Another nutty idea: There are people who have created a network of little wooden platforms on their roof - and they have a container garden on their roof. You would get a lot more sun up there!
How hard is this to do? Clearly you don't want to make the containers too heavy or water them too much so that the roof starts to suffer. Is there a waterproof layer b/t the container and the roof. Can plants grow well if they're slanted down (like most roofs) or do you make the containers flat? Would certainly keep dogs and kids away!!
