Our Container

OK, so here it is. This recycled Genstar shipping container will be our 320 square feet of Texas Hill Country cottage paradise! We feel we got a good deal on the unit from our buddy "Joe", who has a stockpile of the used shipping containers from the Port of Houston. Although I love the rust brown color of this one with the original graphics, etc. I can't resist the urge to paint it TEAL. I love blue/green hues and if not teal it will need to be a light color besides rust brown. We want a light color so it will reflect the hot Texas sun's powerful rays during the extreme Summer months.

Dale has already gone to Lowe's to get the insulation. I wanted to be there at our Houston shop to help with each aspect of the construction, but it is still very hot and I have the baby. We will just kick back and let the guys do all the preliminary work. While I am home with the WaWa, he is at the shop taking care of installing the insulation. This is one of a few construction needs we will be completing prior to transporting out to the property.
