Allen and Arron finishing up the main part of the roof of the west side sunroom.
Each sunroom has a small skylight . That is what the silver thing sticking out of the roof is for.
This is the east sunroom that has the roof on it and 5 lower windows in. There are two windows yet to put in. We just have them temporarily setting in place. These windows will open from the inside. Allen has yet to design this and make it work.
The upper spaces will be for glass bottle windows. We are planning on having a diamond design in different colors for those windows.
This is the west side of the earthship with metal on it. We will cover the EPDM rubber with more dirt that will go up to the bottom of the metal.
Our neighbor, Robert Jones has been a blessing. Robert is on the ladder helping Allen finish that corner of the green house. The 3 silver boxes that are on top of the main green house are the 3 skylight boxes that will open and allow the green house to vent out the air and humidity. The sun room sky lights will operate the same way.
