May have gotten the idea from someone we know.

Evidently you did better without it. Because I hear that the winds could get up to 100 mph and even blew the roof off an adobe home recently.

Like Gene said, they stole your idea. Maybe you can make a deal with them and get a commission from every one that sells. . .

LOL..... i would trust your roof more. That roof is so overbuilt that it should be good for a hundred years.

John's roof is an amazing feat! Not only useful but turns shipping containers into something more appealing to the eye!

But I was always expecting John to convert one or more into living space... and I guess his thinking along those lines has changed... I never expected Johns plans to not change. He was and is on a journey and the paths to be taken are not pre-ordained.

Too bad the wind turbines did not work out.

Not nearly as good as yours but the pictured containers/roof set up still looks like it has possibilities. On a scale of 1-10 ... roughly how good of a deal would this be?

There was a guy on the west coast of Florida that did this more than 25 years ago near Tampa. He stacked 4 40 ft. containers about 40 ft. across from each other and spanned the roof over. He built commercial fishing boats under the span. The 2 bottom containers are office/ work shop and materials storage. He had a catwalk at the rear to get to the other top container. Enclose the ends and added roll up doors .The top 2 were living area. This was back when you could get used containers for next to nothing.There are also several of the big name metal building companies that offer roofs for containers, one is in S W Texas.
