*It does all the graphics one would need to display an idea to a container home lover. **containar.homes** Easy. Effective. Must have. I especially enjoyed the auto-roofing option. It made a long story short, and did it with amazing lines.*
WOW.A man literally building and providing a home for his family. Rare. Cool. He is giving his family with a wonderful place to live. Roots.God bless and protect y'all.👍🇨🇱🇺🇸✝️🙏❤️
Well his wife helped too!!
When the naysayers told you to "hire a professional" for the drywall and mudding, I had no doubt that you would "become the professional". You seem to master everything that you do. GREAT JOB, BOTH OF YOU!!!!
This world NEEDS more Spencer’s. Kudos to you my man. The work you’ve done is absolutely inspiring. I hope the Lord blesses y’all continuously for choosing the path less traveled.
Just make sure that path doesn't stray from money. Money is God. Worship or die.
Man this is one of the gems that I picked up during LOCKDOWN and never dropped...Love seeing you guys...❤️
I caught the very first showing loved it right off very nice young couple. These two have grown thru out this venture his work ethic and her talent at putting this to together music film it all draws you in like you are a friend look n over the fence. Well done not enuff to say but well done
Spenc, Kenz, Beau, (lil’one), Bear and Iou have that effect on you. Yeah it’s a good one.
I make my boyfriend watch these and now he’s inclined to build us a home . I love you guys . So inspiring and cool .
@Marquis Smith What kinda sexist comment is this? Ew
@Marquis Smith never
@jfsoccervids I support but I will help to . I never said I wouldn’t
@Let It Roll I meant I show him the videos .
Hopefully you help him and not stand there taking selfies the whole time
Anyone else sad that this series is getting close to the end? I've enjoyed this whole process since the start of lockdown, pretty amazing to see how far its come along from just two shipping containers in a feild. Best of luck in the future From Ireland 🇮🇪 🍀💚
Shed build would be class!!
Don't know about you but I'm hoping after the house is complete Spencer starts on the barn/ workspace...Then the storm shelter😁
Betting these two get/have HGTV offers to help others do what they did. Not the last we will see of them.
We have had a few homes built and I don't recall our contractors ever going over the entire wall with a skim coat. They just spray primer over the entire wall once the mudding/sanding is done, and then paint on top of primer. I am super impressed by your thoroughness. Great job.
Im Johnnie come lately...where is your plsce?
I was wondering why he was floating the whole room. Definitely a giant waste of time, it seems to me, unless there’s a reason
And for others, Spencer is applying a skim coat in a manner used originally to create a Level 5 finish, today they spray the mud skim and sand, this process may not, to some show a big difference, but in the long run, it will keep its surface finish and flatness. To me, it just shows he has pride in his workmanship, which is character.
i agree, just primer,texture,paint
My husband and I had our first home “I think you call it “blacked in” (it was the frame up)” by workers, then we did the rest ourselves. We sold 5 years later and decided to build another home (due to 2more children by then),...and we built it nearly all by ourselves, except for concrete foundation and roof. We also built it as we had the cash money. It took us 4 years to actually say it was complete, but we lived in it as it was being built. We only had a toilet, bathtub, kitchen sink to use for a while. Only our bedrooms had the walls up, and bathroom. The rest of the home only had stud boards until we could get walls up. Looking back,...we are amazed at what we accomplished and now wonder how in the heck we did it,...especially with little ones! It truly was a test of our love for one another and of our family. 30 something years later and still living in this house full of treasured memories. If this home ever gets torn down,...there will be small pieces of wood with coloring from our 3 young boys who wanted to help, so we would help them nail the pieces of wood in between the stud bare walls! Oh, I forgot to mention that the outside of the home was completed first, and then we moved in and built as we had the cash weekly. Best wishes to you two and your family. “Where there is a “will”, there’s a “way”, as the old saying goes! God Bless.❤️
Aww, family is important and the building blocks of society. A wonderful testament to love and perseverance.
Excellent testimony of true love, encourage and determination. Congrats to all the people who starts a project such that and finish them with so much sacrifice. All the best for you guys and God bless you!!!!
I believe the words you're looking for is "rough in".
Too bad there wasn't you tube back then. I would have love to see it done. God bless you.
For somebody who has never done drywall before he’s done one hell of a job👍
I hate drywall. I would clean toilets before doing drywall.
Not to mention everything else..
@poodlegirl55 interesting! Looks good in their video so cant be too mad!! Haha!
@BeautifulYou501 It is rarely done. Some high end homes maybe but it adds a lot of cost to the job.
