Island Earthship Build: Week 3. Day 15. ‘Roof Work and Solar Panels’

These Volunteer Carpenters are working on finishing the Wing Wall roofs over the main house airlocks. These two roofs also will add square footage to the overall roof Catch Water System… Also on the roof, the interns have the opportunity to learn how to properly measure, cut, and bend the Pro-Panel sheets into ‘Metal Origami’ that will be installed as the Flashing and Ridge Caps for all the Vent Boxes, and Battery Boxes atop the roof. Let me just say, I enjoyed this part, however it definitely takes practice and experience to do it well. It’s an expensive mistake if you mess up on just one little cut or bend.
