Today started with snow and ended with cutting the first hole out of our containers. We cut out the guest bathroom window and put in the frame. The 60ft of extension cord would not power the plasma cutter correctly and after spending a while confirming this, I cut the rest of the hole out with my grinder. The frame fit perfectly on the left and right side but the corrugation messed up our cutting line and so we have some gaps in the top and bottom which we will fill. Now we know we must measure from the top down and bottom up for every valley in the corrugation so we get the horizontal lines precise. We also know we need a generator. Fun. Another expense we were not planning on. Guess thats just part of building a home!
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
