    I would have insulated it and installed drywall.

    Nice job. Not necessarily the kind of shed I'd build, but several good ideas to take away from this nonetheless. Hopefully you've added some gable or ridge venting by now.

    Looks great. I think the only thing left to add is a shop vacuum system

    Those guys who built the shed could build you one on the weekend or afterhours for probably 1/3rd the price cash.

    Wow, so many negative comments.  I just appreciate the how to on Solar.  Question, why 2 6v batteries.  Most I have seen use 12v deep cycle.  I am looking to power a warehouse with 2 or 3 20amp breakers that run about 40 LED lights on 1 or 2 of the breakers and a camera system on another.  Not a lot of power needed.  The lights are on timer switches and used maybe 4 times a week for about 20 minutes each and the cameras run 24/7.  Any recommendations?
