    Excellent quality video. Can I ask about all the windows and doors. They look very heavy duty. Can you give the name of the maker please? As well, are the windows and door outset or inset from the wall. I mean, are they flush with the inside or the outside?

    Only thing I worry about with containers is the energy/aura of the space having steel as the structure. Has anyone got any thoughts on this?

    This is gorgeous, I love everything they did to make this beautiful and it is stunning (love the birch wall paper) ……………but having lived in a house that was 9 feet wide for 10 years, I can honestly say don"t!!!! For most people this sounds great, looks great, but it isn't!! All you do is crash into each other all the time and as for having family or friends over…………what bust that was!!

    I’m going to build something like this in my backyard; this is a lot more fancy than what I’m going for but I’m curious how much this build cost to get a ballpark.

    Is there any impact on the container's structural integrity by removing so much of the structure for windows, doors, etc.?

    i don't get it… all these shipping container houses… they look good on camera… but they are soooooo small… claustrophobic even… its cheaper and better to build a shed and convert that to a home

    You’re amazing and I’m very interested in having you build me a container home. Thank you for sharing… I’m in Ontario.

    I wonder if those need foundation , or can they just place it randomly anywhere it's leveled and can be hooked to electricity and water
