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!

Solar panels !
Sorry, it took me so long to post something new, but we have been busy. The work on our current home is done & the house is up for sale ! So, Katie & I have been building our own solar panels , successfully ! I build the frames , mark and glue the solar cells on . Then Katie does her magic, by soldering the cells together. Soldering is her specialty , for years now she's been constructing tiffiny stained glass and does beautiful work. We have 4 panels built and plan to build at least four more before we move. This will give us a good start since we don't have electric there. We want to stay off the grid if at all possible. I am also researching on how to build my own wind turbine , since we get a nice breeze down that hollow.
