Just installed the new pot rack to free up under cabinet storage space. Dale lovingly slapped together this extremely long bar height table island thingy. We've since decided we will be cutting 2 feet off one side to use as a built in coffee and wine bar. To the new shorter table island thingy we'll be adding two more legs and the side apron trim. The aluminum barstools are stackable for easy storage.

Country Christmas at the container home. This huge cedar juniper is located just outside the sliding doors, so it was chosen as the living Christmas tree.

This is the new room addition on the container house. It is 16 by 16, and we feel so cozy in here this winter. Last weekend we installed the wood burning stove, and it absolutely warmed the entire house perfectly during our very cold spell. Temperatures were dipping into the 20's in Smithville, Texas.

Dale busily installing our new wood burning stove at the container house while Walter plays like a gecko watching Oscar's Oasis on Netflix. It is a US Stove 2000 purchased at Tractor Supply for $600

The line in the floor (below) is where we cut out the wall of the steel shipping container. The length we cut out is approximately 16 feet right through the middle of the 40 foot container, which was located under the air conditioner unit seen to the left in the "BEFORE" pic. The new open kitchen and living area is 16' by 16' and now has refrigerator, sink with sprayer, and microwave. Our double burner cook top is located on the front porch in the outdoor kitchen until we decide where we want to permanently install it inside the container home. It runs on propane, so the bottle must be outside. We built this bar height table island out of rejected cypress boards we rescued from our friends high end garage door manufacturing company. The 26" aluminum barstools are from overstock.com. The light fixtures are $7 shop lights with $20 LED lightbulbs.
work in progress!
