Thanks. Primarily built it for the shop. The lean-too was a bonus for the Airstream. Plus it gives me more rain water collecting footage. Mueller supplied the metal. Great folks to work with.

Check out Muellers financing. Got two years interest free available. No upcharge for it either, same as cash price. Passing on the house and the new shop (tears) to my daughter soon. I will replicate the shop/Airstream Port when we build us a smaller house on the other side of the ranch. I will go with Mueller again.

I'm following along as I have access to a low cost lot to store on that is isolated and out of view of anyone surrounded by forest. I have the option of putting a cover to keep the Airstream (to be purchased) out of the the weather (days upon months of contiguous rainfall, but hardly ever "cold").

One option I didn't see to use for "anchoring" would be helical piles/pier (aka screw piles) rather than concrete piers, the helical pile would resist "lifting" and are faster to install and likely a net lower cost...and could be removed (and reused?) in the future if needed. We are looking into using them to build the deck next to our house as we may not be able to get adequate traditional concrete footings in our setup.

Thought I'd toss out yet another variable for everyone to consider, helical piles. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Screw_piles

They are supposed to work well. Couple of different types. Looks like you do need to drive them with a power system and I doubt you will go to the difficulty of rotating them back out for reuse. But they are a cool idea. Look also at the use of foam. Recently saw an advertisement, but not able to review the content so may be a real bad concept. Note, a truck load of concrete is all you need to build a big deck. It's available at your local discount center. Pat

It is the PV array roof structure over the deck that adds complexity combined with some historical architectural/code limitations that likely prevent us from being able to attach the edge of the deck to the adjacent house as would be normal practice