@poodlegirl55 I thought I was crazy!! Like am I actually seeing this? I began to question if thats what your actually supposed to do XD like uhhh you dont need to do that.
I retired from painting 44 years, and not one time did I ever see or do a 100 percent skim coat on sheetrock. Nice work Spence. U da man
Yes he's absolutely amazing he must be a perfectionist man one thing it was a job hundreds of times from different clients but when you live there you wanted to be the absolute best it's hard work. That's amazing just by reading on how to do it he's very talented
@Matthew Demange Only thing I can think of is durability and maybe he didn't want to see any seams at all. I have seen walls that were not textured, and you can usually still see a faint outline of the taped seams. Only thing I can think of. Will look super nice when done, but I'd never go through that much trouble!
Why put mud over the whole sheet rock boards.
Mark , I've been taping for almost 40 years , and i have only done a "level 5" taping job ONCE !!! I think Spencer now knows what i meant by " taping is all in the wrist " . No one can teach you HOW to do it . All they can hope to do is teach you what OUTCOME you need to achieve . The rest , like I said , is all in the wrist . And , every wrist is different .
He is do a damn good job all by himself. I give him a 100% of handling all what he have to, do to get his family home done. Keep up the excellent job. God bless you and your family.
Unlike other TheXvid videos, I find that I have to stop what I’m doing and watch every second of this cause you might miss something. Love this couple and this work...
I never ever post negative comments. However I have one complaint.....could I have 30 minutes of a life contained a week. I enjoy you guys so much.😍🥰
Hi guys! I know this older Canadian lady is really nobody to you, Im just a click on an imaginary thumbs up button. I wanted to let you know how darned EXCITED I am for your growing family. You are an amazing young couple who have been through the grind in sanding and re sanding, and painting and re painting....but you do it with positivity and with supporting each other. It shows ! Congrats on continuing to work hard to achieve your dreams. And THANK YOU for sharing your journey with me. Much appreciated!
From another old Canadian lady, I thank you. You keep me entertained and educated and alive so I can find out what happens next week lol.🍁🇨🇦❤🏒
Life Uncontained brings the world together in admiration and anticipation.
Oh, Canada...another one from the west coast.
Awww...your message was so special...you must be a special lady. Sending you lots of hugs & love. Theresa from Florida :)
Ditto from this Aussie Nan also 👏👏👏👏👏
It must be such a relief to get to the end of preparing the walls. We'll done Spencer.
Can't wait to see the colors you've picked and the flooring!!
Am I the only one that shed a few tears while Spencer was holding Beau and feeding the fish? So sweet!! Then I got the giggles when the fish coming up for his bread scared Mackenzie! Now I’m crying again at the end, thinking what will I watch, that will EVER be as good as this, when this fine family is completely done with their house?!? I’m so proud of you guys, yet sad for the finish line too!!
Bruce Augustine - I certainly hope you are right. Thank you!!
I for 1 do not believe the videos will stop. I have found that as a home owner there is always something to do, be it the inside or the outside. As the family grows then there will be a need for more room. Another or larger bathroom, more kitchen space, maybe an office or quiet space, even if used for a playroom and converted. More power, more water always something, I think the videos will continue even if they change content a little.
Just want to say that you guys are inspiring me and my wife to take to leap in going out of the grip to start building our own container home. Spencer is doing a outstanding job! Love the content :)
That incredible sense of achievement has to be hitting home. Old shipping containers and you guys are ready to final sand and paint. I can almost see Spencer in his rocker on the porch saying how he did all this in his 80s. Love it guys
@David P I was referring to him reminiscing to his grandchildren 50 years from now but whatever lol
@David P He will being telling this story when he is in his 80.....not that he is presently!
Geez....I think Spencer is a lot younger than that.....certainly not in his 80's !
You have made a super job of that Spencer, I’m quite impressed.
I am MIND BLOWN by how far you guys have come from two rusty green shipping containers! I can't wait to see the tears of happiness at the celebration party I hope you have. You BOTH, along with Beau, and next squishy, deserve it so much!
After all this fantastic work that you have done, I can't wait until you tackle building a new dock! One thing about it with all the new and different jobs that you have taken on and mastered you will never be without employment unless you want to be. Keep up the good work, it's been a fantastic journey so far. Thanks!
So glad you went into the MD and took care of it. And btw we can’t “ ignore” anything on you Spencer! ❤️
I know everyone, including myself, urged you to hire out the mudding, but, man you did an awesome job. Well done!
