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!

LIFE IS GOOD !
We finished adding the 2 other components to the solar system , the charge controller and the inverter. The last few nights we have watched tv , used the computer and lit some lights , all without the generator. It's nice at night , when it's quiet , not to here the generator. Quess we did it right ! Then i finished the steps , i cut my first set of runners , what a challenge ! Also , we wanted to start a garden , but don't have our tiller here. Surprise ! My neighbors are so great here , they brought there tractor over with the tiller and tilled it for us. Then Katie found me a helper in town . Our first job was to install an electric fence around it so critters don't get in and eat the plants. Again we went solar with the electric fence , its charging the batteries as i'm writing you . Tomorrow i can test it. I needed to rent a generator to start putting windows in but my other neighbor stopped down and yelled at me for not telling him i needed one. That night he brought me one i could borrow ! God i love it here in heaven ! I have the best neighbors ever !!! So tomorrow morning Bubba and I put in the first window ! Talk to ya then .....
