Arthur wall

Arthur wall

Joey took these great shots of an Arthur wall --- a heated wall to train espaliers against for freeze protection. Since fruit plants need lots of light, you'd probably only plant them against the south side (or the north side if you lived in Tasmania where these photos were taken). So what would you put on the opposite face to utilize all that heat? Perhaps a chicken coop to up your egg production?
