We had a lot of fun with experiments on the north container wing. It’s finally ready for habitation and we are so pleased with the results. This container has worked out be so cozy and is really a friendly space. It’s going to be the perfect living space for winter and we don’t expect it to be too hot for winter. We were excited to be able to release our north wing interior reveal in April 2021.

South Wing Interior Reveal

After many months of hard work we are finally able to reveal the full interior of the south wing of our container house project. This blue and white interior matches perfectly with the exterior of our somewhat nautical themed house made from shipping containers. This section is now liveable so we can now more onto other sections of the house and slowly finish off bits and pieces of this side as we find the time to do so.

All the Concrete Footings Are Cast

It was an exciting day when the last of the concrete footings were cast! The blocks of concrete is what the shipping containers will sit on. This is what will support our house and make it stable and safe to live in. We required twelve footings to anchor the containers to the ground. This is a very important aspect of the project.
