Now we are close to done but it's been such fun sharing with are followers, we blog everyday things.I have lots of experience in the construction field so i was confident in our ventures. We love what we have done and love sharing it with you. Enjoy!

Sealing the roof !
We plan on finishing the roof with trusses and a metal roof. But until then we just need to seal the seams where the containers come together. So for the time being, i took that rubber roofing (sticky on one side) cut it like 4" wide and stuck it down covering the seams. Next i got a couple of buckets of roof & foundation sealer ( same stuff i sealed the foundation with ) and covered the rubber,overlapping the edge. It worked well , no leaks in the basement from there, just alittle coming in where the container meets the sill. I have an idea for that, i think will fix it , let you know how it works out when i attemp it.
