Pro-Panel roof panels are long and awkward to carry through the remaining soggy ‘Mosh Pit’.

Placing these long metal panels into place is easier with many hands.

The Pro-Panel roof panels are part of the roof top rain water catch system, which will run back into the gutters, and the two Silt Catches on top of the Water Cisterns behind the Earthship. Eventually the only thing visible will be the Cistern ‘Turtle Necks’, when the final Berm is completed.

The Pro-Panels are also installed on the front of the Greenhouse , as shown on the Studio Earthship.
