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!

Runnin' good !
The last few days i have been working on our creek. The temp has been 40-50 and sunny and hard for me to work indoors. See, our creek is like 750 yards long and in need of clean out. The property was used for raising cattle and growing hay before we bought. Nobody worried about how the creek flowed. In the past we had alot of rain and the creek overflow which made our pastures very wet.We now make hay and have plans to raise chickens and pigs, so we need it dry. Some old trees trunks and erowding dirt have filled in the creek in places and restricted the flow. So with the backhoe , chain and a chainsaw , i cleaned it up. In the pictures you will notice there was a sharp turn that i straightened out and filled the turn with tree trunks. This will be our fill area for the moment, till its full.The creek runs much faster and i can't wait till the next heavy rainfall to see how i did !
