Water Heater Advice for Shepherds Hut

Postby ddub7666 » Wed Apr 11, 2018 1:56 pm

I am building a Shepherds Hut that will be 16ft by 8ft. I want to fit it out with a shower/toilet room and kitchen area and will require hot and cold water for the shower, bathroom basin and kitchen sink. What would be the most effective water heating setup to provide hot water to the 3 outlets at an acceptable flow rate?

-Plumbed pipe distance between kitchen sink and shower = 5 meters minimum.
-Plumbed pipe distance between kitchen sink and bathroom basin = 4 meters minimum.
-Bathroom Basin and Shower are 1m apart.
-A 240v mains electricity supply will be coming into the hut.

-Water heaters that store hot water would not be ideal as I want to save space and reduce weight in the hut.
-The heating device(s) can be located next to the kitchen sink or shower or both.

Any help on this would be greatly appreciated.
