Not that big of a deal if you're buying from BIG oil, your attorney can craft the purchase agreement such that the company retains the liability of releases. If your buying it from Eddy Joe Jim Bob that's another story.

Still in the planning stages.
The idea is to use an off the shelf prefab steel building as a base, then use as many recycled re-purposed materials as possible.
It will be in the Mojave, the moving sunshade will be on air plane landing gear and tract with the sun.



front is a guestroom/office, back is the service bay

What are you expecting the moving sunshade to do?
That is, I do not see what it is shading, or shading effectively.

If you really want to get into sliding bits, check this out:

Well done! It looks nice there.
Carpet tiles a good way to sort out a crappy old concrete floor. Not expensive, the insulation's useful, and sockets and screws don't roll so far.
