Rock n Roll Problems? It’s what my husband and I refer to when we’re having issues that others might not…problems that others can’t relate to because they just aren’t at that stage. Fancy problems. You know, it’s like telling a friend who lives on his girlfriend’s couch that you’re trying to decide which quartz countertop to install on your kitchen island: “arctic snowflake” or “arctic ice?” Your friend doesn’t care, no matter how many samples you show him.
I started this blog just after our third attempt to buy an over-priced fixer-upper in the same neighborhood failed (and not because of us in any way). Three strikes and you’re out, right? We decided instead that building might be our best choice, but we aren’t really into traditional houses. We like modern architecture, new techniques, sustainablity, and unusual materials. We weren’t finding what we wanted out there with the usual suspect builders, and we definitely weren’t finding anything affordable. That’s when the idea to build a home from shipping containers came about, and the rest of the story can pretty much be found here on the blog.
This blog is about building a better life. It puts our lot buying and container house construction experiences under the microscope to help you understand the process and to help me keep my sanity amidst all the decisions to be made. Hopefully, someday soon, this blog will celebrate the end of that process and the beginning of a better life, with new rock n roll problems, no doubt.
