We keep our 195RB Baja in the back yard. It's nice to put a couple chairs out under the awning in the evening and fire up the portable fire pit. I also open the windows and turn up the radio while working outside - like this weekend where the 2 cords of wood piled behind it need to get stacked in the wood shed. I currently have a dedicated 20amp circuit for this and have an upgrade to a 30amp planned for later this summer.

Yes it is. I built it about 13 years ago as a tool shed. The initial solar was added shortly after as a project I did with my youngest daughter who was about 14 at the time. We used it to charge all the various battery-powered tools plus run things like the hedge trimmer and weed whacker. It has 12v interior and timed exterior lighting plus a 12v temperature-controlled attic fan. It's grown over the years to 460watts of panels and a 3000watt inverter. About 3 years ago I converted it to a cattery where we have 2 of our current 7 feral rescue cats living.

We live in an older development with larger lots - ours is just over 1/3 of an acre and at the end of a dead-end road. The back of our lot is up against a pretty good sized and somewhat overgrown green belt. Unless you go around back you don't know it's there. We don't let any of our cats roam free due to coyotes that occasionally traverse the green belt moving from point A to point B.

Here's a shot of the 2 residents lounging....

Winter time hate shoveling the long driveway but summertime I am sure glad it is long enough to park our RV and get to play in it. Even have 50 amp service out there for it!
