    In this episode, we rip the back part of our house up as we continue converting it into an interior part of our home. Making decisions like this is never easy, but we are so excited to start seeing it all come together.

    It does all the graphics one would need to display an idea to a container home lover. Easy. Effective. Must have. I especially enjoyed the auto-roofing option. It made a long story short, and did it with amazing lines.

    This is a great video and from a 63 year old guy, away from my family since Jan 23 and MAY NOT see them until next year... it’s so delightful to see young adults stop and appreciate all of the things they have. Beautiful couple, beautiful child, beautiful dog, beautiful lake ... yup, you’ve got it all. And so do I... even away from my beautiful family... thank goodness for FaceTime/zoom and wonderful friends. This video just makes it so much more enjoyable. Thank you and wishing you three all the best and a wonderful life! R

      COVID... singapore won’t let me back in and if I was allowed, 2 weeks quarantined in a facility ... I only get 8 days off per month in a row... then when I get back to Korea (where I’m based) another 2 weeks quarantined ...without pay.

    I’m 73 and my wife is 64. Ten years ago we built our house on a mountain in Maine, by ourselves, no contractors. Was We’ve been where you are and we feel your pain and also your joy. We now grow almost all of our own vegetables, our house is solar and wood heated and we love it. Keep pushing on, you’ll make it and the journey will be worth it! Thanks for sharing your story with us it brings back good memories. If you ever come to Maine come see us at Journeys End.

    I really love when your videos show up every week. I just wish they could be more regular of even a little bit longer as i feel like having with drawels symptoms couple days after newest video, waiting for the next one. Your journey has been very inspiring, id love for my family to live like this, its just my wife could not live with snakes, bugs etc around. Were lucky in Ireland we dont have much of that but thing is living in a container wouldnt be good here with the weather we have. Good one you guys, till the next video 👍

      I just found this series on TheXvid and love it.. We did something similar in the late 80's buiding a double geodesic dome on our own.. I am also imressed with the meticulous details..which would probaby not be done if you hire contractor.. One detail I missed.. are the metal containers bonded to the electrical ground?? If not..I think they should be..just to be safe...
      Hope you keep the videos going even after the house is finished...Im sure there will be many more projects🙂
