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!

The heat & humidity have been tough to work in the house. With no insulation at the moment the metal gets hot. The temp was 107 yesterday , with the windows open. I got the floor section removed for the cellar steeps, what a b...h ! I snapped off 2 phillip head bits trying to remove the bolts that hold down the wood , they won't come out. So i had to cut thru the wood floor with sawzall and circular saw , to expose the steel supports. Then with my gas torch and sawzall , i cut out the opening. Then i chained the floor to the walls upstairs so it would'nt fall thru. My neighbor stopped by and asked me if i wanted help lowering the floor, ah sure ! We lowered it , carried it out , it had to weigh like 500 lbs. , Thanks Vinny & Teresa ! Next is to layout the stringers for the steps and bolt a head board to mount them to. Tommorow its suppose to cool down , i hope.
