but that is not very attractive--also the door is right there, so it could only have a barrel on either side. Hmmm... maybe four barrels on each corner.
