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!
Over the Memorial day weekend i formed and poured an apron off the back doors. We had a piece of plywood there for a ramp since we started this project , so i thought it was time for a real ramp. I will pull off the forms this week sometime.
So this is the ranch i now take care of . There is usually 12 horses at all times , we have 35 steer for roping. The next post i will show you the machinery i operate, because i can't post that many pics at once.
Ok, so the chickens came in last friday and their getting comfortable. We got 6 white , 6 brown and the rooster. He crows every morning and nite , its kinda cool. The best part is that if we have the windows closed our house is insulated so well you don't hear him. They hav'nt layed any eggs yet but they said a week or two, so maybe next week. They are well trained , they go out in the morning and come in at nite , without a problem. I took some pics this week of the ranch i work on and my next post i will share them with you.
Katie & i worked on finishing the run today , we got it done. The chickens are coming in on Friday so we wanted to be ready. I also got a steel drum to put the feed in with a lid so we could leave the feed outside.Since i built the egg box thru the back wall we can get them from the outside.
