The room on the north side of the studio will be for the solar power electrical equipment and the battery bank. The room will eventually be separated by a wall with the other half for storage. Since this space is essentially a utility area, I decided to make the ceiling corrugated metal for cost and ease of assembly. You can special order heavy-gauge corrugated metal sheets from a building supply store.

I like mixing-up the materials in this building. The metal is not ancient Anasazi architecture for sure, but I was unable to locate the aged wood planks I originally wanted. This building is not about "intention" in design anyway. Rather the point is rather that the building is becoming its own eclectic style from the decisions made for various reasons along the way.

The photo below shows about 5-inches of cob in a lighter mix (mostly straw to reduce the weight), that will be part of the evolving roof structure you will see posted in the coming weeks.