Vince B It’s common practice to skim all the drywall in some countries. Those who have mastered the art also smooth out the plaster during the drying process, no sanding required.
@Vince B Yikes
Looks great for a first timer! What I don’t understand is why he’s skim coating new drywall? You skim coat a joint or seam or when doing a repair or if the wall was textured at one point (and scrapped off), but this is an added unnecessary step. Not to mention he sanded in between each step which is extremely uncommon and unnecessary.
@Comenow,letusreason I can appreciate him being able to say he did it all himself, but I for one am so ready to see one of their videos that includes nothing to do with this process.. I was ready for the next step after the first Sheetrock video. Ha.
Outstanding job! The worst part of these videos is the end. God Bless.
I thought you are referring to the snake and spiders haha
By the time you finish being productive with this masterpiece you guys will realize the entire world has been in a pandemic, looking for things to do while you two accomplish your goals as if nothing is happening.
You kid’s are amazing. My heart is pounding at the thought of you beinging that much closer to the fun part, moving in!! 😘
From noob to full out carpenter. This process is amazing to watch. Especially knowing that you both started with novice knowledge. So hype to see the finished and fully furnished home!!!
Love the progress. Been watching every episode since containers had arrived
same I have watch every single one from day one lol
Me too! Love it
Me too :)
@Jennie pearson Kia ora! How does one do their own ears? LOL
Spencer-- It looks great. You've seriously kicked some tail.
You tow have me hooked on this series. Find myself anticipating each step of the process. Can't wait for flooring. :)
It’s a thing of beauty: Man sees doctor (a rare occurrence) and Man is an artist skim coater!
Hahaha, in my case my wife is the one not wanting to see the doctors or the vaccine. (covid)
Can we all take a sec to appreciate everything Mackenzie does behind the scenes that we don’t get to see so Spencer is able to work so diligently? Behind every successful man is a supportive woman!! Without her taking care of Beau, filming, editing, and everything we’ll never know about!! Shoutout to strong women
That is a legit professional job. Better than multiple new homes I’ve seen. Very nice work!!! 💪
I’ve seen your place as a kind of work of art. I have so enjoyed watching it evolve. Complement to both of you for your artistry
Good job Spencer its all coming together...keep up the good works that y'all doing together as a 😂 happy and funny 👪 family...
Hey doing a great job on the house, everything is looking like professional work.
Love watching you do this he's great at it just let him alone and stop your silly questions while he's working I like you too but you're always asking him questions while he's trying to work but I watch you every time you're up I love watching you and I'm watching your channel keep watching
It seems all to often people get stuck in their comfort zone. They are stuck because they become paralyzed staring into their fear zone. However, just beyond awaits their learning and growth zone. It has been remarkable to see you both depart your comfort zones and conquer your fears. I have been watching since episode 1 and to see how much you have embraced your learning and growth zones is inspiring. So many times people have suggested that you contract out certain portions of your build, but again and again you have stayed the course and risen to the challenges in front of yourselves. You are both accomplishing something that so many would be afraid to even contemplate, let alone embark on. I have genuinely appreciated watching the process and your determination toward achieving your goals and dreams. Keep up the good work!!
Hit it hard at heart but this is reality
I think people refuse to believe these stories are real because that would mean it's possible, giving them no good reason not to do it other than they don't want to. I on the other hand know i could build a house myself if I didn't have a day job, I believe they're doing it alone and doing well, albeit a little slow, but they're happy with the progress so good enough
When he's finished with the dry wall I want to see a happy dance if he's able to move. He's meticulous on his work so I'd imagine he is on his dance moves. 😊
What a blessing God has given you such talent, and has blessed you through this whole process.
Interior painting will appear high-end beautiful because of your meticulous skim finishing. Fine workmanship Spencer.
If only more young people had such a work ethic! I am so proud of them and happy for their family and future!
When all of this is said and done, Spencer is going to literally be that dad that can't sit still and just FINDS things to turn into projects.
@Amigatech Ok, ok...I don't know what their YT income is but that could be a factor 😁.
@Elijah Fluw, there's still plenty he can do here on the channel. TheXvid will continue to pay the bills as their homestead projects expand. I see a playhouse in his future. :)
Personally I think he's going to search for a job and depending of what that is, things change. Hopefully he prefers quality time with his kids over doing projects all the time. But hé, that's just me...
75% done I think, Spencer is doing an excellent job. I can't wait for you guys to finish everything and sit on your comphy sofa set and say It's all done and time to enjoy our new beautiful home. It's near for that day.
Spencer you're doing an excellent job! I can really see how each room is coming together.
