Solar Shed Part 18: Resolving Water Ingress

I haven’t posted much about my office lately, simply because there just hasn’t been much to post.  It works - very, very well.  I have most of the quirks worked out, I stay cool in the summer, warm in the winter, and dry in the rain.  Except, my office wasn’t always dry, and it took me a few years to realize this.

How might you test? Just use a garden hose on a firm (but not hurricane type) spray and spray it down solidly for a few minutes over each spot and check for water ingress on the side and corners and such?

Thanks for the update on the solar shed. I’m excited to hear more about this battery trailer situation. :slight_smile: I’d also love to see your wall-mounted monitors and some general updated photos of the interior. Particularly curious about your small-space organization system for tools, parts, batteries, etc etc.

Typically I just wait for it to rain with a south wind. This explains why it’s been such a long standing problem - those conditions are fairly rare.

I’ve posted some interior photos a while back. It hasn’t changed that much since then. Just a corner with a lot of monitors. It’s actually a pain to get my office cleaned up enough for photos…

I have wall mounted storage containers from Home Depot or such that I use for small parts, and batteries tend to remain in boxes until used.
