    Open Stair Step make a great way to store batteries in a bank. Just cut or
    buy the stair step runners the height you have room for and add wide step
    boards, which can be 2 X 4s because they are only holding batteries. This
    way they are open and easy to maintain. Maintenance tools and connections
    can be stored under the stairs. This is how we did it in the factory I
    worked in where we had to have batteries for switching high voltage switch
    gear on a battery backup system.

    Hi one thing if you have not already have done is get those batteries in a
    sealed vented box I see you have inverter other electronic equip on the
    same rack if you get a spark could ignite the gases the batteries will give
    out.and you will find AGM or Gel sealed batteries are the best I have
    found. I have here in AU just done a Dual system in my home mains power as
    well as “Stand alone solar” to get it certified it has to meet many “safety
    and health” regulations.

    Thanks for the helpful advice. There have been a few modifications and the
    batteries have had to be moved. I have taken on board your wisdom and will
    incorporate it as best I can. I will put up a video within the next month
    or so.Cheers Paul

    Nice video, glad to see you like to work smarter not harder. There is
    something to be said for spending a little more to ensure that it’s right,
    rather than saving money and maybe screwing up and ruining your stuff.

    Why shipping containers, why not a barn style type of garage (big) that
    affords more room for the mind. Either way Paul, I think you’ve one an
    exceptional job. You should be pleased with yourself. Many dream, few
    succeed..! Cheers mate.

    Thank you for the encouragement. I started building it and wasn’t sure if
    it would be a weekender and did not know if it was realistic to live in the
    bush. Containers seemed like a good starting point. We like the bush and
    they are transforming gradually. Cheers Paul

    Hi. this is a great video! Im doing a similar research project in
    university and i would like to know what kind of inverters you used, how
    long does the battery take to charge up, and discharge. Also what is the
    lifespan of the battery? Im really just starting and don’t know where to
    start. Would appreciate it very much if you could pinpoint me! Greetings.

    Hi zaftg337, Thank you. I have almost completed a book on the project and
    the battery chapter will answer all your questions. If you give me an email
    address I will sent you a free copy and you can pick out the bits that
    help. There is also a chapter about inverter selection. Good luck with your
    university. Cheers Paul
