Allow me to introduce our new home:

These containers are two of the three that will make our house. They aren’t pristine because they are used shipping containers afterall, but all dings can be hammered out, rust can be treated, and of course they will be painted to our specifications.
So how does a shipping container become a home? Here’s a quick video of how the containers are joined, but this is only part of it:
Before the containers are joined, they are conditioned, insulated, and windows and doors are inserted. After the delivery, placement, and welding (to join the containers together and to the foundation), the interior is finished out in a similar way to any house construction.
I plan to share plenty of photos and video of our place once we get started…and it feels like we’ll be getting started before too long. Our newest update is that we’ve now PASSED two of the four required permit areas! Go, go York House!
