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!

No electric or drain !
The electric co. didn't come out today , they must have been busy . Last i told you i was working on the bathroom. I installed the shower stall & toilet , but there are no drains yet. Since i hooked up the pex manifold, i was able to run a water line to the downstairs toilet. Before that we had a 55 gallon drum we filled with water, then scooped the water out with a pitcher to fill the toilet tank. Now it fills itself , automatically ! So i wanted Katie to enjoy the first shower in the new one. I havn't installed the drain pipe yet, so i ran a piece of pipe into the 55 gallon drum , then i dumped it outside. She loved it and so did i ! But remember , don't use the upstairs toilet yet , There's no drain !
