I saw an interesting indoor grow system with a rotating  drum and a light inside. The plants faced in and the nutrients were in  a pan below. they rotated once and hour passing through the nutrients I think.

Fibergalss topper? Is that a truck cap, if so they make nice low sheds.

The ladder rack could make a cold bed frame for remay cloth or plastic, it might need a ridge pole.

Dryer drum if you have some bearings and a steel rod would make a great rotating composter.Or a cement mixer.Ladder rack can be turned upside down and hung from the cieling joists to hold long stuff in the shop.Fiberglass cap is a good shed roof or animal roof.

Truck caps (is that what you've got??) make good shed roofs and animal houses.  Seen that lots of times.  Set up on posts they make a really sweet cover for a woodpile. 

I love the drum-as-composter idea.  Might have to try that one myself. 

Where at in WV are you???  I was born and raised 28 years in the Mon Valley.  Learned most of what I know up Eddy Street on "N*gg*r Knob" in Fairmont and up a holler near a little place called Wadestown.

I'm in Arkansas now.  The Ozarks really are the Appalachians gone west.  Nice place, except for the ticks.  Nice, but not home. 

Soooo jealous.  If you're anyplace but the extreme Eastern Panhandle, you really are almost to Heaven.  Look at the maples for me.  We have a few, but it's too warm for them to be prevalent.
