Youngest Boy and I both got a workout winching these things together. I built 2 "L" shaped steel peices that grips the edge of the slab with a chain hook on top to act as an achor to winch to, Ranger was parked on top of it for extra insurance against the bracket riding up and popping off the concrete...

My first video attempt so y'all bear with me!

Great!

So now they are together, welded, tar sealed on top and silicon sealed inside.

Front with porch




Just realized that I have no pics of the back but there is a small concrete walk there for the AC unit etc, a walk through man door and a window over the kitchen sink.

I would be interested in the cost of this if you don't mind sharing. I have a 20 footer that I store my cart and other stuff that needs to be out of the weather and not " walk off " .Thanks.

There was a ton of forethought put into this setup, I can see that from here! I like the way you guys roll!


That looks so much like the way me and dad would do something, it's scary.

I may have missed it, but why did you leave the dirt low in the center of the slab ? I know it saved mix, but any other reason ?

To save concrete cost. The container are on 12" of concrete around perimeter and then get support mid-span by the concrete beam.

Weather tight 45' High Cube (9'-6" tall) can be had for $1900 ea.

The High Cube allows you to frame a full 8' wall and have room for R-19 on top of rafters and run plumbing and electrical over rafters under the insulation.

That cost was a year ago but I bet it hasn't changed much. I shopped hard and looked at lots of containers because I bought these 2 personally and 2 more for the shop and settled on Allstar Container for all. I found cheaper and I found better but I felt he offered the best over all value on a true weather tight container.

I was dead set these were moving spring break so I wound up hiring the electric rough in, other than that I had 2 buddies help me lift the long beams across the big opening and EVERYTHING else has been done by 1 of the 4 of us.

Built my shop and living quarters the same way but then it was just 2 of us and a couple of rug rats

I have the baby brother to this...a lot smaller and mine is mobile. Glad I made it that way...lost my lease the next season after I finished it and had to move it off. I never got around to adding the bathroom addition, but it has running hot water and heating and cooling.

Awesome !! Awesome !!

Just a thought running thru my mind. How are you ventilating the "attic" portion of the container, as well as the living portion ? The metal containers will heat up and create moisture inside. It has to go somewhere.
Just wondering ?

I didn't have any real sweat issues in them when they were here in 90% humidity so I'm hoping I won't now that they are in near negative humidity

If I do it will be tough as there is no dead air space in the attic, it's all insulation.
