Michael - Expanding a file server with only one hard drive with ZFS

Hey guys, so these are the notes I have from one of the things Allan
helped me with previously.

original question:

So I started with a rebuild of HardenedBSD server at home (which is
FreeBSD with extra application security mitigation) and I have ZFS on
Root with a 1TB drive.

I found another similar drive that was not in use, and saw that I
could create a mirror and add the new drive for redundancy. I ended up
with this.

I needed more disk space so I purchased 2 4TB drives, but because of
the way I created the mirror, I was not sure how to proceed with this
configuration. What are my options to add more disk space to this
server?
