What a difference a fresh coat of white paint makes in the shipping container!
It’s been a bit since I talked about the next plans for the shipping container. This Summer has been dedicated to getting the garden up and growing, with little time to do anything else on the land. With Fall arriving, we’re going to be spending some time getting the shipping container live-in already. If you guys didn’t read, Matthew and I bought some land in Upstate New York to build a weekend getaway. We got a shipping container delivered to turn into a house. We have big dreams, but we need to take baby steps due to time/budget. For the time being, we’re making it pretty and cozy to spend our weekends in as it’s a bit of a mess now.
We bought the shipping container used because it was much more economical that way. Even though we will have to do extra work, I definitely think it’s worth it for the price difference. In the next few weeks we’ll be working on walls, flooring and doors. First up is painting the interior of the container as it was dirty and had lots of marks due to cargo it spend lugging over the past few years. Eventually the shipping container will be insulated, so this is a temporary solution to making it feel like home while cleaning it up.
