My three containers are arranged in a "U" shape, with the opening facing south - for maximum passive solar gain, or sun exposure. It's already a great candidate for an enclosed workspace. So, I've decided to put a roof over it to protect the space and everything in it from the weather.

In the picture above, I'm welding support legs directly onto the containers to support the beams that will span the space and support the roof.

Later on, I will probably pour a concrete floor slab in the space, and maybe even build a wall with a large lockable door to safely enclose the work area.

The mountains in the background are the Sangre de Cristos, and the largest peak to the right is Taos mountain, which is sacred to the Taos Pueblo Indians and totally off-limits to everyone but them.

Hi there, how about sending me a happy good news message? When do you put a roof over your own head?
Cold, windy and rainy, what else is new?
