Hi Wade, everyone.

I converted a 10x30ft shipping container for our solar powered 
workshop.  Everything we create is open source, not had time/capacity to 
get the build online yet but happy to share how we built it/photos/etc.  
Essentially I built a timber frame inside with rockwool insulation, clad 
this with 18mm ply (9mm is adequate but I had to work with what I could 
get), fitted 6 x 250W solar panels on the roof and built a power unit 
incorporating an isolator switch, leading to a Victron Energy charge 
controlled to feed 2 x 100Ah Lead Crystal batteries in a vented secure 
workbench.  All workbenches, toolboards built from same materials, 
surfaces on the main benches 3mm aluminium sheeting, dibond on two 
[upcycled building hoardings].  All lighting is LED and 12V, I fitted an 
inverter to power laptop, oscilloscope (to check not std eBike PAS units 
etc), charge drills and run our soldering station.
