I'd pay attention to which side would be the cooler side most of the day and find the tallest part of the structure. Place a low vent on the cool side and place a vent at the tallest part of the structure. Hot air rises. It will draw all by itself. If you want some improvement to that, the high vent could be one of the "turbine" styled vents. imho!

I've seen large vents specifically made for shipping containers, with mesh to keep rodents out and matching the countours of a container. They're pretty expensive, though.

If you planned to use one as a workshop or something similar, I think in addition to venting that insulation would be your friend as well. Mostly to keep the heat out, and in cooler weather to keep it warm. If you google, there is lots of information about converting shipping containers into workshops.

When you don't know what you're doing, it's best to do it quickly.

And when Iím gone, you can call me foolish but hopefully not boring. I will have lived.

The more I learn about women, the more I like my car.

Progress. We decided to start by welding patches with 14 gauge stock.
