    When will the full, finished tour be uploaded? I watched it once, and wanted to show people but I'm guessing it's private now? Will it be able to be viewed again?

      I've been studying constructing shiping container houses and found a fantastic resource at Magic Container Plans (check it out on google)

    It seems me that the best direction for this channel is this type of content. The presentation is informative, no high pitch voices, just enjoyable. Im starting to like the cozy feel of wooden cabins, might build an A Frame cabin soon 😀.

    Here's a thought...By the time you buy a container for ten to fifteen thousand, and have it transported to your site, and placed level where you want could have saved the money and time by going to your local building supply store, having framing material and metal or plastic corrugated sheets delivered, and you could build your own unit to pass for a container if you like, but at a fraction of the cost, and with better long term serviceability. You can add inches in width to allow for insulation without giving up space, or add height and enjoy a green roof with deeper soil. - just sayin' :)

    • Robin
      Robin 2 months ago +1

      @Levi Kelly They actually are that expensive anywhere around here. I priced them a few times before I built my last house. Anyway, if you build your own container-look dwelling, you do not have the work of cutting out for windows or doors or framing in for insulation. Also, if any part gets dented or scraped, you just replace a panel, but hey, if you wanna go out of your way for extra work and compromise, knock yourself out.

    • Levi Kelly
      Levi Kelly  2 months ago

      The containers themselves are no that expensive at all! Plus the companies usually deliver for free

  • John Flanders
    John Flanders 2 months ago +1

    How do they connect the containers together at that angle? I'm assuming some type of steel support beam and they're welded together.

    How do you deal with the thermal bridge from the outside walls to the internal exposed metal roof?

    Nice! There is a guy in my home town (Lincoln Nebraska) who is building some homes like this...I think he is going to build 2-3 of these on a block he owns. He has done a TON of improvements to the neighborhood his business is in.

  • Kevin Butcher
    Kevin Butcher 3 months ago +1

    Very pretty but not a good use of space.. are you required to use 4x2 internal framing ? makes for very thick walls and limits internal space significantly, the container is a self supporting structure so I'm not sure why framing timber is required to just fix wall panels to.

    Columbus ohio lmao noone wants to visit ohio on airbnb lol.. middle of nowhere my butt. What will people do in winter or when rented this for vacation.. total joke and nice way to waste money.

      @Rafael Acosta
      It's just language and the use of English can be as individual as the scores of folks that use it... Often, it's not a question of if it's right or wrong but as long as it is grammatically correct, it's okay to test and play around the edges of our language to maybe create interest... I know a few writers that mis-spell a word in the first sentence on purpose to draw folks in, to read more, even if it's them looking for another error... It's all in good fun and I appreciate you taking the time to comment and I thank you for that... Thanks...

    Aren't these containers extremely hot in the summertime?? That's going to be an astronomical cooling bill depending on where you are located if I tried to do this in Texas it would be killer hot

      @S W58 wow 😳 unbelievable how expensive that all is.
      Why spend so much on a big house though?
      For that money, move into a 1-2 bedroom, work part-time, and live a happy care free life.

    • S W58
      S W58 3 months ago +1

      If they can do it turney for $160 it's a win win.
      I purchased an acre of land thinking I could buy a factory made one from Canada & be done turnkey ready for $225.
      👋👋👋 SMACKS ! 3 smacks in my face with the approval from the town the crane permits shipping labor everything
      4 years ago I was looking at over $600k & today over $900k. I kept my 1 acre went to other side of town purchased a 3 bedroom 3 bath converted it to 4 bedrooms total cost $355k my container home dream waits on the lottery.

      @Phillip Velednitskiy except the original purpose of shipping container homes before they became "trendy" was to repurpose unused non biodegradable shipping containers that are sitting in container graveyards.

      Depends on the condition
      1 use can be $2-$3k
      Multi use are usually the cheapest $1200-$1800 ...DING DING DING! you may need to power spray heavy steam to disinfect it depending what was in it.

    You said a propane tank runs all your utilities. However, it appears your electric comes from the local power company. Not so much in the middle of nowhere as stated. Even still, truly a nice build though. Congrats!