It's amazing all you've done. When you decided to tackle the drywall I thought you were crazy. And I understand the personal need and satisfaction in completing it yourselves. On a side not to consider- I installed vinyl plack flooring on my not so perfect floor. Unfortunately it failed in those areas. The resulting flex caused seem buckling and click and lock failure. If the length of the plank is going to cross different elevations it will ultimately failure. I believe glued down vinyl flooring - they are not like the click and lock planks works better for uneven floors, but even the manufactures recommend against it. I decided to use the floor Leveling concrete/substrate in the bedrooms and the result is so noticeable. No flexing nor the resulting kind of squeaking. Just thought I'd mention my experience.
Spencer, I have enjoyed watching you go through this process and the amazing job you have done. The house looks amazing. I have done a few drywall jobs, and have never seen it done the way you did with that final mudding. It looks amazing. Can't wait to see the finnished house. Great job!!
I think you need to build an underground storm shelter next, using a part buried container 👍Absolutely loving your journey
Rust never sleeps 💤
@Stan Simmons smart
Shipping containers aren't designed to be buried. The walls will not hold back the weight of the dirt. If you must bury a container, you will need to protect the walls and ceiling with some sort of support structure such as cinder block or concrete walls that can hold back the pressure of the dirt.
That is a serious and excellent comment.
The accomplishments from when you guys first started till now, just amazing. I mean even Spencer has hair! Keep it up you two!
5:44 since you are leaving the bowl, just pour a bucket of water into it to flush it. Leave the tank off until sanding and painting is complete.5:57 edit: tape off the big water hole before Beau puts a toy down it.
Looks amazing! Great job! Can't wait to see the paint!!! Getting closer everyday! ❤🧡💛💚💙💜
Time flies & you have come a long way !!! Almost time to finally make it your home 🏡 love you guys hugs from England 🏴 xx
So proud of you two and all you have accomplished! I love to see your growing, beautiful family!
Wow, the whole thing looks amazing already. Spencer you are a pro. You guys got me hooked, I'm impatiently waiting for the final product 🥰
Radiant flooring would be a lovely thing at least in one room because those floors are gonna get mighty cold in the winter. Dont mind me, I have always longed for radiant flooring after having spent a winter in Seoul S Korea where they have heated floors. Divine.
It looks great. Happy to see you're almost at the end of working on the walls. You have way more patience than I do.
In my last house i tore out all the carpeting and installed a floating vinyl floor with the underlayment built in. I will say if there is more than a 1/4 inch difference in the floor in any spot they may not like to click together and stay together. If there are high spots then grind them down even after the floor is installed you will feel the lumps and want to rip it back up. I hopes this helps, just sharing what i learned doing that project for the first time.
I love Y'all! Y'all make life looks so harmless and simple😩
You're home is looking awesome!! Looking forward to the next episode when y'all are ready to paint! :D
You guys are amazing! You worked so hard and waited so long. The feeling of accomplishment and just being proud of it must be such an overwhelming feeling!
Well Spencer I must say buds, you’re inspirational and educational. I love Candace’s music and videos and I just love looking forward to next weeks videos. My wife has the bachelor- I have life uncontained. You two have made COVID and quarantine honestly that much more bearable. Love you both, keep it up!!!! Thanks for including the world on your journey
Your patient, meticulous and methodical workmanship, commends you as a person of devoted perseverance through hours of monotonous repetitious work, and inspires an entire generation to rise up and manfully shoulder responsibilities.
"..... inspires an entire generation to rise up...."????LOLNo it doesn't. It shows how to drag out a simple build so you can make money on youtube.
@roberto rivera here here xx
So happy for you guys, it’s been a great trip watching your beautiful home come together, bloody well done.
Way a go guys...such hard workers. It looks beautiful can't wait to see it all decorated.😃😃😃
Y'all have done such an amazing job! Thankyou for letting us come along in your journey!
I’ve been watching you guys from the beginning. It’s amazing what you can’t pushed you have to be so proud of yourself I am a amateur carpenter and I do a lot of drywall work and rough carpentry work and I have to give you credit you’re doing an amazing job when you’re done I have a project for you I want to build a log cabin in the woods maybe you want to help you make another video
Y’all have made such an amazing job in your house! Your babies will grow up in a home build with love and hard work. And that’s exactly what we need for a strong marriage . Can’t wait to see your babies grow in there! Blessings
It's so emotional how far they've come. Beyond inspirational ♡
I started watching when you first moved the containers in...........wow, what a ton of work this has been for you. I am totally amazed at your patience. Love your words of affirmation towards your husband! So excited for you two!
