Oh forgot to update this. Siding is now installed! Also did soffits and fascia (all the metal stuff on top)








I had 2 weeks off, but it went by WAY too fast, this is pretty much the only thing I did. I hardly saw the 2nd week. It's like I went to bed on Sunday and woke up on Thursday. I feel like I only got a few days because of how fast it went.

Thanks, looking forward to organizing everything in there and clearing the garage. That's my next project, I want to insulate the garage and turn it into a workshop, but there's too much stuff in there right now.

Ramp is done!





At this point it's more or less done, just need to do some stuff inside like shelving, and then I can start organizing everything. Debating on if I do the permanent solar system now, or wait. I'm probably going to end up waiting. Though I'm looking at getting roof solar panels at the very least for this year. I will just tie them into the existing charge controller provided it can handle the voltage. I THINK it's ok to give a charge controller more amps than what it can handle as it's only going to draw what it can, but I will need to do more research. I do plan to get a beefier charge controller. The one I have is like maybe 7 amps or something.

Shelves are in! Took a while, since it was always so hot out so was not working on it.

Went with a rather simplistic design, but it's strong enough, I can sit on those fine. I made the side ones high enough so I can easily walk under so it does not feel clausterphobic, and leaves plenty of room for things that can just hang off the wall.

Now I need to actually organize everything. I just threw everything randomly for now to get the floor less cluttered. Lot of that stuff is tools etc that won't actually be stored there once it's fully done. That's another thing I need to organize, my tools. They're all over the place, some in the house, some in the shed, some in the garage... That's a whole other project and a half.












Oh and the really crude temporary solar setup:



Eventually that will be in a proper panel, and I'll have some automation to monitor voltage, shut power if it's low, etc. That black box used to do just that, but I moved to a bigger charge controller and battery so not using that box anymore.

Started on the roof solar system. It's rain season so not getting much done but I did manage to get the racking and one panel up. Will have to take it down and readjust stuff and possibly look at rust proofing the unistrut as it's already starting to rust, but at least I'm more or less set now.

Next step will be to wire things more properly as its temporary right now.

Forgot to update this. All solar panels are up and wired in. 400w total rating. I get around 50w actual since we don't get lot of sun here.



This is an older pic, we have snow on the ground now.

If things in the US keep going the way they are going could I maybe come rent out your shed?

Haha yeah things are pretty toxic politically in the states right now. Shocked It's not perfect here but not even close to as bad.

Weed is legal now too. Very Happy Speaking of which... might need to move some stuff around in the shed to make room if you want to move in.
