In episode 3 we will show how we installed doors, windows, and insulation in a shipping container home. We experimented with different ways of reinforcing the openings we cut in the corrugated metal of the shipping containers and show how impacted the installation of the doors and trim pieces to cover gaps between the door frames and the containers. The star of this episode is the pair of JELD-WEN Bi-folding doors that we installed parallel to each other.

I would have welded two large containers together and removed the wall so I could have more space because the width of these is something I would have a huge problem with if I had to live in something like that permanently.

The best tip was to hire out your drywallers. Those guys are amazing and worth every penny. That is the one thing I refuse to do myself.

I would love to see you take a FLIR camera from Fluke, and see how how the insulation worked. The metal floor braces I would expect to conduct heat. A flir camera set up and timelapse inside and out would be awesome.

I believe the idea of utilizing containers is that it reduces building costs. You bought in the middle of nowhere, paid more in fees than you paid for the dirt and overbuilt for an earthquake that will never happen.

I love it. But I am using spray-foam insulation. I've built many homes in my life, and nothing is better than spray-foam. Best R-Factor for the money, plus it tightens up everything. I love the sub flooring you put it.

Wow, you did a really good job on this video, very good graphics and attention to detail. We had been thinking of building a house out of shipping containers for years, but we finally decided not to. You did a really good job on yours though, and it looks like you're going to have a super strong house and you won't have to worry about termites or fires. We have a bunch of shipping containers, but we just use them as a garage for a back hoe, and as storage.

I'm sure someone has said something like this already....but with all the steps needed to reinforce and adapt the container, and with all the framing which had to be done anyway.....wouldn't it have been FAR easier just to build the damn house traditionally? You'd have skipped so many levels of problem-solving, welding, modification, ect. Plus...possibly cheaper.

Living in Canada you went way overboard on the construction for a warm climate... Remember you only need to adhere to State and National Building codes.... Key thing to remember in Humid and warm climates or Cold climates... airflow and ventilation... let things breathe and don't go crazy. You should have involved or hired an experienced builder as an advisor IMHO...

At least half of the people commenting on here gets it. This is a normal house with real shipping containers acting as siding. It would be cheaper to build an actual normal house (box) and then use metal siding to get the container look. But its not his fault. Its just whats required by the building department because there are no building codes designed for containers. I researched about building container homes for years and decided against it because of this. The cost is at least as much as a normal house if not more. He's doing it as an exercise and for education for everyone else. For these "boxes" kind of homes, the fastest (therefore cheapest because labor is $$$) would be to use SIPs. Or, since this is really a DIY channel, he could have framed the entire house with 2x6 all by himself if he wasnt trying to use containers lol.

First-year architecture student here, just wondering, why are you insulating so much in a hot arid area? and what purpose does having glass at every opening really add to the design and functionality of the project? Do you think would have an effect on temperature control? and why is there no concern about air flow?

i wouldnt have glued the floor ur carpenter done a good job of cutting and stepping on the joins to fit perfect , if u need any extra wireing u can put hidden lift hoops in the seems and in case u change the finnish flooring in the future u can lift the floor and drop more cables if u need them...

Should only have required drywall inside. The container is already a self supporting structure. And requiring a sprinkler system in a family home is just ridiculous. I'm sooo glad I don't live in Ca anymore.

I the first episode, you mentioned thoughts on various types of foundations. One thought that comes to mind is similar to the slab. The difference being to set in a ledge to set the container down into, thus creating a fastening point that flashing, or as you used, angle iron with insulation to seal the gaps. The second being how you eradicated the area on top of the container that traps water. How did you deal with that issue?

Hell man. If you gotta stick frame the whole inside why not just build a wood house. You are using the shipping container for siding only. Whats the advantage? Or are you just an ignorant democrat?

In California, all vertical structural welds must be welded up, not down... using er70 wire or 7018 rod. And it's a negative on weld thru paint, all welds must be down on clean ground surfaces.

Really lovin it! This is some really detailed documenting that other videos iv seen on the same topic don't have. This series really make it clear building a house from shipping containers is really no where close to cheap. It would seem the only savings is the cost of roofing and siding minus the cost of the container?

I don't get why people would build using containers since they end up having to make a frame anyway. Plus the dimensional constraints from the containers is a big NO for me. Also, for people complaining about the prices in California, I agree 100 percent with you guys and I live here.
