Our first Christmas gifts? Today the surveyors marked our footers and gave us the green light to start laying blocks. Hooray! Also, a dear friend is giving us her 25 foot temporary electric pole. It’s a you-haul situation and although Ryan was able to successfully dig it out of 4 feet of compacted red earth, he was not single handedly able to load and transport it. In due time.
Hi! We are Ryan and little Soleil and we’re building a shipping container home. We purchased and preped our land. We will torched and welded 2 steel rectangular crates into a house shape. We hunted down recycled, refurbished, low cost and free construction materials. We mastered DIY. We documented it all, so you can build one too. We’ll did it all for $145,000. Please enjoy. Throw in your advice and your amazing ideas. Right now, we’re eating up positivity and support to fuel us for the joyful adventure ahead. OK already, let’s go! View all posts by shippinghome