WOW! Amazing progress! What a special home you two are creating for your family!
Its looking mighty good!!😊 i appreciate what troopers you both are and the example you are for how it takes time and sticking with it to bring dreams to life... and, that it is definitely possible!! Thank you! great video, per usual, beauty, humor and realness 👍 its hard not to be a little jealous of the moisture in your neck of the woods, as we sit here in Arizona 😉
Great job! Must feel so good to be at this point in the process! Looks so good!
Yay!! We’re finally here! Oh boy! I’ve enjoyed the journey w The Master Planners! Y’all might’ve had ya pitfalls. BUT I will say this, you sure know how to plan it all out which has made it so enjoyable to me, the audience! Thank you for sharing!!
We need Beau in each episode ! Also, I am so impressed with Spenser. I love him, man... Please take those long walks with the family to re-energize and stay healthy.
Congratulations!!You two doing this, is hope for everyone 💙🌸
So near, but yet so far lol ! Eventually this marathon will turn into a sprint and we can have one HUGE online house warming party for You Tube's #1 couple 😁
I hope this is not the end. You guys are very inspiring! Thank you so much for sharing. Your home is beautiful.
@DC Mc 👍🏼 I think they're not going anywhere, they reached 1M Subs pretty quick I thought. Why not 2M.
Yeah. I can’t wait! Then next project...will that be the shop? Or converting the barn? Or....?They are property owners now. There are always projects to do. Hopefully, they will let us continue to watch their journey.
Every time I watch your videos I'm a little more impressed at what you've accomplished. You guys are doing a great job.
I'm a mudder, I remember when I first started years ago. You guys should be proud cause you've done great. Once you get good at something you start to enjoy doing it. I can't wait to see it lived in with kids and toys and dogs. A home built with love. I'm proud of you guys
These videos are so soothing I’ve been here from the beginning and never miss any updates loves these two and the little person is growing up so fast lol
I never realized there was that much work involved with plastering walls! You all are amazing!!!
the thing about this wall mudding series is...it makes my shoulders ache just watching Spencer work...(edit) and Mackenzie putting in the time while growing a new person is beyond comprehension of an old dude
Looking good. High build primer helps hide a lot of imperfections, plus I think it is easier to spot touch ups after primer.
Spencer is amazing sticking with the task at hand! Great job 👏
I'm so excited to see how far we got with this it's gonna be beautiful
Your channel is so watchable. I’m always learning something about the transformation process of your shipping containers and you guys are just endearing. Thank you for sharing.😊
I’m so happy that you have got to this point he has done such a great job I’m so happy for you all
I just discovered your channel and I am blown away!! I don’t know where this is, but it’s so beautiful. And this is a legacy of love that you have built together! You bring to mind those hearty pioneers who also built homes with little knowledge and grit! 💖👏👍👏💖
You two are so incredibly amazing and inspiring!!!
Spencer… way to see this Herculean task through to the end! No skimping!
Oh there's doubt and it comes from the prego one Kenzie. Maybe not doubt but impatience to the 1000th degree LOL. But there doing good because many couples would be separated and headed for divorce LOL. These types on projects tend to add alot of stress in relationships because there so tedious and monotonous and having a bun in the over adds to all the stress of wanting to be done and moved in.
Wow, So Proud Of Y'all! So Close To The Finish Line! So Happy For Y'all! Can't Wait To See What's Next! Pray That Y'all Have A Very Blessed & Prosperous Week! 😇💖😘💋😁💖😇
Watching you guys for the past year or so gives me so much peace of mind that there are still great people in this world.
Epic work Spencer,what a mammoth task! As always, loving the progress and the vlogs!!!
It’s Loki good amazing so far can’t wait to see the next one. Keep up the hard work and thanks for sharing this with us take care
Spencer you are doing a wonderful job. I feel a closeness to you, McKenzie and family after watching your channel for a long time. I just lost one of my dogs, so I am pretty low, but your video cracked my up, "Don't take away a pregnant women's toilet away." That's funny!!Sounds like things are moving along. I'll be watching every post.
Your home is looking so Great! You All are a Beautiful hardworking and loving Family! Thank you for sharing your weekly videos.
I've been anticipating this point since episode 1!! Wow I can't wait to see it finally complete
This house is getting so beautiful, beautiful job you have done Spencer, you deserves a medal
Wow, this feels good! LOL I can't wait to see what you pick for paint! But I have to say, the walls look gorgeous the way they are so maybe go with something light?
