Yup its true! Large steel containers get extremely hot! Even thick insulation has troubles fighting off them temps, so decided to paint the whole container the same elastomeric paint that I painted the roof with.
Dropped the temps a good 30 degrees on the exterior walls. Inside the container stays a few degrees cooler then the outside until late afternoon when it catches up to the real temp. A little warmer then I like but livable.
Southern wall white for now. Would eventually like to build a removable shade cloth to shade it in the summer, and catch that heat in the winter. If you look closely there have been a few solar panels mounted to the roof. Also the yagi is up on the left front corner getting some blazing 4G out here in the boonies. With electricity and internet all inside Ive officially been living inside for 3 weeks as I continue to build.
North side with more solar will get to the solar set up in the next post.
Attic vents in the front
With a small whirly in the back should provide enough ventilation for the attic
Turtles a bit jealous got a good deal on a lil runner making trips to town much easier, and economical.
