It’s another day of ‘Liquid Sunshine’ for the Earthship build. Once again it’s a workout navigating the ‘Mosh Pit’.

Before any roof work can be done, it has to be squeegeed of all the water build up.

Once these large boxes are put into place on the roof, work can begin installing the Insulation around them.
