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!

Curtains and the Great Flood !
Katie has been making the curtains for the kitchen and bathroom. I never was much of a seemstress ! I hung the rods and i'm working on the seams in the floor where the trailers meet. I use to do bodywork and came up with the idea of using body putty to smooth out the seams after grinding them down. They will be painted black like the metal areas of the trailer floor. We also had a nasty storm come thru our area and it flooded the pasture. In the future i am going to have to widen the creek even more. We have to large hillsides on either side and the whole hollow funneling down our stream. Good thing we built up on high ground , cause the house is way out of harms way. Things you must consider when building !
