OUR CONTAINER HOME.We wanted to build our own home, but do something different. After lots of research we have built a home from shipping containers.The blog goes back to before we started to present. 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!

Happy Birthday Katie !
We stayed for a few days in October to install the stove upstairs. We found it was too cold in the containers without any insulation, to sleep in there. We did noticed there was about a 15 degree difference in temperature between the floors, the basement being warmer. So we decided to move all our stuff downstairs, so when we came back with another stove for the basement, we would be set.We came back in November with a soapstone stove, i bought on ebay and we got it in there and i used the existing chimney to exhaust. Now we have everything , well almost ! This is where the title of this post makes sense. Up until now we have been using the bucket for a toilet . So i promised to Katie that for her birthday i would install a real toilet. So i built a subfloor , installed the toilet . Happy Birthday Katie !
